On Wednesday, 15 February 2022, Priest Joshua Genig (Dean of the Central States) visited St. Nicholas parish in Edinboro, PA. Parish Rector, Archpriest Seraphim Wing, served with Fr. Joshua for the Divine Liturgy on the feast of the Presentation of the Lord.
At the end of the Divine Liturgy, Fr. Joshua offered a homily on the Gospel, congratulating the faithful on the Feast. Following the Divine Liturgy, a wonderful Lenten meal was prepared and the faithful were able to interact with the Dean, asking questions and receiving updates on the life of the Patriarchal Parishes.
Especially apparent was the joy in the parish, particularly among the several young families that have recently joined or are catechumens.
