New Diocesan Youth Ministry Established

Sunday, September 04, 2005

BINGHAMTON, NY - His Eminence, Metropolitan Nicholas announced at the 61st National ACRY Convention his plans to inaugurate a comprehensive Diocesan-wide Youth Ministry. In his address at the final business session of the convention, His Eminence called upon the members of the ACRY to support his effort to more effectively reach out to the spiritual needs of our diocesan youth. His Eminence stated that the new diocesan-wide youth ministry initiative would be deemed a "New Apostolate" of the diocese and would be pursued with an apostolic zeal, for in our present day and age, our children are in need of being rescued from the stormy seas of life. It was announced that a Diocesan Youth Commission would be appointed in the near future which would be headed by a senior priest of the diocese, and would include the Administrator of Camp Nazareth, the Junior ACRY spiritual advisor and other clergy who are gifted with ministering to the youth.

Sunday, June 19, 2005

I welcome you, beloved, into the courts of Pentecost! I welcome you, this day, to the heights of the Church, the Body of Christ! I welcome you to this fiftieth day after the Resurrection, when Christ fulfilled His promise to send the Holy Spirit, the day which we celebrate at every Chrismation, every reception of the Eucharist, every ordination and consecration to the Episcopacy and all the sacraments I welcome you to the harmonious and unified song of praise - a song that began in the Upper Room after the Resurrection ... a song that continues even until this very day! Today, I bid you enter the "cloud of dew and flame of rain" on this Feast of Pentecost. Enter now into the courts of the Resurrected Christ, and the Body of His Church. Read more...

2005 Saints Cyril & Methodius Feast Day Observance at Camp Nazareth

Saturday, April 16, 2005

On Tuesday, May 24th we give thanks to God for the mission of the Apostles of the Slavs to our forefathers. We remember the gifts of these great Greek missionaries to our peoples. Journeying far from Thessalonica into the old Moravian lands, the two sainted brothers brought the blessings of Orthodoxy and the legacies of Byzantine civilization to our pagan ancestors. So we remember them, and we ask that they continue to intercede for us in prayer - we, who are the successors of their first converts. We do not treat Saints Cyril and Methodios as antique objects of mere ethnic nostalgia. We treat them as the active saints they are, continuing their ministry to the Slavs and all Christians as they intercede in Paradise for our souls. Read more...
