  • FATHER JOSPEH IN CHICAGO

    One year ago, nineteen Orthodox Christians, including Father Joseph, gathered to become part of the IOCC Frontline. This past week the entire Frontline team gathered in Chicago for two days of additional training. The Frontline members now total more than 100 people who trained to respond across the country's ten Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) regions. Forty-five of the previously trained members joined the new Frontline volunteers for continued training at the end of the week.

    "Keep going, you are doing important work. This is an important witness to the world by Orthodox Christians," affirmed Archbishop Nicolae of the Romanian Orthodox Archdiocese in the Americas to IOCC Frontline members who gathered with IOCC Executive Director Constantine Triantafilou for a prayer service and dinner last spring at the Archdiocesan Center. Archbishop Nicolae also serves as the Episcopal Liaison between the Assembly of Canonical Orthodox Bishops of the United States of America and IOCC.

    The Frontline members also received blessings from Bishop Demetrios of the Greek Orthodox Metropolis of Chicago who praised the group for their work to "minister to the Lazaruses on our doorsteps right here in the United States." He also conveyed the greetings and blessings of Metropolitan Iakovos of the Greek Orthodox Metropolis of Chicago. Bishop Peter of Cleveland of the Russian Orthodox Church Outside of Russia also offered his personal encouragement to the group.

    Underwritten by a two-year grant from the Archbishop Iakovos Leadership 100 Endowment Fund of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese, the training is part of an IOCC initiative to develop a volunteer network to provide a regional response capacity to disasters in the United States, and to better coordinate with local, state and federal disaster response agencies.

    2015 ANTIOCHIAN WOMEN'S PROJECT

    For 2015, the Antiochian Women have been tasked by His Eminence Metropolitan JOSEPH with a new Project: "Nurturing the Seeds of Orthodoxy Across North America: Regional Camping & Learning Centers & Monastic Communities." The Metropolitan's vision is to offer programs and centers across North America that focus on Orthodoxy: our way of life, our worship, and our faith. We must reach out to children and adults of all ages, and have facilities (camps and/or centers) for these activities to take place.

    The second part of this Project is the establishment of "Monastic Communities." Monasteries are where the Gospel is lived on a daily basis and are places of beauty and holiness. It is where we as faithful Orthodox should go for spiritual nourishment and refreshment. Overseas, Antiochian Orthodox monasteries are plentiful but, in North America, they are sorely lacking. The goal is to create Antiochian Orthodox monastic communities throughout the United States and Canada.

    Let us recall the parable of the mustard seed: "To what shall we liken the kingdom of God? . It is like a mustard seed which . when it is sown, it grows up and becomes greater than all herbs, and shoots out large branches, so that the birds of the air may nest under its shade." (Mark 4:30-32) We as Antiochian Women must help to nurture these mustard seeds, and Orthodoxy, across North America.

    We ask for your support of this exciting Project towards the future of our beloved Antiochian Archdiocese.

    Today following the Liturgy, Katie Birtwell, president of the Ladies of Saint George will speak about their work. And mark your calendars for March 25th, the Feast of the Annunciation: The Ladies annual fish dinner will follow the 6:00 Liturgy. Reservations are required.



    IOCC ASSISTS SYRIAN CHRISTIANS

    Baltimore, MD (IOCC) - Fleeing for their lives, more than 2,400 exhausted and traumatized Christians from northeastern Syria sought refuge in the towns of Hasakah and Qamishli after their small communities were terrorized this week. The attackers targeted a stretch of villages along the southern bank of the Khabour River, where they burned homes and churches, murdered a fleeing 16-year-old boy, and abducted 150 Assyrian Christian men, women and children from their homes.

    For those who managed to escape the attack and seek shelter in Hasakah, International Orthodox Christian Charities (IOCC), with its church partner, the Greek Orthodox Patriarchate of Antioch and All the East (GOPA), is providing food, medical attention, and emergency aid. IOCC/GOPA, which has offices in both Hasakah and Qamishli, is responding to the immediate needs of more than 1,000 displaced Syrian families seeking shelter at the Syriac Orthodox Church and the Assyrian Church in the Al Nasreh neighborhood of Hasakah with the distribution of food parcels, bedding, infant clothing and shoes. More than 600 of the survivors who fled the onslaught are children.

    IOCC, an ACT Alliance member, is one of the few humanitarian organizations inside Syria providing immediate assistance to displaced families and elderly who have endured four years of a brutal war. Working in 28 offices across Syria, IOCC has provided relief to 2.5 million vulnerable people inside Syria since 2012.
