With the blessing of His Beatitude, Metropolitan Tikhon, the Orthodox Church in America was represented at the Enthronement of His Beatitude, Metropolitan Onufry of Kyiv and All Ukraine by His Grace, Bishop Michael and His Grace, Bishop Irénée on Sunday, August 17, 2014.
For the August Long weekend, the clergy of the Manitoba and Saskatchewan deanery met in Yorkton at the parish of St. Mark the Evangelist. The primary goal of the meeting was to simply talk about the challenges and successes of parish life, as well as talk about Archdiocesan life and events.
With the blessing of their diocesan bishops, the superiors (or their representatives) of monastic communities within the Orthodox Church in America gathered at the Chancery here for a “Synaxis” July 21-23, 2014.
In addition to spiritual fellowship and mutual upbuilding and encouragement, common concerns and the emerging nature of North American monasticism were discussed.
