On December 11, 2014, we posted an interview with His Eminence Metropolitan Joseph, to discuss his new position and his vision for the Antiochian Orthodox Christian Archdiocese (AOCA). In their conversation he mentioned “Given my ministry is so vast, and I am a servant – I will serve all the people and all the ages…but the youth is my first priority. I will not spare any time, or any means, or any money in serving them. I know that they need something different than before….I will speak their language. I will do everything I can to speak their language and draw their attention the way they understand it.”
Which is why we are delighted to share the news that AOCA has launched an enhanced Daily Scripture Readings Calendar for use in parishes and homes across the Antiochian Archdiocese. Along with daily references, the complete Scriptural texts are now published in full for added convenience and spiritual enrichment. The readings can be accessed in the homepage sidebar, “Today’s Scripture Reading,” to the right of the Feature column.
“Our Daily Calendar uniquely includes readings in honor of Antiochian saints, such as Ss. Sergius and Bacchus (October 7), and St. Abercius (October 22). Now our readers will be able to follow the annual liturgical guide of the Patriarchate of Antioch.” (Director of Internet Ministry, Douglas Cramer.)
Look for them on facebook under Antiochian Orthodox Christian Archdiocese of North America.
