On October 18 (31 N.S.), the Church commemorates the memory of the holy Apostle and Evangelist Luke. This is the Saint’s Day of our superior and rector, His Grace Bishop of Syracuse. As is traditional, Vladyka served the divine liturgy at 6 AM, together with the clergy of the monastery as well as some guest clergy. A short moleben was served at the end of the liturgy, offering prayers for our Vladyka. All those attending the service wished Vladyka good health and God’s strength in his church obediences.
