Passaic NJ: "When brothers dwell in unity"
With the blessing of His Grace, Bishop Michael, Father Sophrony Royer (rector of Saint John the Baptist Orthodox Church) brought the three Orthodox churches in Passaic NJ together in true worship and prayer on March 30th. In the Third Antiphon of the Liturgy of the Presanctified Gifts we hear, “Behold, how good and pleasant it is when brothers dwell in unity!” Unity was present at this gathering of brothers and sisters in Christ -- an historic "first" -- as clergy and faithful from all three of Passaic’s Orthodox churches came together to worship. This followed a very special visit by His Grace, Alejo, Bishop of Mexico City to the parish on March 19-20.
