You are gathering in Tarpon Springs, a touchstone of the American Greek Orthodox experience, to connect with one another on behalf of the ministry of your beloved and esteemed Metropolitan Alexios, and all of your co-workers in Christ. I was excited to see that in addition to the participation of Philoptochos, you are also including the Southeastern Federation of Greek Orthodox Choirs and Musicians, as well as the Sisterhood of Presvyteres. Thus, you are representing the fullness of the Body of Christ that ministers in the Metropolis of Atlanta.
