Earlier this year, his Eminence, Metropolitan JOSEPH, visited St. Nicholas in Grand Rapids, Michigan, to give his blessing to the plans for AC2019. While with us, we interviewed him about the need for the bi-ennial Archdiocese Conventions, what their true purpose is, and what is accomplished by them. He spoke about the Unity of the Church and Evangelizing outside the Church. Sayidna also shared his plans for the future of the Antiochian Village, as it celebrates 40 years. And he spoke boldly about how important the Laity is to the Antiochian Orthodox Church.

Listen to Metropolitan JOSEPH…in his own words.
