Videos of a Byzantine Ordination and First Divine Liturgy

This past Saturday, Bishop John Kudrick of the Byzantine Catholic Eparchy of Parma, Ohio, ordained Deacon Andrew Summerson to the priesthood at the Church of St Stephen in nearby Euclid. The following day, Fr Summerson celebrated his first Divine Liturgy at the Church of St Mary in Cleveland. Complete video recordings of both of these liturgies have been posted on the YouTube channel of St Mary Magdalene Byzantine Catholic Church, which is also in Cleveland. (Back in May of 2012, I posted photographs of his subdiaconal ordination at the Pontifical Russian College in Rome.)

NLM is very glad to offer our congratulations to Fr Summerson, to all his family and friends, and to the clergy and faithful of the Parma Eparchy. Ἄξιος! Ἄξιος! Ἄξιος! многая лѣта!
