The parish of Saint Andrew celebrating their fiftieth anniversary

Celebrating our 50th Anniversary

July 1, 2016

On May 15, 2016, our parish celebrated the great milestone of our fiftieth anniversary. We welcomed many parishioners past and present, clergy and faithful from near and far, and were led in worship and celebration by His Eminence, Archbishop Michael of New York.

During the festive Hierarchical Liturgy, His Eminence ordained Fred Fetkowitz to the rank of Reader, in recognition of his many years of devoted service singing and chanting in the church. His Eminence also ordained Reader John Rusinak to the rank of Subdeacon, in recognition of his steadfast service assisting in the altar and supervising it as sacristan. His Eminence also awarded a Synodal Gramota (official citation) to the parish, which was accepted by founders Ginger Jerosh and Edna Fetkowitz. A festive celebration followed at the Smithtown Country Club.
