The First Hierarch of the Russian Church Abroad visits St Seraphim Camp in Pennsylvania
On Sunday, August 6, 2023, His Eminence Metropolitan Nicholas of Eastern America and New York paid an archpastoral visit to St Seraphim Camp in Blakeslee, PA, where he officiated the divine services and spent time interacting with campers.
Under the open air, His Eminence led all-night vigil on the evening prior, and on Sunday morning, celebrated Divine Liturgy, co-served by diocesan clergy.
Practically the entire camp confessed their sins the previous evening, and at Divine Liturgy received Christ’s Holy Mysteries.
Upon conclusion of Liturgy, Metropolitan Nicholas delivered a sermon on the Sunday Gospel reading.
His Eminence, the clergy, and campers gathered for a final meal together before returning to their respective parishes.
