Archbishop Daniel Leads Liturgical Services in McKees Rocks, PA Honoring Fr. Timothy Tomson on his 25th Anniversary of Holy Priesthood

A small town of over 6,000 residents and a rich history of over 253 years since its formal foundation – McKees Rocks, PA is a home for generations of Ukrainian Orthodox Christians that weekly worship at the Dormition of the Birth-Giver of God Ukrainian Orthodox Church on Ella Street.

The Fifth Sunday after Pascha, which is known as Samaritan Woman Sunday, coincided this year with two other important events in the life of the local community. The entire parish family honored the living and reposed in the Lord mothers of the community and joyfully greeted their pastor – Very Rev. Fr. Timothy Tomson on the 25th Anniversary of his ordination to the Holy Priesthood.
