The 59th Annual Diocesan Assembly was hosted by St. Nicholas Orthodox Church in Bethlehem, PA on January 26 & 27, 2023. Day 1 started with the registration of the parish priests, delegates, and invited guests. The start of this two-day event always begins with the renewing of old friendships. The meeting began with “O Heavenly King…” , the presentation of the agenda, and the message of Archbishop Mark.
A wonderful dinner was served by the parishioners of St. Nicholas, followed by Great Vespers.
After Vespers, in the church, Mother Christophora of Holy Transfiguration Monastery gave a wonderful homily. Her message included, “Life, Love and Longevity”.
The evening concluded in Chernay Fellowship Hall, with a wine and cheese reception provided by the hosts of St. Nicholas Church.
