On the weekend of October 9-12, faithful from across the Metropolis gathered with their bishop, His Eminence Metropolitan Pavlos, to celebrate the Clergy-Laity Conference, which occurs every five years. The annual Youth Conference was also held, as well as the Philoptochos Conference, allowing families to come together and offer their diverse talents, fellowship, and ultimately chart the course for the future direction of our Holy Metropolis. In addition to His Grace Bishop Christodoulos, we were joined by three bishops from Greece: H.E. Metropolitan Chrysostomos of Attica and Boiotia, H.G. Bishop Gregory of Christianoupolis, and H.G. Bishop Photios of Marathon. The website staff would like to thank the New York Committee and all involved in making this conference a great success.

Saints Peter and Paul Orthodox Church is a beautiful mission parish near downtown Tucson, a city in southern Arizona.

Father John served the faithful in Tucson and the surrounding area in his home Chapel until his repose in November of 2000. His wife, Presbytera Valerie, continued to make her home Chapel available for the mission, with clergy from Saint Nectarios Orthodox Church in Seattle and His Eminence, Metropolitan Moses of Toronto (then of Portland), visiting to provide the Divine Services.Read more...
