Bishop John Hosts Clergy Retreat
On Monday, November 4, 2013, His Grace Bishop John hosted a retreat given by Archbishop Joseph, Diocese of Los Angeles and the West, for the clergy of the Diocese of Worcester and New England. His Eminence shared his view of the role of bishop, priest and deacon, and explained how the orders interact with each other during his first session.
Following the lunch prepared by Bishop John, His Eminence spoke candidly and personally about the current situation in Syria, it's effect on the Church of Antioch, and the background and history of our Mother Church. The day was beneficial and edifying for the clergy, and provided an opportunity for fellowship and a strengthening of relationships.
