October 01, 2008 Length: 18:34
On November 10-13, the Orthodox Church in America will convene its 15th All-American Council in Pittsburgh. It is a significant event as a new Metropolitan will be elected. Ancient Faith Radio is honored to be the official media partner for the Council and will be there in November to make the sessions available for those who cannot come. We will also bring you the announcement of the new Metropolitan as well as an interview with him. In a series of interviews leading up to November 10, we will talk with various representatives of the OCA in anticipation of this historic event.
In this first interview we talk with Fr. Andrew Jarmus, the Director of Ministries and Communications for the OCA and provide some basic information about the event including the process followed in electing a new Metropolitan.
"I have been listening to AFR for a couple of years now. I was introduced to it by an Eastern Rite Catholic deacon. These podcasts have been invaluable. I began to hunger, thirst, and long after Holy Orthodoxy. On Christmas Eve of this year, I was chrismated into the Orthodox faith—my husband with me! Truly a dream come true! We are both Americans who live in the Middle East, and I am grateful for this website which provides us with so much spiritual nourishment so that we can be a light unto others. Thank you!"
