Orthodox Conference Held in Toronto

An Orthodox conference was recently sponsored by our Toronto parishes with the topic: "Enduring in the Faith."

The Conference, held October 7 - 10, was led by Metropolitan Chrysostom of Attica, Metropolitan Pavlos of America, Metropolitan Moses of Portland, Bishop Photios of Marathon, and Bishop Christodoulos of Theoupolis. There were two sessions made up of talks and question periods in Greek and English. The Sunday Divine Liturgy was held at St. Nektarios Church during which the five hierarchs and nine presbyters served.
