His Grace, Bishop Michael, visits Christ the Saviour - 07/23/11

On Saturday, July 23 and Sunday, July 24th His Grace Bishop MICHAEL of the Diocese of New York and New Jersey made a visitation to Christ the Saviour Orthodox Church (Harrisburg, PA). His Grace was formerly the dean of St. Tikhon Orthodox Theological Seminary, and was a "fixture" at Christ the Saviour for many years during his visits with the seminary choir and for other services and events. On Sunday afternoon, His Grace presided at the marriage of Laura Hadginske (a daughter of the parish) and Alexei Schmidt (Bishop MICHAEL's driver and assistant).

It was a weekend of many blessings, and it was a unique joy to celebrate the Divine Liturgy with Bishop MICHAEL, to benefit from his insightful homily, and to share once again in our Lord's Body and Blood at the Holy Altar. Many years, O Master!
