Deacon Anthony Saunders Ordained A Priest

On Saturday, January 1, 2022, Deacon Anthony Saunders was ordained to the Holy Priesthood by His Eminence Archbishop Paul, at Holy Ascension Orthodox Church, in Albion, Michigan. It was a great blessing for Fr. Anthony, Matushka Martha, and their daughters Anna and Emilia to be able to travel to Michigan to share the joy of this day with their home parish. Family members as well as friends from the St. Tikhon's community came to give their support. Concelebrating with His Eminence were Archpriest Joshua Frigerio, Protodeacon John Wesner, and Deacon Justin Jackson. A festive meal followed the Hierarchical Divine Liturgy. Fr. Anthony served Great Vespers that evening and Divine Liturgy the next morning at Holy Ascension. The Saunders family then returned to St. Tikhon's, where Fr. Anthony concelebrated at Theophany services in the St. Tikhon's Monastery Church. Fr. Anthony is a third-year seminarian from the Diocese of the Midwest.
