In the summer of 2018, His Eminence Metropolitan JOSEPH will be leading a pilgrimage to Orthodox Thessaloniki, Kosovo, and Serbia. Titled "Spiritual Awakening," the trip is slated for June 14–26, 2018, with a registration deadline of March 15. Traveling through holy lands with a hierarch at the head of the trip often opens "the pearly gates" through unplanned and grace-filled opportunities unique to this type of adventure.

The pilgrimage has been especially created for young adults and professionals aged 21–35. The trip will be limited to 30 people and will include a few clergy. Baptized Orthodox Christians of any jurisdiction may participate, especially those who are interested in exploring Orthodox history, art, architecture, and music, all within the fellowship of the Church. Young adults who enjoy networking with peers abroad and have an interest in humanitarian opportunities will enjoy this life-changing opportunity. Pilgrims will enjoy all that these holy lands have to offer in an intense schedule of touring that will also still leave time for fun. The itinerary includes time for services, prayer, exploration, relaxation, and building bonds with other Orthodox professionals. Register today to receive a detailed itinerary!​

Thought for the Day

When the deacon is led to kneel at the altar for the first time, he first kisses the four corners in three consecutive processions around the holy Table. The same hymns sung at the marriage ceremony are sung again at this holy moment. This is our wedding to Christ and just as the bride greets her bridegroom with a kiss, so we greet the Lord and express our love for Him and for His kingdom when we enter the Holy Altar and bow and kiss the Holy Table with joy. -- His Eminence, Metropolitan JOSEPH
