Clergy at Holy Myrrhbearers
Priest Gabriel Weller
Father Gabriel Weller our Priest was ordained by Bishop GEORGE with the blessing of His Eminence Metropolitan HILARION. Father Gabriel was born here in the Shenandoah Valley. He spent many of his early years in Va. Beach but returned to the Valley in 1979. After many failures in life, He gave his life to the Lord and became very active in the protestant church. He had been a church leader in the United Church of Christ and the Methodist Church since his late twenties, serving in many capacities including Deacon, Elder, Church President, Youth Pastor and also served as Certified Lay Speaker, Choir Member and Youth Leader. He attended Seminary at Eastern Mennonite University with the encouragement of his pastor, but before completing his studies became frustrated with a growing perception of liberalism and other issues in the Protestant Churches he had known. He encountered Orthodox Christianity through his wife and her brother, Archpriest John Moses. He came to realize he could not go back to Protestantism because of the lack of True worship. He has served in the Altar continuously since his baptism, and was the Warden of All Saints of North America for two years. He was ordained to the Diaconate by Bishop Gabriel in 2007, and he was ordained to the Priesthood in 2009. He was the first regular pastor of the Holy Myrrhbearers 'Mission' in 2012 and on October 12, 2013, he was appointed Rector of the parish. His wife is Matushka Tatiana.
Archpriest John Moses
Father John founded the former All Saints of North American Russia Orthodox Church in nearby Middlebrook. Father John led the All Saints congregation into a single, combined church (no longer a 'mission'). On October 12, 2013. He continues to assist when needed at Holy Myrrhbearers.
