The Feast of St. Herman brought several clergy from the OCA’s Southwest Deanery of the Archdiocese of Western PA together to concelebrate the Divine Liturgy. Their Dean, Fr. Andrew P. Nelko (St. Nicholas Church, Weirton, WV), was joined by Fr. John Parker (St. Nicholas Church, Donora, PA), Fr. Stephan Gresh (Holy Resurrection Church, Belle Vernon, PA), Fr. John Kotalik (St. John the Baptist Church, Canonsburg, PA), and Dn. David Rostcheck (Nativity of the Virgin Mary Church, Monongahela, PA).  Fr. Andrew and the two Fr. Johns, are recent graduates of St. Tikhon’s seminary. Mother Christophora asked each of them to share something about their parish and their journey to the priesthood at the end of the Liturgy. They joined in for a joyful singing of our St. Herman’s hymn during the veneration of St. Herman’s relic and icon.
