The church of the Mother of God, “Joy of All Who Sorrow,” in Princeton NJ celebrated the opening of its new Church on 29-30 January 2016. Now located at 904 Cherry Hill Road in Princeton, the parish project began with the purchase of a home and property in December of 2010.  The grand opening event, marked by prayerful thanksgiving and celebration, began on Friday evening as Archbishop Michael and long-time parishioner, Nina Robinson, cut the ribbon and everyone entered for the first time to celebrate of Great Vespers.

 

Saturday began with the greeting of Archbishop Michael and his vesting. The church was then blessed and a new antimension (a liturgical cloth upon which every Liturgy is celebrated) was consecrated.  Archpriest John Jillions (Chancellor, Orthodox Church in America) brought the relics of Hieromartyr Hilarion, Archbishop of Vereiya, to be placed in the antimension.

 

Along with Father Jillions, celebrants included: Archpriest Peter Baktis (parish Rector); Archpriest Joseph Lickwar (Chancellor, Diocese of New York &  and New Jersey); Archpriest Gary Breton (Dean, New Jersey Deanery); Archpriest Sergius Kuharsky; Archpriest James Parsells; Archpriest Maryan Chaykivsky; Priest Volodymyr Chaykivskyi; Archdeacon Michael Suvak; and Sub-deacon Mark Federoff. 

 

The regular schedule of services will include Sunday Divine Liturgy at 10:00 a.m. and Great Vespers on Saturday at 6:00 p.m.

 

A schedule of educational programs is planned.
