Pray for the Christians of Iraq and Syria.

I got this from an e-mailed newsletter, so I don't have a link.  If I find a link, I'll post it:


The Standing Conference of Oriental Orthodox Churches in America met at St. Leon Armenian Church of Fair Lawn, NJ, on Wednesday, October 21. Members presented updates on programs at their respective churches and spoke about the need to recruit young men to serve as priests.

Participants also discussed inter-church relations, with Archbishop Khajag Barsamian speaking about this year’s prayer service and luncheon hosted at the Eastern Diocese in honor of Archbishop Timothy Dolan, the Roman Catholic Archbishop of New York, and Metropolitan Jonah Pauffhausen, the Orthodox Church in America's Archbishop of Washington and New York, and Metropolitan of All America and Canada.

In addition, church leaders said they would like to encourage cooperation among youth directors of the respective churches – an idea that was first reviewed at a September meeting of the Joint Commission of the Standing Conference of the Oriental Orthodox Churches and the Standing Conference of Canonical Bishops in the Americas. At that meeting, youth directors had an opportunity to learn about programs at each of the churches and to speak about ways in which they can assist each other in their work.

The Standing Conference of Oriental Orthodox Churches of America includes representatives of the Armenian, Coptic, Ethiopian, and Syrian Orthodox Churches. In addition to Archbishop Barsamian, the Very. Rev. Fr. Daniel Findikyan, Very Rev. Fr. Haigazoun Najarian, Rev. Fr. Diran Bohajian, and Rev. Fr. Tateos Abdalian represented the Armenian Church at Wednesday’s meeting.

I wish they would get a website up already.  Sad

I stopped posting here in August 2011 because of stark disagreement with the policies of the administration and moderating team of the forums. If you desire, feel free to PM me, message me on Facebook (link in profile), or email me: cddombrowski@gmail.com
