As you may have heard, there are some administrative changes coming at St. Nicholas Church in Stratford. Beginning in August, there will be a new rector: Archpriest Dimitri Jakimowicz, who is currently in the process of moving with his family from St. Louis, Missouri. This change comes at the direction of our Bishop, Metropolitan Hilarion, with the support of the parish's elected leadership. Please come and help welcome Fr. Dimitri to Stratford on Sunday, August 5!
The church's current rector, Archpriest George Lardas, will be attached to our sister church, St. Nicholas in Enfield. We thank Fr. George for his eighteen years of service in Stratford, and we shall host a farewell party on Sunday, July 29. Please look for a separate announcement soon.
As some things change, others remain the same, and as St. Nicholas Church prepares to celebrate its Ninetieth Anniversary in 2019, the parish council thanks everyone who continues to support this community. Спаси Господи! If you have questions, feel free to contact the Starosta, Leo "Dexter" Peavy, at: email@example.com.
