Closing Banquet Address: Fr. Peter Gillquist
July 29, 2007 Length: 26:3920 years after the EOC was received into the Antiochian Archdiocese by Metropolitan PHILIP, Fr. Peter reflects on the experience and what has happened since.
"A thousand thanks for the incredible, edifying, encouraging ministry of AFR. We are in the far north of Scotland, which is extremely secular and can be quite hard going for Christians trying to live their faith minute by minute. We have no church, and the nearest priest is five hours away. Once a month, there is a Divine Liturgy an hour from us, in an ecumenical church building attached to an old hospital. AFR supports our daily practice of our faith and enriches it immensely."
