Invitation From The Very Rev. Paul D. O’Callaghan, St. George Cathedral Dean

Antiochian Archdiocese - 5 hours 41 min ago

The St. George Cathedral parish community is celebrating its Centennial in 2018. Although the community had its beginning with the arrival of Orthodox Lebanese to Wichita in 1895, it was 1918 before the community would have a church home. On April 5 of that year, several trustees of the newly forming parish concluded the purchase of a small clapboard church at 218 Handley St. from the Episcopal Diocese of Kansas. St. George Church was born!

Throughout this Centennial Year, our community is commemorating the history of our parish and the people who have been a part of it. As we do so, we are not only looking to the past, but to our future – the next 100 years!

The highlight of this auspicious year will be our Centennial Celebration on the weekend of May 5-6. Metropolitan JOSEPH plans to join us, and he and Bishop BASIL will serve the Hierarchical Divine Liturgy on Sunday, May 6. The Celebration will conclude with a festal banquet that evening. Please see the enclosed flyer.

St. George Cathedral belongs not only to its congregation, but to all of us in the Diocese of Wichita and Mid-America. Thus it is our pleasure to invite you to join us for this joyous occasion. Please publicize the event to your congregation; reservation information will be forthcoming. Plan now to celebrate with us!

Archdiocese Policy on Receiving People into the Church

Antiochian Archdiocese - Thu, 2018/02/22 - 3:29pm

Englewood, NJ • His Eminence Metropolitan JOSEPH • February 22, 2018

In response to questions that have been raised recently, His Eminence Metropolitan JOSEPH reaffirms the long-standing policy of the Antiochian Archdiocese, which is in accordance with the practice of the Orthodox Patriarchate of Antioch and All the East, regarding the reception of converts to the Faith. To be clear, Holy Baptism in the Name of the Holy Trinity, followed by Holy Chrismation, is the normative means by which one is initiated into the Holy Church. When receiving those coming into Holy Orthodoxy from religious confessions who profess a belief in the Holy Trinity and baptize with water in the Name of Father, and of Son, and of the Holy Spirit, the Church from ancient times has done so through means of Holy Chrismation or a profession of the Faith – depending on the circumstances.

In other words, when baptism is necessary, there is a baptism. When Chrismation is necessary there is a Chrismation. When a profession of the Faith is necessary, there is a profession of the Faith. When questions arise requiring discernment as to how a person is to be received into the Church, a priest must consult with the local bishop.

In the past several months, there has been a significant increase in the number of vicious and insensitive anti-Christian public ‘artworks’ and vandalism of churches across Australia.
