The faithful of St. Nicholas Orthodox Church, in Burton, Michigan, this year celebrate the 95th year since the church opened. Some members have been there for decades, while others are relatively new; the whole community is welcome to the festivities, which began at the blessing of the waters last week and will continue throughout the year.

From the article:
Quote
“It will culminate with a large, formal celebration in the fall,”(the priest) said. “It was in the fall of 1916 that the first liturgy was celebrated, and we want to commemorate that.”

Although the church is currently in its third location — it was located on Liberty Street, in Flint, before it moved to its location on Center Street, in Burton, in 1967 — many of its members have moved along with it, Butrie said.

Fran Lebowitz: Everything. There is not one thing with which I am satisfied.
