Fall 2015 Deanery Meeting of CSD - 10/07/15
The Central States Deanery of the Moscow Patriarchal Parishes held its Fall meeting of the Deanery clergy on October 6th and 7th at St. Innocent of Irkutsk Orthodox Church in Redford, MI, of which the Dean, Mitered Archpriest Roman Star, is Pastor. Six priests, 1 deacon and 1 subdeacon attended. As is the custom at each of the twice annual Deanery meetings, Vespers was served on the first evening, and the Divine Liturgy was celebrated on the morning of the second day, with all the clergy concelebrating. These annual Spring and Fall Deanery meetings are very beneficial and productive for the clergy, providing opportunities for spiritual and social fellowship with their brother clergy, to share with each other what is going on in the life of their parishes, to discuss parish concerns, to learn about various issues and to exchange ideas. The Dean always chooses relevant topics to explore, and some pertinent DVD/video to be viewed. As usual, the host parish provided dinner, lunch, snacks and beverages.
