Informal Reception by the Members of the Greek Russian Church.

Bishop Nicholas of the Greek Russian Orthodox Eastern Church was tendered a reception in the parish house yesterday afternoon by the members of his congregation, to whom he has recently returned after a seven month’s journey in the East and in Russia.

The affair was entirely informal, the church members merely calling to congratulate the reverend gentleman upon his safe return and to receive from his lips news of their native land. There will be no special service in honor of the Bishop’s return, but next Tuesday morning the annual holiday service will be commenced.
