That is not just a small local parish, that is the seat of the Ethiopian Patriarchal Synod in Exile which covers the entirety of North America and several parishes in Africa and Europe Wink

I also know several of the people in those photographs.. our local parish has also made the LA Times a few times in the past few years, folks seem to be getting increasingly curious about who the Ethiopians are in America, and I for one think its a great improvement

stay blessed,

Habte-

That would explain why there are so many Ethiopian refugees coming to the area.

Wonderful! The photo of the two young boys sleeping reminded me of our Pascha here at St. Bishoy COC. One of the families has two little boys (maybe 5 or 6 years old), and they slept through much of the night service leading up to the resurrection, but the older of the two woke up a few times before the re-enactment and would tug at his mother's dress to ask her what was going on. "Mama, is it time for Jesus to come up yet?" "Not yet. In a little while."  Smiley Smiley

Yes at the Epiphany in 2011 I was having lunch in the clergy tent with several bishops, priests and deacons, a few from Seattle including my friends.  In a polite conversation a priest brought up NFL football and concurrently was the Seattle Seahawks rare play-off appearance.  I snuck out my phone and began to check the score to tell this priest the update.  When I did I was suddenly swarmed by many priests and deacons, and I was very nervous because I thought I may have been in trouble for the faux pas of playing with my phone in those circumstances.  Instead, they were all trying to see the Seahawks score! I had no idea that Ethiopian clergy were such big fans of NFL, but especially those from Seattle are very into their football Wink

Kristos tenestwal :-)! Beautiful article! St. Gabriel's is prominent within the Synod in Exile, but it is not the seat of Patriarch Abune Merqoriyos - if I'm not mistaken the patriarch lives down in the San Francisco area. Seattle is the seat of Archbishop Abune Luqas, a member of the Synod in Exile.
