Whatever my good wife may think, I am definitely not the most photogenic deacon in the Russian Orthodox Church !!

Also at the altar:
Archbishop Simon; priests Antoni and Serge, deacons Alexander, Alexander and Vladimir, reader Viktor, altar boys Stansislaw, Daniel and Anton. (With me that makes 6 nationalities, it used to be 7, but our Bulgarian altarnik traded us for a monastery on Mount Athos...)

Here are my two favourite pictures of my ordination as deacon today. It was a happy occasion ... in the middle of a snowstorm. The bishop is Archbishop Simon of Brussels and Belgium. My particular thanks to my wife who coached my Russian and Slavonic into sufficient shape to use both today without too much damage, and to our two Protodeacon Alexanders for their guidance and patience.
