+Dmitri Celebrates Final Liturgy as Ruling Hierarch

March 29, 2009

(Dallas, TX) His Eminence, Archbishop Dmitri celebrated his last Divine Liturgy as the ruling hierarch of the Diocese of the South March 29th at St. Seraphim Cathedral.

The Archbishop’s last liturgy had missionary implications as he ordained Theodore Brinegar to the Holy Diaconate. Deacon Theodore will be attached to St Justin Martyr Church in Jacksonville, FL. He will do missionary work in North Florida.

In a sign pointing toward the future, His Eminence stepped aside and let Deacon Theodore deliver the sermon on Sunday. During the sermon, His Eminence remarked, “I am glad that I let him preach, he is doing much better than I would have!”

Archpriest Ted Pisarchuk, rector of St. Justin was present at the ordination along with Deacon Theodore’s wife, Matushka Elizabeth and their two daughters.
