Metropolis of Atlanta Annual Archangel Michaels Honors
The presence of the COVID-19 Delta variant in the Southeastern United States has caused the Metropolis of Atlanta to recognize that the Annual Archangel Michael Honors Weekend is still potentially unsafe. However, the Metropolis does not wish to leave our 2020 & 2021 honorees unacknowledged.
Instead, His Eminence Metropolitan Alexios is excited to celebrate the honorees by designating November 7th, 2021--the day before the Feast of the Archangels--as Archangel Michael Honoree Sunday. The Metropolis will mail to our clergy both the honoree Certificates of Recognition and Archangel Michael Medals on October 25th. Upon the conclusion of the Divine Liturgy on Sunday November 7th, the clergy will bestow the Medal upon the neck of each honoree and hand them their Certificate, congratulating them on behalf of the Metropolitan. The Metropolis hopes that each parish will offer a coffee fellowship for the honorees. Following the day's events, we welcome commemorative photos for the Metropolis website.
Also on that Sunday, the first ever online commemorative booklet will be posted on the Metropolis website (in lieu of the printed book received during the banquet) Links shall be given to each parish to promote in their Sunday Bulletins, newsletters, and on their own websites.
