2012 Archdiocesan Yearbook Now Available Online
Jan 3, 2012
NEW YORK – The 2012 Yearbook of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America is now available online at yearbook.goarch.org. 2012 Yearbooks will be available by mail at the end of January 2012. Every parish will receive two complimentary copies.
In his letter to the faithful in this new yearbook Archbishop Demetrios of America states,
Beloved Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
As we begin this new year, with the blessings of our Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew in the service of our Lord Jesus Christ and His Holy Church, we give thanks to Him for His abiding presence with us. It is in Christ’s presence that we find the grace to transform our lives and restore our communion with God… For our ministries to touch and transform lives, for our offering and witness in this nation and our communities to bear fruit, every effort, action, and resource must reveal the presence Christ.
Our daily awareness of His presence and our commitment to bear fruit that brings honor and glory to God makes this Yearbook more than just a directory. It presents a very sacred work throughout the Archdiocese and our Metropolises, Parishes, Departments and Institutions where the abiding presence of Christ is bearing fruit in so many lives. In these pages, we are offered a glimpse of this growing witness of the Church, and we should be both encouraged and challenged by what we see.
In this new year of 2012, may we find renewed strength and abundant grace in our service to Christ. Each day let us seek to abide in Him through prayer, worship, and service, and as we live in His presence, may our lives be filled with great blessings and our offering to others lead them to His saving and unfailing love.
The 2012 Yearbook is designed as an easy-to-read, accurate, reference handbook of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America.
