[Clifton, NJ] - On the weekend of February 11 & 12th., His Eminence, Archbishop Michael, blessed our parish of the Assumption of the Holy Virgin Church in Clifton NJ with his annual Archpastoral Visit. We had beautiful services in which he preached about the Prodigal Son, urging us to be repentant. At the Divine Liturgy, he was assisted by Deacon Stefan, Subdeacon Matthew, Subdeacon Zachary as well as our own Subdeacon Christopher. At the end of the Liturgy, he presented Anthony Ersalesi with a gromota thanking him for his dedication in up keeping the church grounds. After getting his blessing, we went down to the parish hall for a breakfast to celebrate his presence & at the end of it, our Church School students presented His Eminence with a bouquet.
