On September 29, the Sunday after the Elevation of the Cross, Bishop Matthew of Sourozh, Interim Administrator of the Patriarchal Parishes in the USA & Canada, celebrated the Divine Liturgy in St. Nicholas Cathedral in New York City co-served by cathedral clergy, and Priest Dimitry Nedostupenko, Secretary of the Diocese of Sourozh, who is accompanying the bishop on his trip to the United States.
