From March 25-28, the Metropolis of Chicago Religious Education Department sponsored its annual Celebration of Books at Holy Apostles Greek Orthodox in Chicago. The theme this year was “Being Sanctified by God’s Grace,” and the keynote addresses were delivered by Fr. Josiah Trenham, priest at St. Andrew Orthodox Church in Riverside, California, and Fr. Nicholas Palis, priest at St. Nicholas Orthodox Church in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. Thousands of books were likewise on display for all to browse and purchase for their libraries.
