Protodeacon Peter Elevation

This morning, Archbishop Melchisedek elevated Deacon Peter to the rank of Protodeacon.

At its most recent meeting this past week, the Holy Synod of Bishops of our Orthodox Church in America approved Protodeacon Peter's elevation in recognition of his service to our national church. In addition to his duties here at Holy Ghost, the Archdiocese, and his fulltime secular job, he serves as Executive Secretary and Deacon to His Beatitude, Metropolitan Tikhon. He is also the Council Manager of the All-American Council. Prior to settling in our parish he served as subdeacon and aide to Metropolitan Herman, of blessed memory.

May God grant Protodeacon Peter many years as he continues to serve Christ's vineyard.

Christ is risen! Indeed He is risen!
