Bishop MARK and Fr. Paul Schellbach visit St. Johns - 06/23/13

On Sunday, June 23, St. John the Baptist Orthodox Church welcomed 2 very special guests to celebrate Pentecost. Fr. Paul Schellbach served Divine Liturgy as well as Vespers services on Saturday June 22. Following Liturgy, the parish retired to Repella Hall for a luncheon. The purpose of the visit was to select a new priest for St. Johns. His Grace, Bishop MARK reviewed questions developed from a survey with Fr. Paul. The parish then had time to ask Fr. Paul questions of their own. The process will continue, other clergy are scheduled to visit, and the Parish will make a selection later this summer with the input of His Grace, Bishop MELCHISEDEK and His Grace Bishop MARK.
