On Saturday April 28th, 2018, representatives of the Byzantine Catholic Seminary of Ss. Cyril & Methodius paid a visit to Saint Mary Byzantine Catholic Church in Bradenville, PA, where the Rev. Joseph Borodach is pastor. The Very Rev. Robert Pipta, Rector of the Seminary, was the main celebrant and homilist for the Divine Liturgy. Fr. Joseph was the concelebrant. The seminarians served, chanted the Apostolic Reading and assisted the cantor.
Following the Liturgy the parish family hosted the seminary community for a dinner. The seminarians and staff enjoyed a wide array of homemade dishes as well as some local favorites. It was a wonderful night full of great food, fellowship, and memories. The seminarians extend their deepest sense of gratitude for the hospitality and all the hard work that was done in order to make the parish visit a success.
