Standing Conference of Oriental Orthodox concelebration

(Syrian Orthodox-Antioch) - On Saturday, October 12, 2019, His Eminence Mor Dionysius John Kawak with the Bishops of the Standing Conference of Oriental Orthodox Churches (SCOOCH) convened to celebrate the Divine Liturgy. The service – prayed in the Armenian Rite – was led and hosted by H.G. Bishop Daniel Findikyan of the Eastern Diocese of the Armenian Apostolic Church at St. Leon’s parish. During the service, H.G. Bishop Daniel gave an inspirational sermon, noting that the Liturgy had been convened on the Feast of the Holy Translators of the Armenian Church. His Grace reminded the assembled faithful that if we are not doing our best to translate our Holy Orthodox Faith to the world around us, then we are not truly fulfilling the Great Commission imparted to us by Our Lord Jesus Christ. After Liturgy, the faithful gathered for an agape meal provided by Fr. Diran Bohajian and the parishioners of St. Leon’s. During the meal, each of the bishops spoke in turn, remarking upon our blessed unity in Christ as members of the Oriental Orthodox Church.
