Archpriest Michael, Rector of Holy Transfiguration Church, retired from active ministry as 2018 drew to a close.  Father Michael and Matushka Lydia served Holy Transfiguration Church with dedication and love for 38 years!  The parish community hosted a celebratory luncheon on Nov. 11th.  These photos were taken during Fr. Michael's last Sunday Divine Liturgy as Rector, on December 30th. The parish is grateful that Protodeacon Paul Nimchek came to serve with Fr. Michael, from Sts. Cyril and Methodius Church in Terryville.

Fr. Michael will remain attached to Holy Transfiguration Church in retirement, and Mat. Lydia continues to serve as Choir Director and Church School Coordinator.
