On Monday, October 1st, Bishop Michael will celebrate a special Service of Thanksgiving (Molieben) marking the 60th Anniversary of the priestly ordination of Protopresbyter Daniel Hubiak. The service will take place at 1:00 p.m. at Saints Peter and Paul Church, Jersey City NJ. A reception in the church hall will follow.
All clergy colleagues, former parishioners, family and friends of Father Daniel and Matushka Dunia are cordially invited to join in this celebration on October 1, 2012. Please contact Father Joseph Lickwar (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you plan to attend.
Father Daniel and his wife Matushka Evelyn (known by all as Dunia) have served the Orthodox Church in America with unwavering dedication and faithfulness in a number of capacities and parishes, many of them in our diocese: Brooklyn NY (Transfiguration Church), East Meadow NY (Holy Trinity Church), Saint Sergius Chapel (Syosset NY), Jersey City NJ (Saints Peter and Paul Church), and presently on temporary assignment in Mays Landing NJ (Church of the Mother of God).
Father Daniel was Chancellor of the Orthodox Church in America for 15 years; he was a member of the official delegation sent to Moscow to receive the Tomos of Autocephaly. Father Daniel and Matushka Dunia also spent a number of years establishing and serving the OCA podvorye (representation church) in Moscow. They are fondly remembered, with love and respect, in every place they have served Christ and His Holy Church.
