Update Regarding the Flint, MI Water Crisis

Protestors object to unsafe water in Flint, MIProtestors object to unsafe water in Flint, MIDear Metropolitan Joseph, Bishop Anthony, beloved hierarchs, and Midwest Diocesan Clergy,

Masters Bless! Christ is in our Midst!

I want to thank everyone who has contacted me about the terrible situation the residents of Flint, MI are going through. As you may have learned, this has been going on for over one and a half years.

I wanted to let you know our parish of St. George (Flint Township) along with the 3 other Orthodox Churches in the Flint area (Assumption-GOA, St. Mary Magdalene and St. Nicholas, both Bulgarian-OCA) are located outside of the City of Flint and are not part of the crisis. Further, like most of our parishioners, all of our clergy families live in the suburbs of Flint which, again, is not affected. Unfortunately, our parish has 40 families who live in the City of Flint and will continue to live with this unbelievable problem for an undetermined period of time.
