Yesterday, November 9, 2014, on the occasion of the celebration of the cathedral and eparchial feast day, in the Cathedral of Saint Josaphat in Parma, Ohio (USA) the newly ordained Ordinary of the Eparchy of St. Josaphat in Parma, Bishop Bohdan (Danylo) presided over his first Sunday Divine Liturgy since his enthronement on the eparchial see. Bishop Bohdan was joined in the Eucharistic celebration by Bishop John Bura, until recently the eparchy’s Apostolic Administrator. A large number of clergy, consecrated persons and the laity likewise partook in the Liturgy.

After the liturgy, a festive dinner with an artistic program took place in the eparchial Chancery’s banquet hall during which some representatives of the clergy and the laity welcomed, in a family atmosphere, Bishop Bohdan as their newly enthroned Eparch and thanked Bishop John for the many years of his fatherly sacrificial work for the good of the eparchy after which Bishop Bohdan and Bishop John addressed people with a word of thanks.

As we reported earlier, on November 4, 2014, in the Cathedral of Saint Josaphat in Parma, Ohio, the Head of the UGCC His Beatitude Sviatoslav Shevchuk presided over the consecration and enthronement of the newly elected Ordinary of the Eparchy of St. Josaphat in Parma, Bishop Bohdan Danylo, whose co-consecrators during the ordination were Bishop Paul Chomnycky, Eparch of Stamford and Bishop John Bura, until recently the eparchy’s Apostolic Administrator.
