His Eminence Archbishop Michael visited St Basil's Orthodox Church in Maplewood, NY for Vespers on December 31, 2016 and for the Hierarchal Divine Liturgy of St. Basil the Great on January 1, 2017.  The parish Feast Day celebration included the blessing and cutting of the Vasilopita (St. Basil's bread).   A pot-luck and a question-and-answer period with the children and the Archbishop was held in the Church Center immediately following the Divine Liturgy.
