Several weeks leading up to Bishop Michael's visit, parishioners of Saints Peter and Paul Orthodox Church started a major renovation of the parish hall. The final painting was completed just days prior to the visit by His Grace.  Father Volodymyr Zablotskyy (parish rector) said:

“All of the work is being done through the efforts of the parishioners and the friends of our parish. I believe it is a direct result of OPERATION BUFFALO, initiated by Bishop Michael in the summer of 2011. The spirit of OPERATION BUFFALO lives on!”

Buffalo NY

Bishop Michael made his annual archpastoral visit to Saints Peter and Paul Orthodox Church in Buffalo NY on 9-10 June 1012 with the celebration of the feast of “All Saints.” The celebrations began with Vespers with Litiya on Saturday (9 June) followed by a dinner in the newly renovated parish hall. On Sunday (10 June) the Hierarchical Divine Liturgy was celebrated.  His Grace encouraged parishioners to “take seriously the call to holiness and to follow the example of saints.” At the conclusion of the Divine Liturgy, Janet Hetzel was awarded a certificate of appreciation by Bishop Michael for faithful service to the parish.
