On Sunday, 23 August 2015, Archbishop Michael made an annual Archpastoral visit to the Orthodox Church of the Annunciation in Brick, NJ. After the Divine Liturgy, His Eminence presented gramotas (recognition certificates of honor) to Dennis and Ann Marie Gahr, who celebrate 50 years of marriage this year. Gramotas were also presented to five parish couples celebrating 30 years of marriage: Thomas & Deborah Anderson, Thomas & Catherine Berger, Archpriest Gary & Matushka Mary Breton, Steven & Natalie May, and William & Linda Washenko.
Also present were Archpriest Sergius Kuharsky (who celebrated the marriage of the Steven & Natalie May) and Archpriest Igor Burdikoff (who celebrated the marriage of William & Linda Washenko).
May God grant all of them “Many Years!”
