Concelebrating with him at Divine Liturgy were Archpriests Mark Shinn (rector of St. Andrew Naval Cathedral in Philadelphia, PA), Chad Williams (rector of St. Alexander Nevsky Memorial Church in Richmond, ME), Boris Henderson (rector of All Saints of Russia Church in Denver, CO), and Boris Slootsky (parish cleric), Abbot Tikhon (Gayfudinov; abbot of Holy Protection Skete in Buena, NJ), and Priest Anthony Williams and Protodeacon Paul Drozdowski (parish clerics). Addressing the parish after Liturgy, Fr. Serge expressed his overwhelming gratitude to the Lord for sending him a faithful companion in life in his Matushka Lubov, “who throughout the years has always been at my side serving the Lord and the parishioners.” He also noted that his brother, Protodeacon Nicholas of blessed memory, was ordained on this same date in 1998 and expressed his thanks to Abbess Elizabeth from the Convent of St. Mary Magdalene in Gethsemane, who sent as a gift a Jerusalem Cross blessed on the Tomb of Christ.
