2013 Diocesan MGOCSM Thanksgiving Conference on Saturday, November 30, 2013


Every day we are bombarded with ongoing contemporary issues of this world, but where do we stand as Orthodox Christians?

The MGOCSM of the Northeast American Diocese welcomes you to Thanksgiving Conference 2013 so that you can learn about all that and more. The theme of this year's Thanksgiving Conference is "Holy Conversations: The Church's Response to Contemporary Issues", based on the theme verse from St. Matthew 10:16, "Behold I send you out as sheep in the midst of wolves. Therefore be wise as serpents and harmless as doves." His Grace Zachariah Mar Nicholovos, Diocesan Metropolitan, will be in attendance, and the keynote speaker will be Fr. Andrew Stephen Damick (author/speaker).
