The Washing of Feet

As Deacon Michael Waak began the Gospel, Metropolitan-Archbishop Stefan Soroka took off his vestments, put on a towel and began to wash the feet of the 12 Priests from the left to the right, and then dried them with a towel.

The apostle Simon Peter was represented by Rev. Ivan Demkiv, Cathedral Rector. Peter stood and said, "Lord, don't wash just my feet. Wash my hands and my head." The Archbishop said, "People who have bathed and are clean all over need to wash just their feet. And you, my disciples, are clean, except for one of you."
