During his first sermon as a hierarch, Bishop Michael spoke about mothers on the occasion of Mother’s day. His Grace reminded the congregation to thank their mothers and to remember them for teaching not only about “Elmo and Big Bird,” but about the church and the saints, and not only taking them to “piano lessons and soccer practice,” but to church and Sunday school.
Welcome, Bishop Michael! Eis polla eti, despota!
