If you have any candid shots to add, please send them to Fr. Thomas. Many of our parishioners have posted photos of the main "scenes" of the week, the beauty of our Cathedral and the hierarchs and clergy celebrating the services, however, these photos are the candid shots of our faithful without whom we would be celebrating in an empty church. God bless you all.

Orthros that day will be at 9:45am and Divine Liturgy at 11:00am. We will have the block cleared that morning for people attending the liturgy to park. There will be a reception and lunch at the Brooklyn Marriott that afternoon with our Patriarch and the Maronite Patriarch who will also be in the US for the same reason and will be in Brooklyn that Sunday morning at their Cathedral. <a href="/files/Patriarch-Flier.pdf">Please click here for the flier and reception/luncheon information.</a> This will be a very special occasion for our two communities and we look forward to everyone&rsquo;s support as our Patriarch leads our Church in the Middle East through a very turbulent time.</span></div> <div class="" style="color: #000000;
