Please remember Sub-deacon Matthew in your prayers this week as he prepares for his ordination as Deacon this coming Sunday on his path to the Holy Priesthood.

May he always be worthy!

Lord have mercy and guide his Priestly servant with love and continuous strength!

It was quite a day: the blessing of new icons in that church (St. Nicholas, Homestead, PA - ACROD), the 60th anniversary of their ACRY Communion Breakfast, the tonsuring of a reader, and the ordination of now-Deacon Matthew.  It was a beautiful service, one that I feel honored to have been able to attend and participate in.
