St. Argyre the Patron Saint of Marriage


Have you ever been to a summer place that you think about all year long? We’ve invited Fr. Elias Villis, the priest of Christ Our Savior Greek Orthodox Church in Rye, NY and the Director for Camp Saint Paul, the camp ministry for the Archdiocese District, to be with us today to share his passion for camp ministry. We are sure you will be inspired, and we have included the link to find an Orthodox camp program near you.

But first, we have Dr. David Ford, Professor of Church History at St. Tikhon’s Orthodox Theological Seminary. He and his wife are the co-authors of Marriage as a Path to Holiness: Lives of Married Saints. Listen as he shares the inspiring story of St. Argyre, our patron saint of marriage.
