The following video was uploaded from Youtube. This was the wedding jubilarian Hierarchical Divine Liturgy on the Sunday After the Exaltation of the Cross in 2006, explaining why the clergy was wearing red vestments. The celebrant was Bishop Andrew Pataki of the Eparchy of Passaic. Bishop Andrew of blessed memory, was my ordaining prelate, and i eventually became part of his curia as his finance officer.
I am one of the candle-bearers for Bishop Andrew, standing to his right as he enters the church. I was just beginning my journey in the liturgical world. I did not write this service, but I add this page to show how I was trained. Admittedly, I had more and darker hair then….. Bishop Andrew took me under his wing, and trained me as liturgist. Incidentally, the tall fellow in the picture is my father!
