In Pennsylvania, parishioners and clergy of the Russian Orthodox Cathedral in Mayfield brought Christmas joy to many neighbors. They held an open house at church, and paid visits to residents of local nursing homes.

From the article:
Quote
Sorochka and his wife, Matrushka Alexandra Sorochka, have been assigned to the parish for 41 years, and every year on the second day of Christmas, they host an open house following the church service.

“They make us feel very welcome, and they make us feel like family,” Alexa Pavuk, of Peckville, said about the Sorochkas.

He will come again with glory to judge the living and the dead. His kingdom will have no end.
