Title: Sunday of Orthodoxy Vespers
Post by: monkvasyl on February 16, 2010, 10:17:05 AM
Well, things still don't seem to be clear between the OCA and Metro Methodios, but our second deacon got tired of it and decided with the blessing of our priest to organize a pan-orthodox celebration at our church, St. Andrew's.  It will be at 5pm at: Saint Andrew The First Called Apostle, Ukrainian Orthodox Church of Boston, 24 Orchardhill Road, Jamaica Plain, MA 02130. 

Directions:
 
The church is just south of the Forest Hills MBTA station.
When traveling north or south on the Arborway, exit before the overpass and take the exit road to the lights.

When traveling south, turn left and then an immediate right, follow the road under the overpass Orchardhill Road is ahead - take a right onto it.

When traveling northbound, take a left onto Washington St and then another left towards Orchardhill Road.

With great amazement, the Chicago Sunday of Orthodoxy Vespers featured 8 hierarchs from the Chicago area including 2 heads of metropolis (Met. Christopher and Met. Iakovos). It was a good service and there were a large number of people as well as a large choir.

Boston had 86 people attending with 5 priests (4 serving), and 4 deacons.  In attendance were clergy from UOC of USA, OCA, Bulgarian, and Antiochian jurisdictions, and if I'm not mistaken, a couple from a Greek parish also attended.

Were you there?  I thought it was great to have members from all 4 Orthodox Churches in the area celebrate together!  Had some of my potato kibbee for lunch today.
