At the end of the celebration His Eminence delivered a spiritual sermon on the importance of excelling in the service of Church and strengthening their dedication to their faith. He also instructed the newly ordained to take their ministry very seriously and conduct themselves in a way that fits their calling and brings glory to God’s Name.

Following the Divine Liturgy all parishioners and visitors congratulated the newly ordained Deacons.
