Let Freedom Ring...
This note from St. Gregory the Great Antiochian Orthodox Christian Church, Fr. Nicholas Alford:
Our Parish Life Conference this year will be hosted by St. George Cathedral in Charleston, WV, July 2-6. The conference will be held at the Embassy Suites Hotel inHow wonderful that the Western Rite will be celebrated at this event, for the entire diocese. It's an important step for Byzantine Orthodox to familiarize themselves with the existence and acceptance of the Western Rite, and it shows Bp. THOMAS's leadership in uniting all parts of his diocese. Thanks be to God.
Charleston, but all worship services will be held across the street in the Cathedral. Our bishops have again given their blessing for Western Rite Vespers to be offered at the conference; this year on July 4th. We should have as many people as possible present from our three Western Rite congregations to help lead Vespers. Please make plans now to be present.
