Orthodox Christians for Life

From Fr. Dean Botsis of the Orthodox Christian Clergy Association of Greater Chicago Area

Next Sunday, January 18, the Chicago March for Life will take place, beginning at the Federal Plaza in Chicago. We would certainly like to show an Orthodox Christian presence at this March! At this point, His Grace Bishop Paul (OCA-Chicago) and His Grace Bishop Anthony (Antiochian-Toledo) are expected to participate. Any Orthodox Christians who can “March for Life” are asked to meet at the Federal Plaza, under the Orthodox Christian for Life banner!

Our annual Sanctity of Life Service will take place on the following Sunday, January 25, at the St. Haralambos Greek Orthodox Church in Niles, Illinois, at 6:00 pm. Following this prayer service, there will be a presentation by Mr. George Petmezas called, “Faith and Perseverance on a Life-changing Journey.”
