Ascension

I arrived in Baltimore on the eve of the feast of the Ascension in 1993. My first Liturgy as a resident of Baltimore was at the Greek Orthodox Cathedral of the Annunciation.  This year I went to St. Nicholas Cathedral.  We had four deacons and two priests serving.

The vestments which I wore came from the cathedral.  The sticharion and cuffs were from Irakli, one of the altar servers there.  The orarion is from my parish.  Protodeacon Blagoje and I go back to 1982 when I returned to Washington DC from Texas and first started attending services at St. Luke Serbian Orthodox Church on Sixteenth Street.
