Although they are called the "Fall Meetings," to those assembled therein, they are more than just meetings.

By the grace of God, His Eminence Metropolitan Joseph has inaugurated a full spiritual weekend for the bishops, clergy leaders, and lay leaders of the Antiochian Archdiocese at the annual Fall Meetings on October 23-25, 2015. The weekend is co-hosted by St. Michael Church of Van Nuys and St. Nicholas Cathedral of Los Angeles.
