October 21 (Nov. 4 O.S.) is the day of the commemoration of the Venerable Hilarion of the Kiev Caves. This was the Name’s Day of our ever-memorable Metropolitan Hilarion. His Eminence, Metropolitan Nicholas came from New York to serve the Divine Liturgy on this day. His Grace Bishop Luke along with the monastery clergy concelebrated with the Metropolitan.
Vladyka Nicholas also offered a commemorative meal at noon on the day, which was followed by a pannikhida also served by the two bishops and monastery clergy, at the grave of Vladyka Hilarion. Memory eternal to our beloved late First Hierarch!
