Fr. Samuel and his wife Presbytera Sophia (Kristal) are converts to Orthodoxy and have been members of the Avlona Synod since July of 2016. In addition to his responsibilities at Holy Entrance, Fr. Samuel cares for the spiritual welfare of parishoners of Saint John Maximovitch Orthodox Church in Medina, Ohio. Fr. Samuel is eager to be engaged with the Columbus Community more now that Covid restrictions have been lifted. As a parish, the community shares its its time, talent, and limited treasure with established service programs in the community who serve those in need.
