I have been the pastor of St Herman’s church in Langley, BC, since the parish began under the OCA in 1987. We have weathered many challenges and continued to grow, and many men who are now clergy began as catechumens at St Herman’s. My ministry of writing (currently totalling 25 books and well over 400 blog posts) was made possible because of the parish’s support.
