Ordination of Subdeacon Roby Antony

"You did not choose Me, but I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit." (John 15:16)

By the grace of God, third year seminarian, Antonios Roby Antony was ordained to the Holy Order of the subdiaconate on Saturday, March 13th by the hands of HG Zachariah Mar Nicholovos (Metropolitan of the Northeast American Diocese) at St. Gregorios Malankara Orthodox Syrian Church (Floral Park).

Guests included clergy from across the diocese, Very Rev. John Parker, Dean of St. Tikhon's Orthodox Theological Seminary, and seminarians from both St. Vladimir and St. Tikhon seminaries.

Following the ordination service, was a short public meeting under the leadership of HG Mar Nicholovos and Rev. Gregory Varghese (Vicar of St. Gregorios) to congratulate and recognize the newly ordained subdeacon Antony. In their words of felicitation, both HG Mar Nicholovos and Fr. John reminded the newly ordained subdeacon and all the faithful in attendance, on the importance of being diligent stewards in the Lord's vineyard and the task of ministering to the needs of the Church in this country.
