1992-1994

1992 Auxiliary Facilities Host Services
In 1992, the administrative/classroom building was completed and church services were held in the south wing of the building.  The marble fixtures, including the liturgical altar, pulpit, baptismal font, and prayer stands (proskinitiria) as well as the murals and iconography from the Detroit church were transplanted into the new church.  

1994 Church Opening Door Ceremonies
Opening Door ceremonies for the church were held in 1994 with Bishop Timothy presiding.  The marble fixtures had been installed and an artist was hired to handle the touching-up and installation of the murals and iconography.  The iconostasis was subsequently installed and George Philipakis, an artist, was commissioned to paint new icons for the iconostasis.  Several months thereafter, the ground-breaking ceremonies for  Phase II, the building of the cultural center, were held.
