Parish 50th Anniversary

Holy Trinity Church, Randolph NJ, entered its 51st year in a glorious weekend (4-5 October 2015)! At a 50th Anniversary Great Vespers on Saturday evening, Bishop Michael blessed the renovated fellowship facility, renamed “Founders Hall,” as well as new carved altar cover and a table of oblation. The new Hall is dedicated to the small group of Morris County residents who started the parish in 1964 under the guidance of Very Reverend John Nehrebecki, “through their desire for God, vision, and sacrifice.” On Sunday, following the celebratory Hierarchical Divine Liturgy, more than 200 guests enjoyed a brief, professionally-produced video exploring the history and character of the parish.

Parishioners and guests enjoyed a repast in the Hall on Saturday evening and then returned Sunday morning for a Hierarchical Divine Liturgy presided by His Grace, and celebrated by Father John Nehrebecki, Father David R. Fox (parish rector), Father George Hasenecz (retired, rector 1965-2009), and “sons of the parish”: Father John Jillions (OCA Chancellor), and Proto-deacon Peter Danilchick.

His Grace presented Certificates of Appreciation (Grammata) to the parish as a whole and to Carol Wetmore, parish choir director since 1968. The young women of the Saint Anna’s and Saint Catherine’s groups presented Bishop Michael with a donation for the Bethany School for Girls in Jerusalem.

At the Anniversary Banquet following the Liturgy, more than 200 guests enjoyed a short, professionally-produced video exploring the history and character of the parish. Visiting clergy offered remarks, as did Holy Trinity’s current Senior Warden, Suzette Eremin, and the parish’s first Senior Warden, John Miseyko. At age 93, John returned for the event from his home in Florida and spoke of his abundant pride at seeing the beautiful and flourishing church that was his dream in 1964. Banquet attendees were offered a full-color book of historical and current church photos, a commemorative photo card, a cookbook sampler of parishioner recipes, and a CD recorded by the parish choir: “Rejoice in the Lord Always.”

With God’s blessings and with the continued stewardship of its parishioners, may Holy Trinity continue to “Offer the Fullness of the Christian Faith” for the next 50 years and beyond!
