Upcoming meeting…

Next week I will fly to Pennsylvania and stay at Antiochian Village for a few days. I was invited to work with some other Orthodox Christians to help draft a memorial service for miscarried and stillborn babies and put together resources for priests and parishes to use to assist grieving families. Other than having put together this site, and having lost four babies, I don’t know exactly what I’m bringing to the table, but I am happy to contribute however I can. This group will be meeting under the auspices of the Committee for Pastoral Practice of the Assembly of Canonical Orthodox Bishops of the US. Please pray that we will have a productive meeting and that we will all have safe travels.

    I know this may not be the bast time but maybe c someone could reach out to Father Tom Hopko. He had put together a service for just this purpose. At least it could be a starting point. God bless.

    Fr. Thomas Hopko is in his last days, possibly hours. May God grant him a good end! The conference was very productive and we are still, at home, working on a priest's booklet that will include various prayer and services. There were many services out there and those responsible for the liturgical end of things have spent much effort filtering and compiling.
