The local Romanian Orthodox priest and the Metropolitan of the Americas received formal recognition from city officials in Las Vegas, Nevada, this week.

His Eminence Metropolitan Nicolae and Fr. Mihail Balan, rector of the Church of St. George and St. Dimitrie the New, received certificates of gratitude from the city for their efforts for the benefit of the Romanian Orthodox community in the city, reports the Basilica News Agency.
