Okay, so I REALLY want to get this to work. So how about May 25-27, 2008. The 28th would be Memorial Day which would be a day of No School for the little ones and for hopefully most of you a day of no work (I know I get it off). Hence, anyone who wanted to travel on Sunday afternoon/evening would be able to relax when they got back to whever they're going. Also, it would hopefully let people like Anastasios and such to be able to attend. I'm still willing to coordinate this, but like last time, if its only going to be 2 or 3 people, its not going to work. We need the cooperation of as many people as we can get. Also, please let me know who in the Chicagoland area you would be interested in hearing speak and I can do my best to arrange a discussion with them. Some noted people in the area include:
Archbishop Job, OCA
Metropolitan Iakovos, GOA
Fr. Patrick Reardon, AOCA
Metropolitan Christopher, Serb.
Fr. John Matusiak, OCA
Dr. Helen Theodoropolis, GOA
Fr. Simeon Johnson, GOA
General OC discussion
Current Issues (e.g. capital punishment, abortion, etc.)
Improvements in jurisdictional relationships
If anyone has any suggestions, please feel free to let me know and I can check into what I can do for you. Also, if anyone in the area could lend a hand to help coordinate all this (especially talking with priests/bishops from your diocese) that would help out tremendously.
Please let me know your thoughts and concerns and lets see if we can't accomplish something.
