Preparing for Great and Holy Lent

Director of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America’s Department of Religious Education, Tony Vrame, joins us to explain the reason for the difference in dates and to offer some advice on explaining it to others. But first, we’ll hear about religious cleansing happening right now in Turkish-occupied Cyprus from Dr. Elizabeth Prodromou. To learn more, visit www.hellenicleaders.com.
