Metropolitan Amfilokhi serves at the Cathedral

On the eve of the feast of the Entrance to the Temple of the Most Holy Theotokos, the Vigil service at the cathedral was officiated by His Grace, Metropolitan Amfilokhii of Montenegro accompanied by His Grace, Bishop Longin (Serbian Orthodox Church), His Grace, Bishop Peter, Protopriest Matthias (Georgian Orthodox Church)and the cathedral clergy as well as several visiting deacons.  The pontifical choir sang beautifully and was joined by several singers from the nearby Serbian cathedral.  At the conclusion of the Vigil service, Bishop Peter thanked His Grace for visiting and praying with us and commented that he has been an exemplary and staunch defender of the Orthodox faith in the Balkans and not long ago was widely considered the prime candidate to become the next Patriarch of Serbia.  He had also been Bishop Peter's instructor when the latter had studied years ago in Belgrade.  Following the Vigil, the clergy and visitors were invited for a light lenten reception.
