Fellowship of St. John the Divine
The Fellowship of St. John the Divine is a group of leaders who, representing different dioceses, come together at one table to develop and administer programs, projects, and activities that are intended to help each local parish find ways to fulfill its true calling in Christ.
Some of the activities the Fellowship supports or has itself developed include: mission trips, pan-Orthodox fellowship events at conferences, the production and dissemination of education materials about Church unity, the St. Philip’s Prayer Discipline program, young adult retreats, the Food for Hungry People program, the Creative Festivals, and the Oratorical and Bible Bowl Festivals. The Fellowship communicates opportunities for involvement through periodic bulletin inserts.
With the blessing of His Eminence Metropolitan Joseph, the 2015 Archdiocese Mid-Winter Meetings will be held at the Antiochian Village in Ligonier, PA, February 6-8, 2015. The Archdiocese and Diocese officers of the Antiochian Women, Fellowship of St. John Divine, and Teen SOYO will gather for their annual Mid-Winter meetings to conduct the business of our Archdiocese organizations. Travel, lodging, and registration information is below. Please contact your NAC/NAB President if you have any questions.
On August 14–17, 2014, the NAC Fellowship of St. John the Divine hosted the Orthodox Young Professionals Conference in San Diego, CA. This conference, the culmination of a year-long effort, was the first of its kind for any Orthodox jurisdiction.
Co-Chaired by Kyra Pelachik and Fadi George Madanat, the Orthodox Young Professionals Conference brought together 125 Orthodox young adults representing every major metropolitan area in the United States, as well as Vancouver, Toronto, Montreal and Ontario, Canada. The conference gave attendees an opportunity to network, listen to prominent speakers, engage in very meaningful and practical discussions about their faith, and learn about the interdependence between their personal lives and the life of the Church.
His Eminence Metropolitan Joseph, in special attendance at the conference, shared his vision for Orthodoxy in North America.
