This is just a quick post for the weekend to update our readers about some events locally and abroad. At the international level, many of you may already know that Patriarch Ignatius IV, Patriarch of Antioch, recently died in a hospital in Beirut. May his memory be eternal!
Locally, here at our parish, we had a wonderful St. Nicholas celebration. Larry Carcoana has provided us with some pictures he took and so I share a couple of them here: Both the chapel and the meeting room were full. The pictures from the meeting room were taken late in the evening, so some people had already left, but they show that conversations lingered on. Additionally, many conversations lingered on within the hallway/foyer area. A special thank you to all the visitors from Trinity Bible College in Ellendale, ND, as well as from the Roman Catholic Diocese of Fargo and Fargo-Moorhead more generally. Your presence was both an honor and a joy!
