At the conclusion of the Divine Liturgy, the clergy, faithful and the choir – all in unison chanted GOD GRANT YOU MANY YEARS, honoring their spiritual father. Greeting the Metropolitan, Archbishop-elect Daniel reflected upon the value of the sacred space in which the congregation gathered that day, since at the Sacred space of St. Andrew’s Memorial Church Metropolitan Antony began his archpastoral service and presented His Eminence Metropolitan Antony with a set of archpastoral vestments, also marking the 4th anniversary of Metropolitan’s service as a Prime Hierarch of the UOC of the USA.

Responding to the words of greetings and prayerful chants, Vladyka Metropolitan Antony thanked his spiritual family for the daily prayers and their presence in his life, as he continues to faithfully serve our Lord’s flock.
