Though the GOARCH Clergy-Laity Congress usually occurs every two years, this year’s was notable not only for its commemoration of the Centennial of the Archdiocese, but for its in-person return after convening virtually in 2019. The regathering of so many clergy and laity face-to-face again was cause for celebration, and it inspired reflection among delegates on the challenges that complicated—and renewed—various ministries across the Archdiocese during the pandemic. At the Department of Greek Education, for example, facilitating Greek language instruction remotely has been a main concern.
