HOCNA Clergy Synaxis 2014

The Holy Orthodox Church in North America convened its annual Clergy Synaxis on Friday, October 3, and Saturday, October 4, 2014, at St. Anna’s Hall in Roslinndale, MA, followed by a Hierarchal Divine Liturgy on Sunday, October 5, at St. Mark’s Orthodox Cathedral, also in Roslindale. Present were Their Eminences, Metropolitan Ephraim of Boston and Metropolitan Makarios of Toronto, and Their Graces, Bishop Gregory of Brookline and Bishop Andrew of Markham, along with a little under twenty clergy. (Continue reading at the source, or see photos here and here).

The article mentions the following talks were presented:

  • “Human Language and Divine Revelation: On the Theological Nominalism of Metropolitan Anthony (Khrapovitsky) and Fr. John Romanides” (Hierodeacon Samuel of Holy Transfiguration Monastery).
  • “The Kallinikos-Cyprian-Agafangel Unity Agreement of Old Calendar Synods in March 2014: An Act of Betrayal Against the Legacy of Saint Philaret the New Confessor and Against the True Orthodox Christians of Greece” (Thomas S. Deretich of Boston).
  • Various matters of practical pastoral concern (Protopresbyter Andrew Boroda of the Prophet Elias Orthodox Church in St. Paul, MN).
Editorial Comment: are either Fr. Samuel’s or Mr. Deretich’s talks available anywhere online? If not, might they be soon? I think they might be of interest to NFTU readers.
