On November 10-13, the Orthodox Church in America will convene it's 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.
"Would like to thank you for the varied programmes you do. I am an Anglican based in Leicester in the UK and came across your station last year on the internet. I listen most days to your music podcast whilst preparing lessons for my students early in the morning, and I listen to your teaching podcasts via my mp3 player at other times. One or two of my students have even commented on the calming presence of the worship. The content is excellent, and the programmes are ministering to my spiritual needs. My appreciation for the Orthodox faith has deepened, and I am particularly enjoying the new series by Abbott Tryphon whose wisdom is down to earth and yet very practical. May God continue to bless your ministry. "
