Archdiocese Announces COVID-19 Relief Program

One-time grants of up to $2,500 will be made available to those who are facing extreme financial hardship as a result of COVID-19.

On June 23, the Orthodox Church commemorates the Sunday of All Saints, which honors the eternal memory of every man, woman, and child, throughout the ages, that “finished the race” having “fought the good fight” and received “the crown of righteousness” (2 Timothy 4:7–8). The list of saints includes names both known and unknown, a reminder of the high calling to holiness for each of us by our baptism and chrismation. Yes, we are ALL called to be saints! How is this possible? The Holy Tradition of the Church encourages us to look to the faithful example of the saints. We are inspired by their godly virtues and emulate them in ways that apply to our particular time, place, and capacity. We simultaneously follow a path to Christ that is both similar to others and unique to our circumstances.
