The Diocesan Faithful offer their greetings to His Grace, Bishop Michael, on the occasion of his birthday on August 29th. "We value His Grace for his knowledge of Holy Scripture, Holy Tradition, pastoral skill, the setting of high standards, and the invaluable gift of communicating these," said Archpriest Joseph Lickwar (Diocesan Chancellor). "Knowledge and skill are precious for an Archpastor and for the life of the faithful of the diocese. We pray that our Lord will grant His Grace long life, health, peace and salvation in the service of Christ and His Church." Eis polla eti, Despota!
