Paschal Liturgy Celebrated in Plattsburgh, New York

Bringing the joy of Pascha to a little-served region of upstate New York, a Paschal Divine Liturgy was served in Plattsburgh, New York, on Bright Saturday, April 30, 2022. Archpriest Terenti Wasielewski, Rector of St. Nicholas Church in Cohoes, New York, celebrated the Liturgy, joined by 10 faithful laypersons. The singing was led by Mark Wolosen, choir director of the Cohoes parish. This initial Liturgy is the first of a series of services planned to determine the viability of a potential future Mission Station in Plattsburgh.

Following the Liturgy, the participants gathered for lunch, where they discussed future ideas for the possible planting and promoting of an Orthodox community in the area. Anyone interested in being a part of bringing Orthodox Christian worship to Plattsburgh, a part of New York State without a canonical Orthodox church, is invited to contact the Diocesan Chancery.
