Cohoes NY and Watervliet NY

For another consecutive year the faithful of Saint Basil Russian Orthodox Church (Watervliet NY) and Saint Nicholas Orthodox Church (Cohoes NY) gathered together for a joint-parish picnic.  The "sister parishes" of the Albany area in upstate New York enjoyed the afternoon of good food, fellowship, and the opportunity to come together as one in Christ. In commemoration of the 10th Anniversary of 9/11, prayers were offered for the victims of the terrorist attacks.

Lubov McKone, a High School student and member of Saint Basil's parish, entertained the children with face-painting.

Joining the two local parish rectors (Father Peter Olson and Father Terenti Wasielewski) was Father Paul Shewczyk of Saint Nicholas Ukrainian Orthodox Church.
