Paramus NJ and Rochester NY
PARAMUS NJ: 16 AUGUST 2013

Bishop Michael celebrated the Altar Feast of Christ the Saviour Church in Paramus NJ on Friday, August 16th.  His Grace was met by seven priests and was vested to celebrate the post-feast of the Dormition of the Most Holy Theotokos and the Savior’s Feast of the reception of the icon “not made by hands” from Edessa to Constantinople.

Greeting the bishop was the host rector, Archpriest David Vernak, along with Archpriest John Nehrebecki (Pastor Emeritus), Archpriest Joseph Lickwar (Diocesan Chancellor), Igumen Joseph [Hoffman], Archpriest Joseph Frawley, Archpriest Maryon Chaykivsky, and Priest Igor Kseniuk.

The parish Senior Warden, Reader David Maliniak, welcomed His Grace at the church entryway with the traditional bread and salt. Altar servers were Simeon Brasowski, Mark Riabov, and David Riabov. Alexander Vlachos served as Sub-Deacon. A festive covered dish luncheon was prepared by the parishioners and enjoyed by all.

ROCHESTER NY: 17-18 AUGUST 2013

His commitment to regular Archpastoral visitations to parishes ... large and small, established and missions ... is a testimony to his pastoral guidance and concern as Spiritual Shepherd of the diocesan flock entrusted to his care. Recently, in a 3-day period ... 16-18 August 2013 ... His Grace visited Paramus NJ and Rochester NY (350 miles apart), and then he was off to Lansing NY (94 miles) for a Clergy Family Picnic on-route to the Diocesan Chancery (228 miles).
