Visit of His Eminence Archbishop Demetrios of America
On Friday May 11, His Eminence Demetrios, Geron of America, arrived in California for his historic visit to the Vicariate for Palestinian/Jordanian Orthodox Christian Communities in the US. Over the busy weekend, he met with Vicariate clergy, visited three Vicariate parishes, including Saint Lawrence. His Eminence was welcomed outside the church with ringing bells and close to two hundred parishioners. He served a short Doxology service in the church and then toured the St. Lawrence Academy classrooms where he blessed the students and staff before attending a luncheon with the clergy and parishioners.
The weekend culminated with the Door Opening ceremony and hierarchical liturgy at St. George Cathedral in Daly City.
