On Saturday, October 14th His Eminence, Metropolitan Antony led our God-loving and God-protected community of St. Mary Protection of the Theotokos (Pokrova) parish in the celebration of our patronal feast and the 100th anniversary of the consecration of our beautiful cathedral (glory to God!). He was greeted in the narthex by several of our youth (Autumn and Shiloh D., Claire, Helen, and Warren P., and Owen A.) who gave him flowers, by our parish president, Nikolai Fartuch, who gave him beautifully decorated bread (thank you, Stephanie Milan!) , and by our parish priest, Fr. Anthony Perkins, who offered words of thanks for his prayers and love for his parish of St. Mary’s.
