The Mission Choir visited St. John the Baptist Church, Campbell, Ohio, over the weekend of February 13-14, 2016. This was an incredibly joyous celebration led by His Grace, Paul, Bishop of Chicago and the Diocese of the Midwest. Fr. Andrew D. Nelko (STOTS Class of 1981), father of our current seminarian Andrew Nelko is parish pastor, and serving with him was Dn. David Gemmel.
The Mission Choir was visited by Fr. Gabriel Bilas (STOTS Class of 2015), who joined in singing the responses during Great Vespers. The parish hosted a dinner for parishioners and choir members following Vespers. On Sunday we celebrated a hierarchical Divine Liturgy, followed by an incredible steak luncheon. The Mission Choir sang a brief concert during the luncheon. We are most grateful for the warm hospitality shown by St. John the Baptist parish! Thank you to Nathanael Nelko who forwarded some of the photos in the gallery.
