Pilgrimage Speakers 2019: Father David Anderson
And Joshua Mangels
We are happy to announce our 2019 Marian speakers.
Father David Anderson, is the pastor of St. Peter Eastern Catholic Church in Ukiah, California, a mission of the Ukrainian Catholic Eparchy of Saint Nicholas in Chicago.
Father David is a popular speaker on Eastern Christian theology and spirituality. In lieu of credentials we would like to quote from St. Peter's website: "One woman commuted 240 miles weekly from San Francisco for more than a year to worship God at St. Peter’s before moving to Ukiah to attend daily services. A couple drives with their four small children on weekends from Sacramento, a round-trip distance of 350 miles.
We remember Father David fondly from a recent pilgrimage at Holy Theophany Monastery just down the road from us and we feel privileged to have him at our own pilgrimage this year.
May the video on the left give you a foretaste of Father David's talk. This is one of a series of videos sponsored by St. Nicholas Ukrainian Greek Catholic Mission in Raleigh, NC.
We are happy to announce Joshua Mangels as our youth speaker this year.
Mangels is a former Protestant pastor who converted to Catholicism together with his wife and part of his congregation. He is now a member of St. Melanie Byzantine Catholic Church in Tuscon, Arizona.
