Sacristan Sub Deacon John Segvich.

Name:Deacon John Segvich
Job:Sacristan
Email: djsegvich@stlukeorthodox.com

Serving as sacristan is a wonderful way to fulfill the vital mission of the subdiaconate. Subdeacons are ordained to serve in Christ’s Holy Church. I try to ensure that Fr. Andrew and Pdn. Andrew are able to celebrate the divine services with everything in its proper place, minimal distractions and in an atmosphere of prayer and peace.

In the ordination prayer for the subdiaconate, the bishop asks God to grant that the subdeacon will:

“…love the beauty of Your house, standing before the doors of Your holy temple, and lighting the lamps of the dwelling place of Your glory. Plant him in Your holy Church like a fruitful olive tree bringing forth the fruits of righteousness.” To this end, I strive to cherish the church in all its beauty, keep the lamps lit and endure like the olive tree planted in the garden of the Lord. Glory to God for all things!
