2021 Parish Council
From 1985 to 2006, St. Raphael's had guest priests serve our parish. Thank you V. Rev. Fr. Philip Reese; V. Rev. Fr. Raphael Rozdilski (Blessed Memory); V. Rev. Fr. Mark Stevens and V. Rev. Fr. George Breyan (Blessed Memory)
2006-2014: Fr. David Balmer was our first resident priest. He with Matushka Mary blessed us with an enriched service schedule, choir direction, bible classes and hospital visits. Many converts to Orthodoxy were attracted to the church.
During their tenure a twice-a-month mission called "Vespers in The Villages" was arranged to be held at St. George Episcopal Church in The Villages, FL. Fr. David co-sponored "The Blessing of the Golf Cartrs" in the The Villages, and Epiphany throwing of the cross at Lake Hernando.
Fr. David and Mat. Mary retired to Arizona in 2014 to improve her health and to be near their son, We thank you both for your many years of wonderful service.
