The Mission Choir visited Sts. Peter and Paul Church, in Lorain, Ohio, over the weekend of May 14-15. This was the third Sunday of Pascha commemorating the Myrrhbearing Women. Fr. Joseph McCartney was the celebrant, along with retired pastor, Archpriest Basil Stoyka.
The weekend began with Vespers, followed by a wonderful dinner! Fr. Steven shared events occurring at St. Tikhon's Seminary, and the Mission Choir sang. Megan Haak joined the mission choir for this event, offering Fr. Steven the opportunity to share her engagement, over Bright Week, to Seminarian Jonathan Lincoln! This is the first engagement of seminary students occurring at St. Tikhons!
The Divine Liturgy on Sunday morning returned everyone to the events of Holy Week and the beginning of the Paschal Feast with the beautiful hymnography. After this the choir was invited to a parishioner's home for a sumptuous Paschal dinner with friends and family of Sts. Peter and Paul Church. What a joyous visitation!
