Fr. Frank Miloro distributing paskas to parishioners. The giving of the "little paskas" was instituted by the late +Metropolitan Nicholas many years ago. They were his gift to the parishioners. He had already ordered them from the Potomac parish, as he always did, and they were delivered to Johnstown in February where they were kept frozen until today. This was the last gift to the parishioners from + Metropolitan Nicholas. We all missed him and today you could feel his absence. May his memory be eternal! Christ Is Risen!
