Pictured in the photo are Archbishop Vladimir and the Clergy of the Church of St. Seraphim of Sarov, Montreal.
A week after the Nativity in the Church of St. Seraphim of Sarov in the Synodal Compound Montreal, Canada, Archbishop Vladimir ordained monk Vitaly as Deacon. Father Vitaly has pursued asceticism at the Holy Transfiguration Skete, fulfilling obediences in the choir and in various other works. Now to his other obediences has been added the high calling of service at the throne of God. May Fr. Vitaly faithfully serve the Lord in holy orders for many years!
