Native son of St. Michael's returns as celebrant
MOUNT CARMEL - The Very Rev. Daniel D. Ressetar, pastor emeritus of Christ the Saviour Orthodox Church, Harrisburg, a retired U.S. Air Force chaplain and the former dean of the Frackville Deanery of the Orthodox Church in America, will be the guest celebrant of the Divine Liturgy at 9 a.m. Sunday at St. Michael's Orthodox Church, 131 N. Willow St.
He is a son of the Right Rev. Dimitri Ressetar, a native son of the parish, who read and sang at St. Michael's more than 100 years ago before he left to study for the priesthood. He will be accompanied by his grandson, Dimitri, who will assist in the altar and read the Epistle lesson.
Following the services, a half-hour educational session will be presented to help prepare the faithful for the upcoming Lenten period.
At the fellowship hour, light refreshments, including sandwiches, will be served. Everyone is invited.
