our Eminence Metropolitan Nicholas of Detroit,

Beloved clergy and devout parishioners of Saint John,

It seems “meet and right” to close out my pastoral visit to the Metropolis of Detroit with Great Compline, the service of closing a day. But the end of this visit is not and ending, but rather a beginning – a beginning of a long relationship with the wonderful faithful of this Holy Metropolis, many of whom I have had the privilege to meet these past days.
