Recognition Sunday at St. Nicholas - 11/17/2019
We were blessed to have His Eminence, our Archbishop Mark, for a pastoral visit and to present awards to members of our congregation. His Eminence tonsured Michael Metz and Nicholas Stepanoff to the rank of Reader. Both are also members of St. Nicholas’s choir. Fr. Mathew Joyner was honored with a violet Skufia, which can be awarded to a married priest. Next, Deacon Geoffrey LoBalbo was presented with the double orarion, for his several years of faithful service. The final award presented by His Eminence, was a Gramota, presented to Subdeacon Michael (Frank) Guydan, for his ongoing and devoted service to Fr. Matthew and the St. Nicholas congregation.
Axios, Axios, Axios!
May God Grant Them Many Blessed Years.
