During chaplain endorsing body meetings in Washington, D.C. these past few days, it was wonderful to see Archpriest Michael (Class of 1964) and Matushka Nadia Koblosh. Upon graduation from St. Tikhon's Seminary, Fr. Michael pursued an M.Div. Degree at St. Vladimir's Seminary. While doing so he taught at St. Tikhon's in Liturgical Theology through much of the 70's. Fr. and Mat. have served in a number of parishes including, Holy Trinity in East Meadow, Long Island, Sts. Cyril and Methodius Church in Terryville, CT., Holy Ghost Church, Bridgeport, CT., began Christ the Savior Mission in Southbury, CT., and served in St. Nicholas Church, Whitestone, NY. As shown in the photos, Fr. Michael is presently serving at All Saints of America Mission in Alexandria, VA, and Matushka Nadia directs the choir. They were integral to beginning this mission in 2008.
As we both spent significant time in the Diocese of New England, it was wonderful to catch up with one another once again. May God grant you and your family many blessed years!
