Council of Oriental Orthodox Bishops meets in Burbank, CA
« on: May 12, 2011, 08:26:00 PM »
St. Ephraim Syriac Orthodox Cathedral in Burbank, CA was the site for a meeting of the Council of Oriental Orthodox Bishops.

From the article:
Quote
The day began with a prayer service led by Western Prelate Archbishop Moushegh Mardirossian, Archbishop Mor Clemis Eugene Kaplan, and Bishop Serapion, and with the participation of clergy from the three dioceses.

Very Rev. Fr. Muron Aznikian, Very Rev. Fr. Barthev Gulumian, and Rev. Fr. Razmig Khatchadourian also participated in the service and meeting.

La Crescenta?

St. Ephraim Syrian Orthodox Church is located at:
900 North Glenoaks Boulevard
Burbank, CA 91502

I have often driven by this very impressive cathedral.
The memory of God should be treasured in our hearts like the precious pearl mentioned in the Holy Gospel. Our life's goal should be to nurture and contemplate God always within, and never let it depart, for this steadfastness will drive demons away from us. - Paraphrased from St. Philotheus of Sinai

No problem. I just though that perhaps they had moved to La Crescenta right under my nose.

I know that they wanted to place a crypt in the Cathedral to bury their bishops, but the city of Burbank does not want to give them a permit.
