O Lord of Powers, be with us!, for in times of distress, we have no other helper but You. O Lord of Powers, have mercy on us!
Dear Clergy, Faithful and Friends,
THE 52ND NATIONAL MELKITE CONVENTION HAS BEEN POSTPONED AFTER DISCUSSION WITH OUR CONVENTION COMMITTEE & THE BISHOP.
Due to the extremely tenuous time in our lives & throughout the world, we have recommended to the Bishop that we would like to re-consider hosting the gathering of our brothers & sisters from around the country this year. We don’t know when this health pandemic will fade and feel it will be
safer if we hold off.
Yesterday, I spoke with the Bishop and, on behalf of our Committee Members, I requested that he consider this for next year, which he has granted. So, we will reschedule the Convention for next year, and will announce the dates as soon as possible.
Soon, we will be issuing reimbursement checks to all who sent us any money to date.
May God watch over all of us!
