With the blessing of Metropolitan Joseph, (Archbishop of New York and Metropolitan of all North America for the Antiochian Orthodox Christian Archdiocese of North America), Father Daniel Bethancourt and his wife Presbytera Maria and their two children Peter and Joanna visited us from June 3 to 10.
They serve the parish of Saint Nicholas Antiochian Orthodox Church in Shreveport, Louisiana.
Father Daniel served the Divine Liturgy for the feast of Ascension and on Sunday he celebrated together with Father Serafin. They visited the projects in zone 1 and travelled to Antigua for the day. It was a joy to have them here, especially since Presbytera Maria had been a former long term missionary years ago! Many years to this wonderful Orthodox family!
