Archbishop Peter Visits Ann Arbor Parish 
30/8/22, 12:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory


On Friday and Saturday, August 26 and 27, His Eminence Archbishop Peter visited the St. Vladimir parish in Ann Arbor. During his visit His Eminence ordained Subdeacon Dmitri Mihaliov a Deacon for service to the Ann Arbor community. Also, His Eminence revealed a new icon of St. Mardarije, commissioned by the parish’s Ann Arbor Orthodox Classical Academy. The icon depicts the saint, who went to his eternal reward while a patient at the University of Michigan Hospital, studying in his library. This is a unique, but not completely unknown, iconographic depiction, and the first of its kind of St. Mardarije, the patron saint of the school. At the Divine Liturgy on this day Priest Joseph Towne, cleric of the Sts. Sergius & Herman of Valaam Monastery in Houghton was awarded the right to wear the Nabedrinik and Skufia. Pictures of the visit can be found at the link below:
