Howell, NJ: The Conclusion

oaltdy.jpg (33017 bytes)On Monday, March 8, Archpriest Artemy Vladimirov returned to the diocesan center in Howell, NJ from Holy Cross Monastery. That night, on the eve of the feast of the First and Second Findings of the Holy Head of St. John the Baptist, Fr. Artemy led the Festal Matins in St. George’s Church. A special joy was present during the service – the kamilavka of St. John of Kronstadt arrived from St. Seraphim of Sarov Church in Sea Cliff, NY, and a special grace could be felt in St. George’s. After the service, the parishioners held a farewell dinner at the residence of the diocesan secretary, during which Fr. Artemy shared his impressions of his two-week visit to the United States. The following morning, Fr. Artemy celebrated the Liturgy of the Presanctified Gifts, co-served by Archpriest Serge Lukianov and Priest Jonah Campbell. Also praying in church was Priest Leonid Goferman (rector of Holy Virgin Protection Church in New Brunswick, NJ). Upon completion of the Liturgy, Fr. Artemy delivered a sermon on the finding of the head of St. John the Baptist. After the service, Fr. Artemy departed home to Moscow.
