Metropolitan JOSEPH became the first metropolitan of the Antiochian Archdiocese of North America to visit St. Herman Church in Wasilla. During his visithe met with the parish council, chrismated Becky Moore, and blessed Fr. Matthew Howell with the shield, allowing him to hear confessions. At the end of liturgy, the parish presented Metropolitan JOSEPH with an original local icon of St. Herman of Alaska that includes an image of our church temple. Father John Rogers from St. John Cathedral in Eagle River also accompanied Sayidna JOSEPH.
