Bishop Irenee visited St. John of Shanghai Orthodox Mission, Vancouver, BC

October 12, 2013

St. John of Shanghai Orthodox Mission was blessed to have Vladyka Irénée presiding "from the throne" (well, from the pew, in our case) at their Great Vespers service on Saturday, October 12th.

The service was followed by a communal meal and a lively Q&A session with His Grace, during which a wide variety of topics were raised and discussed, ranging from the health of the archdiocese to parish life to outreach to First Nations.

All who were able to make it out for the Thanksgiving weekend service were very thankful to have had the opportunity to pray and to chat with Vladyka and with our hard-working Protodeacon Nazari!
