On Monday, October 1st, Bishop Michael will
celebrate a special Service of Thanksgiving (Molieben) marking the 60th

Hubiak. The service will take place at 1:00 p.m. at Saints Peter and
Paul Church, Jersey City NJ. A reception in the church hall will follow.
Father Daniel and his wife Matushka Evelyn
(known by all as Dunia) have served the Orthodox Church in America with
unwavering dedication and faithfulness in a number of capacities and parishes,
many of them in our diocese: Brooklyn NY (Transfiguration Church), East Meadow
NY (Holy Trinity Church), Saint Sergius Chapel (Syosset NY), Jersey City NJ
(Saints Peter and Paul Church), and presently on temporary assignment in Mays
Landing NJ (Church of the Mother of God).
Father Daniel was Chancellor of the Orthodox
Church in America for 15 years; he was a member of the official delegation sent
to Moscow to receive the Tomos of Autocephaly. Father Daniel and Matushka Dunia
also spent a number of years establishing and serving the OCA podvorye
