Bishop Daniel reposes - UPDATED

Bishop Daniel reposed on Monday morning at approximately 8:45 a.m. Bishop Daniel will be brought to the church at 2:45 p.m. on Tuesday Afternoon. The Third Day Panahida will be served at 3 p.m. Vespers and Matins will be served as previously-scheduled, beginning at 4:30 p.m.

On Wednesday morning, Hours and Liturgy will be held on Wednesday morning at 7:15 a.m. Bishop George and Bishop Jerome plan to attend. A Hierarchal Liturgy will be served.  Please consider attending this historic service. It would truly be an embarrassment if our church was empty during a Hierarchal Liturgy where two bishop came to lay our bishop to rest.

Immediately following the Liturgy (at approximately 9:30), the hierarchal funeral service will be held.
