has been friends with Vl. Alypy for as many years as I can remember,
since the days when I was in Chicago. The Serbian seminarians, and also
a Russian musical group that performs chamber music, all had known Vl.
Alypy before. The same applies to Bishop Job.
There was also a Roman Catholic bishop present, and a young priest who
accompanied him. They took no part in the services, but merely
attended them, along with the music program afterwards; they also went
to the dinner.
It's interesting to note that Vl. Alypy spoke to the gathering in
English; everyone else, so far as I recall, spoke Russian.
