Bishop Daniel Visits Holy Trinity Ukrainian Orthodox Parish Family of Goshen, IN

On the weekend of June 25-26, Holy Trinity Ukrainian Orthodox parish in Goshen, Indiana received an archpastoral visit from His Grace Bishop Daniel for the commemoration of All the Saints.   At the Saturday evening Vespers, His Grace spoke about the saints who came before us, and what it took them to perfect their lives and to be recognized as saints.  He reminded those present that for many saints, it took a lifetime of the Holy Spirit working through them before being considered as saints. In the same way, he explained, we should be mindful of every aspect of our lives and how we interact with this world, the world beyond the doors of the church temple proper. After vespers, Vladyka Daniel met informally with many of the parishioners in a relaxed manner during dinner. He pointed out his pleasant surprise at the beauty of the Goshen countryside, as he had an opportunity to explore the area a little before vespers.
