Metropolitan Nicholas Offers Video Greetings to NYC Parish Celebration

JOHNSTOWN, PA / NEW YORK, NY --- His Eminence, Metropolitan Nicholas, once again used the newly created internet broadcasting medium to bridge the miles between the Johnstown cathedral  and  her sister diocesan parishes by offering a live greeting to St. Nicholas of Myra Parish in New York City earlier today.  Click Here To View Video Greeting

Unable to travel to New York City for  St. Nicholas' Annual Kermish (Names Day Celebration),  His Eminence, delivered a live greeting, congratulating the faithful of the "10th Street"  parish on the completion of extensive renovations to their parish fellowship and banquet hall, and the installation of a new elevator. His Eminence's remarks were projected on a large screen monitor where all who were in attendance could both see and hear His greeting.  Leading the faithful in singing of the traditional hymn to St. Nicholas (O Kto Kto) and in the singing of  God Grant  You Many Years (Mnohaja Lita),  Metropolitan Nicholas  concluded  by giving  His blessing to begin the ribbon cutting ceremony and the celebratory banquet.

May God Bless the Faithful of  St. Nicholas of Myra Church on the celebration of their Kermish or Names' Day Celebration, and Preserve them for Many Years.
