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.

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

Bishop Michael: ON THE MOVE

Bishop Michael continues his travels throughout the diocese, visiting parishes and communities across the vast territory of New York and New Jersey. 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).

Let us pray for his God-protected and blessed travels!
