To formally close our centennial celebration, it was decided by the centennial committee that we will invite Bishop Tikhon of South Canaan to celebrate the Divine Liturgy on Sunday, December 5, 2004, in honor of the feast day of St. Nicholas, our patron Saint. This will imitate the time when St. Patriarch Tikhon came to consecrate the church around the same time in 1904. Greeting and Vesting of His Grace will begin at 9:00AM that morning. A lenten dinner will be served in the church hall following services that morning.
