On the weekend of September 8-9, 2018, His Grace, Bishop Gregory traveled to St. John The Baptist Orthodox Church in Stratford, CT (Broadbridge Avenue) to lead the parish in the celebration of the Twenty-Fifth Anniversary of Ordination to the Holy Priesthood of their Pastor, the Very Rev. Protopresbyter Peter Paprosk..The parishioners were delighted to welcome His Grace, Bishop Gregory for his second visit to parish. His Grace presided over Great Vespers on Saturday evening and celebrated his first Hierarchical Liturgy in the parish on Sunday Morning. His Grace was welcomed prior to Divine Liturgy with the traditional gifts of bread and salt by Parish Council President William Bilcheck, and was greeted by Fr. Peter and presented with the parish hand cross.
I greet you with much joy as begin the New Church Year.
With Summer vacation over and our children and young adults back to school, parish life now shifts to high gear. Later this month our Church School program begins and we resume our Adult Scripture Study.
As we begin the new Church Year, It is good that we celebrate the Great Feast of the Exaltation of the Precious and Live-giving Cross. Its placement by the Church at this time of the year is intentional, as it reminds us about the reality of the life in Christ,.
