Following in his father's footsteps, a Utah man will be ordained Sunday to the priesthood of the Greek Orthodox Church.
Deacon Chrysostomos Gilbert, son of the Rev. Matthew Gilbert from Salt Lake City's Holy Trinity Cathedral, will be installed in New York City during a Hierarchical Divine Liturgy at the Annunciation Greek Orthodox Church.
After his ordination, Chrysostomos will replace the Rev. Archimandrite Nathanael Symeonides as the church's presiding priest.
The son, however, has chosen to remain celibate, unlike his Utah father, who is married with six children.
The Greek Orthodox Church views marriage and celibacy as equally valid ways to serve God.
