On June 19, His Eminence Archbishop Mark made his annual Archpastoral Visit to St. Mark’s. During the services, he ordained Sergei Arhipov to the subdiaconate and presented the rector, Fr. Martin, with the Jeweled Cross as awarded by the Holy Synod of the Orthodox Church in America. At the conclusion of the Divine Liturgy eight couples were given special blessings as they observe wedding anniversaries in 2022 ranging from five to forty five years. Both the rector and Pdn. Gregory and Mat. Martha Moser were among those couples. The Mosers were also presented with a Gramota from the Holy Synod in recognition of their Fortieth Wedding Anniversary and Pdn. Gregory’s thirty-fifth anniversary of ordination to the diaconate. These presentations were followed by a full parish photograph and parish picnic on the church grounds.
