Newly Ordained Priest in Columbus

Punctuating a weekend pastoral trip to Central Ohio, His Eminence ordained the then-Dn. Christopher Zaferes to the Holy Priesthood during the Divine Liturgy on Saturday, March 10 in Columbus.  Fr. Christopher, with Pres. Sophia, arrived at the Annunciation Cathedral in the fall to serve as the Pastoral Assistant & Youth Director in anticipation of his eventual ordination to serve as the assistant Pastor.  He is the son of Fr. Tom and Pres. Julie Zaferes, who serve in Oakland, CA, and was ordained to the Holy Deaconate on New Year’s Eve by Metropolitan Gerasimos of San Francisco. 


The prior day, His Eminence met with the area Clergy to discuss the life of the Cathedral, Metropolis, and Archdiocese, and in the evening presided over the Small Compline with the 3rd Stanza of Salutations to the Theotokos.  Following the service, he shared a Dinner with the members of the Parish Council to discuss the same topics with them.  On Sunday, March 11, His Eminence celebrated the Divine Liturgy and Elevation of the Holy Cross at the nearby community of Sts. Constantine and Helen in Mansfield, OH.
