Dn. Samuel Davis, who enrolled in a one-year program of studies this fall, and quickly upon enrollment decided to complete the whole degree program, was ordained to the Holy Priesthood by His Eminence Michael, Archbishop of the Diocese of New York and New Jersey.  He was ordained in what has been a mission parish in the diocese, St. Simon of Cyrene Mission in New Brunswick, NJ.  Among the concelebrants was Archpriest Moses Berry.  The mission anticipates reaching out to the African-American and Hispanic communities in the local area, and Fr. Samuel’s ordination will allow this mission to work toward a more complete liturgical life even while Fr. Samuel completes his studies.  Axios!  May God grant Fr. Samuel, Matushka Julitssa, and their children Isaac, Morgan, Ava, and Alexander, many years!
