It is with great thanks to our Lord Jesus Christ that over 200 faithful participated in this year's Youth and Family Conference at Saint Mark of Ephesus in Westwood, Mass. Many came from Toronto, Oregon, New York, Pennsylvania, Maryland, New Hampshire, Maine, and Missouri to share in our brotherhood and unity in Christ. The Parish of Saint Mark of Ephesus Orthodox Cathedral likes to thank all of you for helping us make this event a success.
Over the next few days we will be posting pictures, links to pictures, and more pictures, which truly capture the joy and love that everyone experienced this weekend.
We thank our God for bestowing His blessings upon us and we ask that He strengthen our love for each other.
With our Lord's help, see you all at Conference 2015!
Father George Kamberidis
