We turned 100 years!

On Sunday, October 25, 2015 our parish celebrated one hundred years. The hierarchical Divine Liturgy was led by the His Eminence, the Most Reverend Archbishop Irinee. In addition to the Rector of the Cathedral, Fr. Vasyl Kolega and second priest, Fr. Geoffrey, a number of high-ranked clergy from Russia, United States and Canada were also present. As one of the guests said in his greeting, "Today we celebrate a second Pascha", and indeed, the church was full of celebrating parishioners and guests. Indeed, it felt as joyous as Easter service.
At the end of the service and at the banquet the Parish Council recognized the oldest parishioners, the current and all previous Rectors of the Cathedral and the Archbishop Irinee, by awarding them a special Jubilee medal dedicated to the 100 years of the Parish. More photos from the celebration will follow.
