Brooklyn, NY: Archpastoral Visit to St. John the Baptist Church

On Sunday, September 22, with the blessing of His Eminence, Metropolitan Hilarion, His Grace, Bishop Jerome celebrated the Divine Liturgy in St. John the Baptist Church in Brooklyn, NY. His Grace was co-served by parish rector Archpriest Alexander Belya, Archimandrite Ioann (Magramm; cleric of the Middle American Diocese), Deacon Alexander Revut (MP cleric), and parish Deacon Petr Utkin. Worshippers filled the cozy church to the brim.

Bishop Jerome delivered a homily on the words from the Epistle reading: "Watch, stand fast in the faith, be brave, be strong. 14 Let all that you do be done with love" (1 Corinthians 16:13-14). Upon completion of the Liturgy, a moleben was served.

After the services, a luncheon was held at a nearby Russian restaurant.
