An Appeal from the Eparchial Synod for the St. John of Damascus Orthodox Educational Initiative

Beloved Christians,

The Saint John of Damascus Orthodox Educational Initiative serves families in North America, England and Eastern Europe.

This video appeal directed towards the Christians throughout these regions and is over an hour long. The video begins with a very brief introduction by the Headmaster, followed by a sermon by me concerning the challenges that Modernism and Humanism bring to bear against Christians. The sermon features the teachings of Archbishop Andrew of Rockland on the “The Resoration Of The Orthodox Way Of Life.” This is followed by information about the Saint John’s Initiative and the Appeal for the upcoming school year.

Please share the link above with parents who you think will be helped by this information.

Thank you.

In Christ,

+Moses, of Toronto
Hierarchical Overseer of the St John’s Initiative appointed by the Holy Eparchial Synod
