Awards and Celebrations - 09/26/15

After the procession, we returned into the temple.

Vldyka IRÉNÉE did a memorial blessing to remember our founders, and awarded a Gramata to each of our long-time faithful.   Nayda, John, Love, and Mary were all baptized at St. John the Divine as infants and continue to live out their faith as members of our community.
