The Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America has established an Earthquake Relief Fund to provide humanitarian aid to the victims of the recent earthquakes in Turkey and Syria. The focus of the fund is to help with both the immediate needs and the longer-term implications of the devastation from the deadly earthquakes in Turkey and Syria. The Archdiocese will partner with International Orthodox Christian Charities (IOCC) to identify trusted organizations for aid distribution. A long-standing and trusted partner, IOCC has a proven track record in humanitarian and emergency relief and will lend its logistical and on-the-ground expertise to ensure effective distribution of funds raised by the Archdiocese. Distribution will be directed primarily to those impacted by the earthquake in Turkey, and, as opportunities to assist are identified, to Syria. On Sunday, March 5, St. Nicholas will pass a tray to support the GOA Earthquake Relief Fund. Please write a check or donate online to St.Nicholas GOC and write on the memo line Earthquake Relief Fund. We will also continue to accept donations until Sunday, March 19. Thank you for your support.
Ann Arbor's First Orthodox Priest:
A Story of Refugeehood, Migration, and the Ecumenical Riches of Greek-Orthodoxy in America
Who was the first Orthodox Priest of Ann Arbor, and what can we learn from his life story today? This talk will follow the twists and turns in the life of Fr. Agathangelos, the first Greek-Orthodox priest to serve the spiritual needs of Ann Arbor nearly a century ago, and reflect on its broader meanings for Greek Orthodoxy in America. William Stroebel is an Asst. Professor in the Modern Greek Program and Comparative Literature at the University of Michigan. His research focuses on recovering the refugee literatures displaced by the Greco-Turkish Population Exchange of 1923. The lecture will be held Monday, February 20 at 7:00 pm, here at St. Nicholas, and be accompanied with refreshments and a reception after the Q&A.
