Keynote Address By His Eminence Archbishop Demetrios, Geron of America at the 43rd Clergy-Laity Congress

By the grace of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ we are together again as Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America at our 43rd Clergy-Laity Congress in Nashville, Tennessee. Our meeting today takes place not only on this important national day of the 4th of July, but also immediately after a historic event for global Orthodoxy, namely the Holy and Great Council of Orthodox Autocephalous Churches in Crete, Greece. We also give thanks to God for another great gift, the ground breaking ceremony for the building of St. Nicholas in the World Trade Center, at Ground Zero. I started with the above two special events, the Council of our Orthodox Churches and the building of St. Nicholas because of their exceptional importance for the life of the Church.
