I heard that Bishop Pataki is retired? Is this true?

I am going to miss Bishop Andrew Pataki. I really liked him. He gave some really good homilies.

I met Fr. Dino briefly about a year ago while doing some research on St. George's parish in Linden. He was a very nice and helpful Priest. I think Van Nuys got a good one there.

I have also heard that Fr. Gerald is a great priest. A fellow parishioner here at St. John Chrysostom (Seattle) has a relative in his current parish and has met him. By the way, is his last name pronounced DEE-NO or DIE-NO?

I'm not sure. I said DEE-NO when I met him and was not corrected, but sometimes that gets a pass. I attended the liturgical vespers there as well. It was a well attended service and there was a choir singing the responses. The church building was, shall we say, Unique.

If someone tells me how to do it I'll try to get and download some pictures.

Glory to Jesus Christ
Hawk, I believe the term is ordained.
Actually, the ordination of a bishop is a magnificent event. I would recommend all who could attend on March 27 be there.
The date in 2008 is Bright Thursday.
Additionally, the installation of a bishop in a new eparchy is referred to as an enthronement.

I can only hope that the new bishop is more attentive to our church than Pataki.

Bishop William has been our bishop for three years now (or about that, I don't remember exactly). He is young and can keep up a busy schedule. The Van Nuys Eparchy contains New Mexico, Arizona, Nevada, Utah, Montana, Idaho, Washington, Oregon, California, Hawiaii, and Alaska. Talk about geographic diversity! I've had the pleasure of meeting him several times when he visited our parish in Seattle and at the annual Pilgrimage to the Shrine of our Lady of Perpetual Help in Olympia. He will probably welcome a smaller (geographically) epachy--though certainly larger in number of churches and people.

Is the west coast larger than the east coast???

Of course not. At least the coast itself, but by the time you add Alaska and Hawiaii and the distances necessary to travel in between, it does add up. Most of our parishes are somewhat distant from each other as well.

Hey! We're the new kids on the block out here for the most part. That's something for a 1300-year-old church. (I'm thinking of the conversion of the Slavs as the beginning date for Ruthenians. I realize other dates are also valid.)
