Bp. MARK Pays a Surprise Visit to a Western Rite Parish
Fr. John W. Fenton, priest at Holy Incarnation Orthodox Church (AWRV) in Detroit, notes that His Grace Bishop MARK of Toledo dropped in for a surprise visit to his parish this past Sunday:
When he entered at the beginning of Lauds, His Grace was greeted with the chant Sacerdos et Pontifex. The Bishop presided from the bishop's throne during Lauds and Mass. At appropriate times during the Mass, His Grace blessed the thurible and sang "Peace be with you." At the end of the Mass His Grace gave the pontifical blessing and then was once again serenaded with Sacerdos et Pontifex during the retiring procession.You'll recall Sayedna MARK also recently presided over a retreat at St. Mark's Orthodox Church (AWRV) in Denver. Eis polla eti Despota!
