In Amarillo, Texas, the parish of St. John's Church
is celebrating the onset of Holy Week. Fr. David Eckley, protopresbyter, spoke of the deep roots of the Orthodox faith.
From the article:
“Because we’re Orthodox, we’re worldwide and we’re one of the original churches,” said David Eckley, protopresbyter (priest) of St. John’s Eastern Orthodox Church. “We are the original church in the sense that it’s from the apostles that we were formed, Pentecostal.”
