Ordination: Father Leonid (Derek) Schmidt - 08/15/11

Reverend Father Leonid Schmidt was ordained to the Holy Priesthood on Saturday, 13 August, at Assumption of the Holy Virgin Church in Philadelphia PA by His Grace, Bishop Michael. Having served faithfully as the personal assistant and driver for His Grace over the past year, Father Leonid is well-known and loved throughout the diocese. He was united to Laura in holy matrimony on 24 July, ordained to the diaconate two weeks later, and now joins the priestly brotherhood of the Diocese of New York and New Jersey. Father Leonid and Matushka Laura are assigned to Saints Peter and Paul Church in Syracuse NY (New York State Deanery), where he will minister as assistant priest. “Axios!”
