2019 Palm Sunday Pastoral Greeting of Metropolitan JOSEPH

Beloved in Christ:

Blessings and greetings to you and your families on the day of this Great Feast! Having completed the forty-day Fast, we take time before entering into Holy Week to celebrate the raising of Lazarus and our Lord's triumphant entry into the holy city of Jerusalem before His salvific passion and resurrection. Christ's raising of Lazarus is a prototype of our bodily resurrection, and His entry into Jerusalem confirms his kingship of humility and love, not egoism and the sword.

The historical settings of these two decisive events bring us back to the Middle East and our Mother Church. While we are hopeful that the terrible war that has plagued Syria for the past several years is coming to an end, its effects on the people both of Syria and Lebanon will be felt for generations. As they turn from this time of war and suffering to one of hope and rebuilding, we must continue to stand with our Father in Christ, Patriarch JOHN X, and the daunting task he faces. Let us help him to ensure that our Church will remain both a beacon of hope to the suffering and displaced and a leader in the efforts to rebuild and restore the brokenness of the people.

Today, as we celebrate this glorious feast, let us remember our beloved Mother Church as She undertakes this holy work. In addition to offering up prayers, let us also offer up donations so that we might put our faith into action. While most of us will never visit Syria, we can still do our part to help alleviate the pain and suffering and instill a ray of hope into the hearts and souls of the people.

Wishing you a solemn Holy Week and a most joyous Pascha, I remain,

Your Father in Christ,


Archbishop of New York and Metropolitan of all North America


Christ the Bridegroom
Christ the Bridegroom

The decisive hour in the life of Christ has come. It is HOLY WEEK, that momentous series of days that have transformed this world. The Son of God comes triumphantly into Jerusalem, and the stage is set for the fulfillment of the promises of the Almighty. Change is about to come.

The icon of the Nymphios – THE BRIDEGROOM – sets the time for the week. The Lord is crowned with thorns, His hands are tied as a criminal. He carries the reed as a mock scepter. He is draped in a cape and His face hears the sad countenance of His impending suffering and death. The Bridegroom is to be taken away from us, and so the days of sadness are at hand.

At the beginning of the week, the parable of the Ten Virgins is read at services. It is found in the 25th Chapter of St. Matthew. This hymn reflects the significance of that story: “Behold, the Bridegroom comes in the middle of the night, and blessed is the servant whom He shall find watching; and again, unworthy is he whom He shall find heedless. Beware, therefore, O my soul, lest you shut out of the Kingdom. Rather, rouse yourself and cry: Holy, Holy, Holy art Thou, O God.”

Then, as the week continues, we come to the commemoration of the betrayal by Judas, the washing of the disciples’ feet, the institution of the Mystical Supper, the passion and death of the Lord, Christ’s descent into Hades, and finally the culmination of all things, PASCHA.

St. Mary of Egypt
SOYO Teen Cyber Retreat

April 13 was the first annual SOYO Teen Cyber Retreat for our Diocese. Teens and Tweens from all over the southeast U.S. participated in live streamed video lectures and some fun activities at the Church. It was a good building experience for the youth and the diocese as we look to grow the Church in future years.

Antiochian Women Announce 2019 Project: "Building A New Cathedral"

When Metropolitan JOSEPH told us of his inspiration to build a new and beautiful cathedral on the grounds of the Village, we all immediately understood why this is such a wonderful vision. Not only does the building of a new cathedral give form to Metropolitan PHILIP's metaphor of a beating heart in the center of our Archdiocese, but a new and inspiring cathedral will also satisfy several practical and pressing needs. This vision of Metropolitan JOSEPH is one that I'm sure the Antiochian Women will be eager to help bring into reality.​
