On Sunday, December 19, 2021, His Eminence Archbishop Michael visited St. Innocent of Alaska Orthodox Mission in Oneonta, NY. Prior to celebrating the divine liturgy, His Eminence tonsured Timothy Masterjohn to the rank of the Reader. The liturgy was served by his Eminence and joining him were Rev. John Morris, acting rector of St Innocent Mission, V. Rev. Alexey Karlgut, dean of the NYS deanery as well as Deacon Stephan Karlgut.
The parish is grateful that His Eminence was able to visit with us. We are all appreciative to those who came to serve and sing as well.
