Holy Trinity Centennial

Our church is officially 100 years old. To celebrate, we did many things, including the pilgrimage to the Holy Lands. But on Bright Saturday, 4 May 2019, we had the big celebration with a Hierarchal Divine Liturgy presided over by His Grace Bishop Matthew.

Before the Liturgy Bishop Matthew tonsured four new readers and ordained three subdeacons.  At the Little Entrance he gave out awards to some of the priests and during the Liturgy he ordained to the holy diaconate Subdeacon Artemy Kulikovsky.  After the Liturgy we had a procession around the church, during which he unveiled a new street sign:  "Holy Trinity Way." 

The day was declared Holy Trinity Day by the City of Baltimore and we received citations from various political leaders.

After the Liturgy we had a fantastic banquet.  People are still talking about it.

We ended the day with a Bishop's Council meeting in the temple.  We worked on the future diocesan convocation. 

Shortly before the Liturgy Fr. Mark asked me if I had any single oraria here at the church since we needed them for the ordination to the subdiaconate.  Another deacon has borrowed vestments from me and he was returning them this morning.  So he went back to his car and got them.

I own two or three sets of vestments for most colors.  There are various reasons for this.  I keep one set at the church and one set at home.  There have been times when during the week I learn that I need to go to another church for service.  In that case, I just grab the set at home in the right color.  I do not have black nor burgundy at home, but I don't need a second set of either color.  I might get a second set of light weight black.

I also have extra sets because of misunderstanding.  I asked for dark red and received a red in a slightly darker shade, but it was still considered light red.  I asked for blue and got dark blue instead of light blue.  But I love it when somebody else is serving with me and wearing a set of my vestments.  I then say that I'm serving twice.  The person who got the vestments for me is also serving with me, as far as I'm concerned.
