Diocese of Worcester and New England


Antiochian Women
Diocese of Worcester and New England

The Antiochian Orthodox Christian Women of North America was founded in 1973 through the vision of His Eminence Metropolitan Philip Saliba as an organization of the Antiochian Orthodox Christian Archdiocese of North America. Its purpose is to develop a spirit of Christian leadership, awareness, and commitment; to foster a genuine expression of love and service through works of charity; and to instill a sense of fellowship and a deeper understanding of the heritage and traditions of the Orthodox Church.

The Diocese of Worcester and New England comprises eleven Antiochian Women member chapters belonging to eleven churches in Massachusetts and Rhode Island. The Antiochian Women representatives (the officers, the coordinators, and four voting members from each member chapter) meet quarterly in General Assembly meetings. These meetings include a business portion, a luncheon, and sometimes an informative speaker or program.
