A Day of Prayer and Fasting
His Eminence, our Archbishop DMITRI, has declared today a day of prayer and fasting throughout the Diocese of the South. Please remember the Holy Synod of Bishops and the Metropolitan Council of the Orthodox Church in America as they gather this week for a joint meeting at the Chancery in New York.

Also remember the Centurion Longinus, who was present at the foot of the Cross to witness our Lord's Crucifixion and declared, "Truly this was the Son of God." (Matthew 27:54). He became a bold proclaimer of the Gospel, eventually dying as a Martyr in his native Cappadocia.
