I have been blessed to be of the Orthodox faith since birth. My husband was baptized after we were married and our 2 children are “cradle” Orthodox. Since moving to Traverse City in 1977 I have been part of the church development witnessing the growth from infrequent services to what we have today. I was initially asked to fill a vacancy on the Parish Council. I have not regretted this decision. I now serve as Parish Council Secretary and I would like to continue my involvement in serving our parish and community.
