2013 POKROV Divine Liturgy and Crucession - 10/14/13

The celebration of the Feast Day of our Parish began on Sunday evening at vigil when the Parish Clergy met the Miraculous Kursk Icon of the Theotokos. Vigil was celebrated with visiting clergy: Archpriest Seraphim Gan from Sea Cliff, Archpriest Nikolai Olhovsky - guardian of the Kursk Icon from Synod, Protodeacon Joseph Jarostchuk from Utica NY and Deacon George Temidis from Mahopac.

On a beautifull sunny fall morning, the Parish clergy, Archpriest George Larin and Archpriest Ilia Gorsky and parishioners met and greeted His Eminence Metropolitan Hilarion. Archpriest Victor Teshkovsky from Mahopac, Archpriest Alexander Donchenko from Poughkeepsie and Archpriest Nikolai Olhovsky came to participate in the Divine Service. The Service was embellished by the participation of three protodeacons: Father Joseph Jarostchuk, Father Dimitri Temidis, Father Serge Arlievsky and Father deacon George Temidis.

After the Divine Liturgy, a crucession around the Church was celebrated. The photos (slide show) portray the jubilant and spiritual uplift of the Feast Day.
