Passaic NJ
Feast of the Ascension

On Thursday, 13 June, the faithful of Saint John the Baptist Church in Passaic NJ joyfully celebrated a hierarchical Divine Liturgy on the Feast of the Ascension with Bishop Michael. His Grace presented the traditional  honorary “Jeweled Cross” to the parish rector, Archpriest Sophrony Royer, in recognition and thanks for his many years of faithful priestly service to Christ and His Holy Church.  “Many Years!” to Father Sophrony.

Assisting His Grace during the Divine Liturgy were: Archdeacon Michael Suvak,  Sub-Deacon Nilus Klingel, and parishioner John Holoduek, Jr.  Following the Divine Liturgy everyone was invited to lunch at the Saville Restaurant in Passaic.
