On Saturday, January 19/February 1, 2014, the Cathedral of St. Mark of Ephesus in Roslindale, MA, celebrated its feast day with a Hierarchical Divine Liturgy. Celebrating the Liturgy was His Grace, Bishop Demetrius of Boston, along with numerous clergy from the Diocese of Boston and Holy Ascension Monastery. Many faithful from both the United States and Canada were in attendance. Two days previous, Thursday, January 17/30, a clergy synaxis was held with the local New England clergy.
Many years to His Grace, Bishop Demetrius of Boston, and the clergy and faithful of the Cathedral of St. Mark of Ephesus!
