Archimandrite of the Ecumenical Throne Christoforos Oikonomidis, Chancellor of the Metropolis of New Jersey, also attended the meeting.

The Ecumenical Prayer Service for the 2023 Week of Prayer for Christian Unity will be hosted by GOARCH at the St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church and National Shrine tomorrow at 6:30 PM. The service will also be live-streamed here on Facebook and on Youtube (www.youtube.com/greekorthodoxchurch)

His Eminence Archbishop Elpidophoros of America will offer Words of Welcome and His Eminence Timothy Cardinal Dolan will offer the Homily.

This year’s Week of Prayer is particularly important for our American context. Its theme – “Do good; seek justice” (Isaiah 1:17) – was chosen and developed by the Minnesota Council of Churches. These words of the Prophet echo our responsibility – in the midst of our ecumenical quest for Christian unity – to condemn racism and hatred as a sin and to support the struggle for racial justice and equity.

The Ecumenical Prayer Service is an opportunity for leaders of all faiths to pray in a Church that will forever be bound to what it means to be an American: tolerant of different beliefs and respectful of other faith traditions and all people, while committed to a place for faith in the public square. Saint Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church is the only house of worship destroyed when the South Tower fell at the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001. On July 4, 2022, the rebuilt Saint Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church was Consecrated and is now open to the public. The re-building of this Church was an act of faith – faith in God and in the American vision of religious liberty.

The Clergy Families of the Archdiocesan District gathered with His Eminence Archbishop Elpidophoros of America for their annual Vasilopita dinner that was held at the Greek Orthodox Church of our Saviour in Rye, New York on Sunday evening, January 22, 2023.

When speaking to his clergy and their families, His Eminence said, “Being with you tonight is such an inspiring image both for the present and future of the Archdiocese. We have completed the first century, a great century but it was only the beginning. The success of the first century is because of you. I want you to be with me. Without you I cannot do anything. And when I say 'you', I am not only speaking to the priests but I am also speaking to the Presvyteres and your children. In fact I have to thank the presvyteres who are the heroes!”

The event was graciously underwritten by Archon Michael Psaros as his expression of thanks to the clergy for their support of the Saint Nicholas Shrine. It was attend by 90 clergy and Presvyteres along with 60 children.

Throughout the weekend, the youth showcased their talents and their love of their Hellenic Culture by offering performances featuring traditional dances from throughout mainland Greece and many Greek islands.

Saturday evening, the youth joined together in faith and fellowship at the Dinner Dance held at the parish, as the GOYAns from all the various parishes ate and danced together, creating lifelong friendships.

A record 3,000 participants gathered Jan. 13-16 at the Marriott Marquis in Downtown Atlanta to attend the 22nd annual Hellenic Dance Festival (HDF). The Metropolis of Atlanta-sponsored event hosted record numbers from across its Metropolis and beyond. Participants included 48 dance groups representing parishes from Florida, Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Colorado, Virginia, Illinois, Maryland, and Kansas. HDF also welcomed for the first time groups from New York and Nebraska. The weekend was highlighted by the attendance and participation of His Eminence Archbishop Elpidophoros of America, His Grace Bishop Sevastianos of Zela, Archdeacon Dionysios, Deacon Petros, and Archdiocese Youth Director Eva Konstantakos.

“This year’s weekend theme ‘Ascend’ was fitting as each year HDF has grown in numbers,” said Father Sampson Kasapakis, Hellenic Dance Festival Chairman. “Even with over 3000 participants this year, we have not and will not lose focus on what is important: our love for God and the passion for continuing and preserving our faith and cultural traditions.”

HDF is organized by an executive committee and a 14-person festival implementation team. The event aims to bring together Orthodox families through dance, music and fellowship to perpetuate the rich Hellenic Orthodox tradition. The weekend theme “ASCEND” was woven into spiritual workshops throughout the event. Attendees also participated in an HDF-wide service project. Through generous donations from individuals and parishes, they packed over 2023 health kits and toys for Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta.

In addition to full days of competition on Saturday and Sunday, attendees participated in an opening ceremony on Friday evening, with remarks and an Agiasmos by His Eminence Metropolitan Alexios. On Sunday morning, the entire Metropolis family gathered to celebrate a Hierarchical Divine Liturgy with His Eminence Archbishop Elpidophoros. The weekend culminated on Sunday evening with a red carpet themed awards ceremony, which was followed by socializing and dancing well into Monday morning. Live music for the Saturday and Sunday glendia were provided by folk musicians from across the U.S. as well as from Thessaloniki, Crete, and Ioannina, Greece.

The event was enhanced by a prestigious panel of dance and costume judges from the U.S. and Greece representing decades of Greek folk dance research and teaching. At Sunday’s awards banquet, medals were awarded for dance, choral performance, costumes and folk expression in each of eight competitive categories. Platinum (first place) medal winners included: Primary Category: Ta Manoussakia, Annunciation, Winston-Salem, North Carolina, Advanced Primary Category: Elliniki Psihi, Saints Constantine and Helen, Hampton Roads, Virginia, Junior Category: Asteria, Annunciation, Atlanta, Georgia, Advanced Junior Category: Oi Dopyoi, Annunciation, Winston-Salem, North Carolina, Intermediate Category: Ellinopoula, Saints Constantine and Helen, Hampton Roads, Virginia, Advanced Intermediate Category: Alhimeia, Holy Trinity, Charlotte, North Carolina, Senior Category: Afieroma, St. Elizabeth, Gainesville, Florida., Advanced Senior Category: Enosis, Saints Constantine and Helen, Hampton Roads, Va. The annual Metropolitan Alexios Philotimo Award was given to the parish of St. John the Baptist in Omaha, Nebraska.

The 2024 Hellenic Dance Festival will be held in Orlando, Florida. Interested in learning more about HDF? Visit www.HellenicDanceFestival.com.

ABOUT HDF

The Hellenic Dance Festival, based on the vision and dream of His Eminence Metropolitan Alexios, began in 2000. Traveling to various cities throughout the Greek Orthodox Metropolis of Atlanta, the Hellenic Dance Festival has grown into a true family event. Held annually on MLK Jr. weekend, it allows participants to join together as brothers and sisters in Christ. Our religion, our Greek language, and our culture help us maintain our identity as Hellenes. The need for our communities to perpetuate our culture, along with the philosophy of ancient Greece and the Olympic spirit of "a healthy mind in a healthy body" were instrumental in the vision of His Eminence Metropolitan Alexios to establish the Hellenic Dance Festival.

On the eve of the Investiture Ceremony of the University of South Carolina's new president, Dr. Michael Ameridis, His Eminence Archbishop Elpidophoros of America celebrated a Doxology Service at the Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church in Columbia, SC.

"What makes this Doxology of Thanksgiving to God so very special today, is that you – the Parish of the Holy Trinity – are welcoming back the Amiridis family into your midst, as Michael is officially invested with this prestigious role in the university that has become part of his family through the decades," His Eminence said. "You, the wider Greek Orthodox community of Columbia, are very blessed to have him once again in your company. And he and his family are blessed to have you as well."

Her Excellency Ambassador of Greece to the United States Alexandra Papadopoulou, as well as the parish's Rev. Presbyter Chrysostom Mitchell offered remarks for the occasion.

At the luncheon that followed, Dr. Ameridis addressed the community himself, joined by former USC President Dr. Harris Pastides, Philoptochos Society President Victoria Onufrik, Parish Council Vice President Lee Tsiantis, and parishioner Dr. Maria Kratsios.

The Investiture Ceremony will commence at 10:00 AM tomorrow, January 20, 2023.

Rev. Dr. Eugen J. Pentiuc featured on Trinitas TV!

Trinitas television, the only television station broadcasting 24/7 within the Orthodox world, and established under the initiative of Patriarch Daniel of the Romanian Orthodox Church, interviewed Rev. Dr. Eugen J. Pentiuc about Scripture in Orthodoxy. Fr. Pentiuc is the Archbishop Demetrios Professor of Biblical Studies and Christian Origins at Holy Cross. He recently published two works: Hearing the Scriptures and The Oxford Handbook of the Bible in Orthodox Christianity. The interview was broadcast live on TV, and now can be found on the Trinitas Youtube channel: https://youtu.be/otxsivu_Ls8. The segment, The Bible, the textbook of Christianity. Canon, Interpretation and Translations, was in Romanian, but the posted recording has English subtitles.

Through this cultural-religious television, that was established in 2007, the Romanian Patriarchate informs the public about church events, the pastoral-missionary, social, educational and cultural work of the Church.

For the first time since the pandemic, Camp Saint Paul hosted its annual Winter Camp at the St. Methodios Faith & Heritage Center on January 13th – 16th, 2023. With the loving spiritual guidance of His Eminence Archbishop Elpidophoros, Camp Saint Paul ministered to GOYANS across the District. Throughout the weekend, staff members and clergy present taught campers the importance and power of prayer in our everyday lives, especially when faced with struggles.

Thanks to the staff, campers took part in evening activities, including a night on Pat’s Peak, where they had a fun-filled time tubing. The ending of the Winter Camp experience found everyone united, arm in arm, as one family reminding campers that no matter what faces them, Christ will always have His loving arms open to them. As we close the chapter on this year’s winter camp, we look forward to a fruitful and blessed summer camp ministry.

Memorial Service and Tribute Held for Archbishop Iakovos of America

Brookline, MA – On Sunday, April 10, Hellenic College Holy Cross Greek Orthodox School of Theology commemorated the 17th anniversary of the falling asleep of Archbishop Iakovos of North and South America, with the blessing of His Eminence Archbishop Elpidophoros of America. The day began at sunrise in the Holy Cross Chapel, where His Grace Bishop Athenagoras of Nazianzos prepared the memorial table, in front of the icon of Christ, by surrounding Archbishop Iakovos’ photo with Bishop vestments to honor his service to the Church. Prayerfully made kollyva was offered for the repose of his soul and placed on top of the vestments. [see 📸 #3]

Representing Archbishop Elpidophoros of America, Bishop Athenagoras of Nazianzos presided over the Divine Liturgy, the Memorial Service, and the Trisagion at the grave of the ever-to-be remembered Archbishop Iakovos, with the melodic chanting of the students of the School that he so loved. His Grace Bishop Joachim of Amissos, Rev. Fr. Michael Kouremetis, Dean of Students, Deacon Dimitrios, and seminarians participated in the Liturgy and the Memorial.

The community then gathered at the Maliotis Cultural Center of Hellenic College Holy Cross for a reception. The tribute began with the blessings and greetings from Archbishop Elpidophoros of America, which Bishop Athenagoras of Nazianzos conveyed on his behalf. He expressed how it was a day of sorrow and a day of joy because Archbishop Iakovos worked in this vineyard and gave himself to the Church in America, and is now united with God....
