On a cool, spring Sunday morning, the parish family at St. Vladimir’s Ukrainian Orthodox church gathered for the Divine Liturgy, but this was not just your average Sunday. The parish family was blessed to greet His Eminence Archbishop Daniel and welcome him to our community with Deacon John Charest, Subdeacon Mykola Zomchak, and Seminarian Ihor Protsak. On this fifth Sunday after Pascha, His Eminence Archbishop Daniel joined the parishioners of St. Vladimir’s to remember the fifth anniversary of the repose of our dear spiritual father Metropolitan Constantine of blessed memory. His visit also celebrated twenty-five years of service in the Holy Priesthood of Father John Haluszczak, and the tonsuring as Reader a parishioner – Nicholas Sampson.
