All of the meeting attendees were truly impressed by the skillful and gracious hospitality provided by the St. Sophia UOL Chapter. The morning began with a Moleben service at St. Sophia’s Three Holy Hierarchs Chapel served by His Eminence Metropolitan Antony and His Grace Bishop Daniel. During the day-long meeting that followed, the NEB was treated to two delicious homemade meals (breakfast and lunch) prepared by the hands of the St. Sophia Seminarians themselves!
Overall, the meeting was very productive. The National Executive Board is very enthusiastic about meeting the challenges in the upcoming year and eager to take a step forward to make our church better for the future. Members in attendance were: His Eminence Metropolitan Antony, His Grace Bishop Daniel, Fr. Taras Naumenko (Spiritual Advisor), John Holowko (President), Daria Pishko Komichak (2nd Vice President), Jack Roditski (Treasurer), Monica O’Donnell-via conference call (Financial Secretary), Pani Matka Olena Sendeha (Recording Secretary), Ginny Ulbricht (Corresponding Secretary), Teresa Linck (Auditor), Christine Charest (Convention Chair Person), and Michael Komichak (Immediate Past President).
The meeting came to a close in the late afternoon. St. Vladimir Senior UOL Chapter in Philadelphia, PA graciously offered to host the winter National Executive Board meeting.
