Archbishop Elpidophoros Invocation – Paternal Exhortation - Benediction Executive Committee 33rd Annual Leadership 100 Conference

I am, of course, delighted to be with you again here at the annual Leadership 100 Conference – the thirty-third in the forty year history of this incredible organization. In fact, I would go so far as to say that the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America – as it stands today – would be unthinkable without Leadership 100. You have traveled with this Eparchy of the Ecumenical Throne for forty percent of its timeline, but you certainly count for more than forty percent of its life and progress.

ARCHPASTORAL EXHORTATION By His Eminence Archbishop Elpidophoros of America At the Metropolis of Denver Clergy-Laity Assembly and Philoptochos Convention

Beloved Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

 

I am so very pleased indeed to join you in Tulsa, for the Clergy-Laity Assembly of the Holy Metropolis of Denver. As all of you noticed, I did not address specifically your beloved Archpastor, His Eminence Metropolitan Isaiah of Denver.

He is currently at the Holy Archangels Monastery in Kendalia, Texas, having just celebrated his ninety-third birthday last month. Allow me a few moments to say something about your Metropolitan, and by beloved brother in Christ, in his absence. His Eminence has served you as both the last Bishop of your time as a Diocese, and your first Hierarch as a Metropolis.

The support of the Archons to my personal ministry and the greater ministry of our Holy Mother Church is deeply moving.
