howell.lg.jpg (51436 bytes)On Saturday the 27th and Sunday the 28th of February, the Sunday of St. Gregory Palamas, His Grace George, Bishop of Mayfield, led the divine services in St. George’s Church in Howell, NJ. His Grace was co-served by Archpriest Artemy Vladimirov, rector Archpriest Serge Lukianov, Hieromonk Alexander (Frizzell, of Holy Cross Monastery), and parish clergy Priest Jonah Campbell and Deacon Leonid Roschko. During the All-Night Vigil and Divine Liturgy, Fr. Artemy delivered two remarkable sermons. Upon completion of the Liturgy, Fr. Serge greeted Fr. Artemy, and presented him on behalf of the parish with myrrh from the wonder-working Montreal Icon of the Mother of God, as well as an embroidered icon of the Mother of God "of the Sign," in memory of his visit to St. George’s Church. Fr. Artemy thanked the rector in turn, presenting the parish with a particle of the relics of St. Theophan the Recluse. Taking the holy relics, Fr. Serge blessed the worshipers with them, and everyone present sang the magnification to St. Theophan. After lunch, His Grace, accompanied by the above-mentioned clergy, departed for Mayfield, PA, to take part in the Lenten Retreat and Pastoral Conference of the Eastern American Diocese.
