On Sunday, March 9, 2014, the Holy Transfiguration community traveled with their Bishop Alexander to Pella, Iowa, where the Vespers for the Sunday of Orthodoxy was held. The faithful were joined by a contingent from St. George Greek Orthodox Church in Des Moines, Iowa, and their priest, Fr. Basil Hickman, concelebrated with Bishop Alexander, Fr. Bartholomew (the rector of St. Nicholas in Pella) and Fr. Marty of Holy Transfiguration.
