2017 Russian Festival - Sunday

The whole weekend has been wonderful. It was really a blessing to spend time with some of my close friends during the Russian Festival.  I also saw many people whom I knew from previous events.  Many I did not recognize and many only after they presented me with clues.

Our church is in need of renovation.  Many people were able to see the work done on the temple and some were fascinated by the gold leaf and other work being done.

Somebody asked me, "Who is that priest?" So I went over to meet him. He is training to become a Byzantine Rite Catholic priest.
