I think I remember seeing the priest in ACROD newspapers from the past.
ACROD has 4 Belarusian parishes, but no Bulgarian ones - which doesn't preclude Father having been in attendance at some liturgical or social event, given that he's of a Church in communion. Perhaps Father David or DMD know of him.
What is the history of the "Macedonian-Bulgarian" Church? It's an odd, but interesting title.
Michael, my friend,
Historically, there was a significant ethnic Bulgarian population in Macedonia. How those persons have self-identified has changed several times over the centuries.
From doing some research for our directory entries on the Byzantine Bulgarian Catholic Church, I know that Byzantine Bulgarians were formerly well-represented in bordering areas of Macedonia, although those temples have all since been repressed. I presume that the Bulgarian Orthodox Church was also well-represented there at the time.
As to the particulars though of the terminology Macedonian-Bulgarian Orthodox Church, it doesn't represent a separate church within or outside the Orthodox communion. Instead, it's (for lack of a better way to describe it) an ethno-cultural subset of parishes within the Bulgarian Eastern Orthodox Diocese of the US, Canada, & Australia.
Other than Holy Annunciation, there are four other such parishes in the diocese: St Cyril & Methodii M-B EO Cathedral, Holy Trinity M-B EO Church, and St George M-B EO Church, all in Toronto; and, St Clement Ohridski M-B EO Church, in Dearborn, MI.
The Bulgarian Diocese of the OCA also has at least one parish that was officially incorporated under that same styling: St Ilia M-B EO Church, Akron, OH.
Holy Ghost in Youngstown, OH (OCA) uses 'Macedonian Orthodox' in its titling - without the added 'Bulgarian' descriptor. St Nicholas in Fort Wayne, IN, (OCA) was Macedonian in its inception, although I don't know that it ever was titled as such. There are other parishes in the OCA Bulgarian Diocese which reference both Bulgarians and Macedonians among their faithful, but none that seem to be predominated by the latter.
I'm not sure if any of the temples in the US-Canadian Diocese of the Macedonian Orthodox Church use the dual titling.
May there someday be a special place in Heaven for Very Rev. Archpriest Michael Slovesko. According to the article he came out of retirement to try to keep the parish viable. That is the kind of love that we need throughout all Christian Churches, eastern and western.
Amen to that, Deacon Paul.
