Parish holds open house and auction of the „fruit of the vine“

Parish holds open house and auction of the „fruit of the vine“

On Sunday, July 13, St. Nicholas Parish had an open house to introduce their new priest and his family and to welcome parishioners into the newly renovated rectory. After the open house, the parish had an auction to sell the first bottles of wine from the vineyard the parish family started in 2003.

The day began with Divine Liturgy celebrated by Bishop John; the homily was given by Deacon Richard Plishka. The St. Nicholas choir sang the responses for the Liturgy. At the end of Liturgy Father Miron Kerul-Kmec, administrator, announced that the vineyard is to be named the Katie Seay Vineard. Seay passed away three days after the planting of the vineyard. She was only 16 years old and helped at the planting of the vineyard. Father Kerul-Kmec explained that the new life planted and now growing is her legacy.

After Liturgy, the parishioners toured the renovated rectory, hosted by Father Kerul-Kmec’s wife Marcela, and son Miron.

The parishioners then relocated to the church hall for small lunch before the auction began. The day concluded with an auctioneer (Bill Seay), dressed in bright yellow attire, starting the bidding on the vineyard’s first two wines: fousch and concord.
