Pearl River NY
Holy Mystery of Unction

The Orthodox Christian Church of the Holy Transfiguration in Pearl River NY celebrated the Holy Mystery of Unction with Bishop Michael and 6 concelebrating priests on Tuesday evening, 8 April 2014. In his homily, His Grace expounded on the image of our Lord Jesus Christ as Healer with the theme: “By His stripes we are healed” and the Church as the place of healing. This was the 7th annual celebration with a full complement of 7 priests serving. It is a tradition well received and joyfully anticipated by parishioners as well as the invited clergy and faithful from the region.

 

Igumen Joseph welcomed Bishop Michael, the gathering of priests, and many Orthodox faithful visitors, inviting all to a repast in the parish hall hosted by the Starosta, Boris Maltsev, and parishioners.


Concelebrating with Bishop Michael were: Very Reverend Igumen Joseph (Hoffman; rector); Archpriest Kyril Riggs (Saint John the Baptist Church, Spring Valley NY); Archpriest Samuel Kedala (Holy Spirit Church, Wantage NJ); Archpriest Stephen Evanina (Assumption of the Holy Virgin Church, Clifton NJ); Priest Igor Kseniuk (Saint John the Baptist Church, Passaic NJ); and Priest Matthew Brown (Holy Apostles Church, Saddle Brook NJ).

 

Mark Federoff (Saints Peter & Paul Church, Clifton NJ) and Alexander Vlachos (Christ the Saviour Church, Paramus NJ) served as Sub-deacons.

 

Readers for the service were Reader Joseph Lawliss (Saint Nicholas Cathedral, Moscow Patriarchate, New York NY), and parishioners: John Chan, Anastasia Maltsev and Marianna Maltsev. The responses were sung by the parish choir under the skilled direction of Tatiana Tjoa.
