His Eminence Metropolitan Demetrius has been traveling a lot (by car), visiting parishes and parishioners.
On July 19/August 1, he served at the Church of Saint Seraphim of Sarov in Richmond, Virginia. After Vespers on the previous day, he gave a talk to the parishioners. After the festive meal on the feast day, he spoke again. In the evening of the same day, he traveled to Maryland to serve Vespers for the feast of the Holy Prophet Elias at Saint Nicholas Orthodox Church. The next day, he served Matins and Liturgy.
He returned to the monastery for less than a day, and then traveled to Independence, Ohio, where the Church of All Saints is located. From there, he traveled to Detroit, Michigan for the Grand Opening of the Church of Saint Irene of Chrysovalantou, and the ordination of Father Leonidas Pittos to the priesthood. His Eminence remained there for four days, daily serving the services for the feast days, concluding with the feast of Saint Irene of Chrysovalantou.
Please pray for our Metropolitan as he will continue to travel through the next two months.
