Synodal gramoti were presented to the cathedral parish on the 125th anniversary of its reception into the Orthodox Church and to Archpriest Andrew and Matushka Alexandra Morbey for their years of pastoral ministry to the cathedral community.  A diocesan gramota was presented to Deacon Gregory Ealy and James Varian, Director and President of the choir respectively, marking the choir’s 125 years of prayerful ministry.  A festive banquet followed the Liturgy and presentations.

On Sunday, October 2, Bishop Paul celebrated the Divine Liturgy with the faithful of Saint Mary’s Slavonic liturgical community at Annunciation Chapel at the cathedral’s cemetery.  Welcomed by Archpriest Vladimir von Tsurikov and assisted by Deacon Gregory Ealy, Bishop Paul noted the pastoral commitment of the Diocese to meet the spiritual needs and celebrate the liturgical heritage of the many communities that make up the rich fabric of our local Church.
