Travel will usually be accomplished by going in a church vehicle and a driver will normally be provided; however, this missionary should slowly develop the ability to travel more independently when necessary.

St. Spyridon Greek Orthodox Church in Washington Heights, New York (NY) is looking for a chanter  available for weekday services and sacrements.
