HOLY RELICS – ‘ΑΓΙΑ ΛΕΙΨΑΝΑ
The Holy relic (‘Αγιo Λείψανο) of St. Andrew the Apostle will be on display in the reliquary of the Annunciation Cathedral of Detroit for embracement and veneration for whomever wishes to do so.
The Holy relics have been safe-guarded in the sanctuary of the Annunciation Greek Orthodox Cathedral for over one hundred years, and it is now the time for them to be venerated and presented to all the faithful Christians.
PARISH COUNCIL NEWS
The Membership Committee of the Annunciation Cathedral has embarked on an important mission to attempt to encourage fellow Orthodox Christians to be part of our family. Our purpose is not to try to dislodge people from their parishes, but instead to have them also consider supporting the Cathedral whenever they can, to encourage people who have historically been our parishioners to return and to encourage people who currently aren’t participating in a church, to consider us. Our initial efforts focused on encouraging our current members fill out a stewardship card and to gather information. We truly thank everyone who completed the questionnaire, which was an important part of this Stewardship effort. We received a significant number of responses and the feedback is invaluable in helping us gather information to assist in planning for the Cathedral’s future. We are in the process of gleaning and prioritizing the ideas and suggestions that will help to increase our membership and participation in our beloved Cathedral. Over the summer we will work hard to create a strategy to hopefully improve the experience we all come to church for, to foster our spiritual development. Along the way, we hope you will all help in the process any way you can, especially pray for us to be given enlightenment on how we can best accomplish our mission to serve our Cathedral family. We are planning to have a secondary Stewardship campaign in September as a launch to our new plan. We will periodically send out other informational notes to keep you apprised of how the process is going. Those of you who have already filled out your stewardship cards and indicated interest in participation, we will be getting in touch with you soon. Thanks again!
