UPDATE Watch the live stream of Vespers here:
Bishop Venedykt, a friend of our parish and frequent visitor over the past 25 years has been appointed Eparch of Chicago with installation this Thursday on the Feast of Sts. Peter and Paul. I am honoured to be . directing the singing of Vespers and Matins on this joyful occasion. Here is a loving account of who he is and why his people in Ukraine will miss him. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v0uywbO9zvg
We look forward to Bishop Venedykt's next visit. Until then...For a review of his visit to St. Elias several years ago. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FVGnK-RmS64
We thank God for giving our Church such a hierarch….Pray for him as he begins work here in North America.
