Lenten Archpastoral Visit to St. Anthony of the Desert Ukrainian Orthodox Mission in NM!
It has become a pious tradition for the faithful of St. Anthony of the Desert Ukrainian Orthodox Mission community in Las Cruces, NM to welcome into their midst their spiritual father and Eparchial Archpastor His Grace Bishop Daniel.
As in the past, the bishop arrived a day earlier, on Friday April 1, 2011, in order to familiarize himself with the daily life of the mission as well as to meet with individual parishioners and to provide guidance and support for the ministry of the mission family that continues to grow rapidly.
Rev. Fr. Gabriel Rochelle, pastor of the mission community, welcomed the hierarch on behalf of the faithful with words of love and a request for constant intercession by the spiritual father of the Eparchy for the ministry of St. Anthony of the Desert Mission.
