Fathers, Brothers, and Sisters,
 
Christ is in our midst! Krishti midis nesh! 

I'm pleased to inform you that our seminarian, Juxhin Shkurti, is scheduled to be tonsured as a reader on Wednesday, September 14, at St. Vladimir's Seminary in Yonkers, NY. The Liturgy will begin at 9am that morning, and Met. Tikhon will preside at this feast of the Holy Cross.
At the conclusion of our archdiocesan assembly, Juxhin will be ordained to the subdiaconate here at St. Nicholas in Jamaica, NY on Saturday, September 24. Liturgy that morning will also begin at nine. 

I encourage all who are able to attend these events and to offer your support and the support of our archdiocese to Juxhin and Livia. I ask that we all remember them in prayer in these coming weeks. All diocesan clergy are welcome and strongly encouraged to attend the September 24th service. For those clergy who wish to be present for the tonsuring at St. Vladimir's, please reach out to me so that I can be in touch with the chapel rector to ensure that there is room for us as guests.

Please do share this good news with any whom you think may be interested, and do commit to pray for this young couple as they embark on these first steps toward greater service of Christ and His holy Church.

Fr. Nikodhim
