Veterans Recognized for their Sacrifices - 11/11/18

On Sunday November 11th, St. Nicholas Orthodox Church in Bethlehem, PA recognized Veterans for their years of service to our country.  Fr. Matthew then called all service personnel, both Active Duty and Veterans, to the front of the church for a special blessing.  After the Divine Liturgy and the special blessing, a coffee hour was held for all military personnel for their service.
Fr. Matthew was also honored for both the anniversary of his 2nd year Ordination and his first anniversary as rector and spiritual leader at St. Nicholas.

May God grant our Veterans and Fr. Matthew, “Many Years”.
