Bishop's Council Meeting

Last Wednesday we had a Bishop's Council meeting in Little Falls NJ.

I took Amtrak to Philadelphia and rode up with Fr. Gregory Winsky.  The traffic in Philadelphia was horrible, but I enjoyed riding with Fr. Gregory.

The meeting started with a really nice luncheon.  But this is really typical in Orthodox churches, especially the ethnic churches. 

At the meeting we met our new chancelor Archpriest Igor Tarasov and the rector of the host parish, Fr. Alexei Panusuk.  We also talked about parish management.

We have a facility for elderly people in Clear Water FL and we hope to establish a facility for drug addicts in New York state.

We are recognized by the US Government as a diocese.  This was expensive.

We also had the treasurer's report and started talk on the Convocation for 2018.
