He seems so wonderful. Though I'm not in the OCA, I live in the OCA's Midwest Diocese, a wonderful diocese. The ACROD mission that Fr. Matthias attended, used my GOAA parish in the early '70's while their new edifice was being constructed and is located a very short distance from my parish. Their founding priest would substitute for my GOAA priest when he would vacation, and upon his retirement, he was the liturgical assistant at my parish. Knowing Fr. Stephen Jula as I do, I am so pleased to see Fr. Matthias remembering to honor Fr. Stephen, for his youthful inspiration. Fr. Stephen is retired, Pastor Emeritus of Christ the Savior American Orthodox Church, and attends a GOAA parish near his current residence in a western suburb of Greater Cleveland; he must be so pleased to see a spiritual child becoming a bishop.
