St. Luke celebrates 5th anniversary of Fr. John and Popadija Kitty
On Sunday, July 27th, 2014, St Luke Orthodox Church in McLean held a celebration to mark Fr. John Vitko and Popadija Kitty's 5th anniversary at the parish. One of the many highlights of the day, was this "procession" at the end of the Liturgy of 12 or so of the young children in the parish, each bearing two roses -- one for Fr. John and one for Popadija Kitty. This video was 'shot' by their 11 year old granddaughter, Tatiana, on her cell phone.
