hwll.lg.jpg (52917 bytes)On Sunday, March 14, local clergy performed the rite of Holy Unction in St. George’s Church in Howell, NJ. Holy Unction is a sacrament that, by blessing the believer’s body with oil, calls down God’s grace, healing one’s physical and spiritual infirmities. The performance of the sacrament was led by rector Archpriest Serge Lukianov, co-served by Archpriest Philip Petrovsky (rector of the Holy Virgin Protection English Mission in Jackson, NJ), Archpriest Alexander Golubov (cleric of St. Nicholas Patriarchal Cathedral in New York), Priest Leonid Goferman (rector of Holy Virgin Protection Church in New Brunswick, NJ), Priest Seraphim Chemodakov (cleric of St. Alexander Nevsky Cathedral in Lakewood, NJ), Priest Serge Ledkovsky (deputy rector of St. Vladimir Memorial Church in Jackson, NJ), Priest Jonah Campbell (parish cleric), Deacon Leonid Roschko (parish cleric), and Deacon Nathan Mousselli (cleric of St. Alexander Nevsky Cathedral in Lakewood, NJ). A multitude of the faithful gathered for the unction service from across the New Jersey deanery, in order that they might repent of their sins and be cleansed before the great feast of Christ’s Resurrection.
