Celebrating 110 Years: St. John the Baptist Orthodox Church - Spring Valley, NY

On June 1, 2024, Archbishop Michael and Father Gary Breton, Dean of the NJ Deanery, joined the faithful and guests of St. John the Baptist Orthodox Church in Spring Valley, NY, to celebrate the 110th anniversary of the setting of the cornerstone of the parish church.

A highlight of the celebration was seeing Dr. Damien Havriliak and Sonia Arthur, lifelong parishioners, receive the Gramota of the Holy Synod of the OCA. This recognition underscores their enduring commitment to the church and its mission.

The Hierarchical Divine Liturgy was followed by a luncheon reception at a local restaurant, where the community gathered to share in fellowship and joy. The day was a testament to the strength and unity of St. John the Baptist Orthodox Church.

His Eminence presented Father John Holoduek with his first priestly award -- the nabedrennik -- for his faithful service to the Spring Valley parish.
