sending us a priest for liturgy
« on: December 30, 2004, 02:02:11 AM »
Glory be to Jesus Christ!

Please pray that the Antiochian Diocese will send us a priest to say Liturgy once a month in Hickory, North Carolina and that others may found out about us. Thank you and God Bless.

Love in Christ,
Philip

Many prayers, byzboy.

I have a sister in Aiken, SC. The last time I visited her I tried to go to the Orthodox mission there (Antiochian) -- I got lost and never found it, but that's another story. :o The interesting thing was, the mission held Divine Liturgy every Sunday at 4:00 p.m. If I remember correctly, their priest was assigned to another parish, up near Columbia, I think, and would serve there before heading down to Aiken in the afternoon.

Philip,

I hope you don't mind, but I passed your initial post onto my priest.  He is the dean for the OCA in NC and SC and regularly concelebrates with the Antichian priest in Anderson SC as well as having served Antiochian parishes in the past.  He may be able to motivate some of the Antiochian priests in the area to help.  I wouldn't expect a reply until next week though as he is out of town until the weekend. 

In Christ,

David

Prayers for your request.

Hey, that's awesome David!

Why does it take an OCA priest to motivate the Antiochians?  :D

Regardless, hopefully he will be able to help!

In Christ,

I'm sure it's not required, but every little bit helps.  Plus I like to instill a little pan-orthodoxy in the mix whenever possible. :)
