Volunteers and Help Requested for Nigeria

August 28/September 10, 2019

Dear Fathers:

 

Christ is on our midst.

 

     At the end of October (Oct. 22 to Nov. 4) Bishop Maximus of Pelagonia will make a missionary trip to the African country of Nigeria. In Nigeria, a large group of people from the New Calendarist Patriarchate of Alexandria, realizing the problems with the heresy of Ecumenism, have asked to be received into our holy Church. The Synod in Greece assigned the responsibility for the fledgling Church in Nigeria to the GOC of America, inasmuch as the official language of the country is English. Now Bishop Maximus will go to establish approximately six churches, chrismate hundreds of faithful, meet with local kings, and give instruction to the new flock of Christ on True Orthodoxy. He is asking for volunteers to accompany him in order to help transport books, vestments, liturgical items, and so forth, and to assist in general with the missionary endeavor. Additionally, he is seeking a priest to accompany him to help with the services, including possible ordinations. Anyone who is interested may contact him at:

The costs of the trip are approximately $900 for the plane ticket and $50 per day for hotel and food. More information will be available as it is provided by the Nigerian welcoming committee.



Your servant in Christ,



Protopresbyter George Kamberidis

Fasting

Q. There seems to be a lot of variation in how people observe fasting, but my confessor told me to fast from oil on Wednesday and Friday. Oil is a pretty vague category, though, and I was wondering if I could get a more explicit description of what kinds of food and drink are excluded on strict fast days. Read more...
