An Orthodox conference was recently sponsored by our Toronto parishes with the topic: "Enduring in the Faith."
The Conference, held October 7 - 10, was led by Metropolitan Chrysostom of Attica, Metropolitan Pavlos of America, Metropolitan Moses of Portland, Bishop Photios of Marathon, and Bishop Christodoulos of Theoupolis. There were two sessions made up of talks and question periods in Greek and English. The Sunday Divine Liturgy was held at St. Nektarios Church during which the five hierarchs and nine presbyters served.
For audio of the talks, and in some cases transcripts, please see:
Saints Peter and Paul Orthodox Church is a beautiful mission parish near downtown Tucson, a city in southern Arizona. It was started in 1997 by Father John Bockman, who was a missionary Priest formerly serving missions in Tennessee and Massachusetts since 1990. 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...
