His Eminence, Bishop Gregory was welcomed to St. Stephen's for the tonsuring of Gilbert Hritz for reader of the diocese. Congratulations and many years to Gilbert!
St. Stephen's Orthodox Church is proud to welcome Gregory and Alexandria (top) and Avery Jane Thoma (bottom) into the Christian Faith.
The entire parish gathered together to catch a snapshot of our history.
The matching crosses were made and donated by Gilbert. The tree carving was done by David Urchek.
