On May 12th, the Mission Choir, together with Archpriest Steven Voytovich, seminary dean, visited Holy Apostles Church, Mechanicsburg, PA, now in their new church space! After singing the responses for Great Vespers, the parish hosted a wonderful dinner for all present. The new church space is quite beautiful. Archpriest Timothy Hojnicki (STOTS 2005), parish pastor, reflected on being present as a subdeacon on May 8, 2004, when St. Alexis Church, in Clinton, CT, was consecrated, where Fr. Steven was then serving. Fr. Steven in turn celebrated the wonderful steps now taken by Holy Apostles Church, and expressed his hope to attend consecration services one day!
On May 13th, the Sixth Sunday of Holy Pascha, the St. Tikhon Seminary Mission Choir visited the community of Christ the Saviour and sang the responses at the Divine Liturgy. Archpriest Stephen Vernak (STOTS, 2007) shared that it was a special joy to welcome back their former choir director, Rdr. James Latimer, and his growing family! Sunday was also Mother's Day, and the parish "O" Club sponsored gifts for all of the women attending church today. Glory to God for all things! Christ is Risen! Archpriest Daniel Ressetar (STOTS, 1948), pastorl emeritus, concelebrated the Divine Liturgy! Fr. Stephen wore a set of his grandfather's vestments, the Mitred Archpriest John Nehrebecki, as he asked for prayers for his 40th day of repose.
