Bishop John Leads Patronal Feastday Celebrations in St Nicholas Cathedral Престольное торжество Николаевского Патриаршего собора Нью-Йорка
At Yolka, our kids reenacted the elevation of St Nicholas to episcopacy. Afterwards they sang "О Кто Николая любит" ("O Who Loves Nicholas the saintly"). As they were singing, St Nicholas himself (!) showed up and showered our kids with the gifts.
Birthday and name day girls: Ava Levitsky and Helena Paranyuk celebrated their birthdays and Barbara Preciado and Barbara Sedorenko - name day, on the day of commemoration of Greatmartyr Barbara.
May God grant you all many years!
With a generous donation from Dorothy Davidson we were able to upgrade our church kitchen in the fellowship hall (church basement) with a new microwave, stove, and dishwasher.
Thank you and may our Lord Jesus Christ bless Dorothy's kind heart!
