During these times of painful “fragmentation” that our Orthodox Churches are experiencing around the world, The School of Ecclesiastic Music in Mount Lebanon (SEM), with the encouragement and blessing of our Father in Christ, His Eminence, Metropolitan Silouan of Byblos and Botris (Mount Lebanon), has taken the initiative to hold, during this Holy Lent Season, an international Byzantine Chanting Concert, titled: … And in One Church.
This Byzantine Concert is a genuine call to stress upon our unity as an Orthodox Church worldwide, a message that expresses our witness to the one Faith, Baptism and Spirit that beholds our service to the Good News and our brethren and fellowmen. It was requested that all Orthodox radio and TV stations around the world broadcast this Concert at the same time, on Holy Friday at 10 pm Lebanon time/2:00 pm Central Time so that this “One Church” message is also translated into various languages and passed on across the world, especially to our brothers and sisters in Christ who are looking for such a message of faith, hope, and love.
The media outlets around the world who are participating are:
SPAS TV Channel - The official TV Channel of the Russian Orthodox Church
TV HRAM - The Orthodox TV of Serbia & Montenegro
Ancient Faith Radio
Voice of Grace Radio - Orthodox Patriarchate of Antioch from Lebanon & Syria
