47th Annual Archdiocesan Convention of The Syriac Orthodox Church of Antioch In North America
Dear Board of Trustees President:
I would like to take this opportunity to wish you and your entire parish a very healthy and prosperous New Year asking the Almighty to shower His blessings upon you as you continue serving His Holy Church.
As you know this year’s Archdiocesan Convention is being hosted by St. Mark’s Cathedral. We are asking you to MARK YOUR CALENDER FOR THURSDAY, JULY 29TH THROUGH SUNDAY, AUGUST 1ST. Save those dates from now so as to avoid any scheduling conflicts with the convention weekend.
We are kindly asking you to announce the above to your parishioners as soon as possible.
Your presence, and that of your delegation and pastor, is very important to the success of the event. We have planned four days of wholesome convention activities for both you and your parishioners to enjoy. The convention program promises spiritual and social gratification and will live up to its theme: “You did not choose Me, but I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit, and that your fruit should remain.” (John 15:16).
If you have any immediate questions or concerns please contact the following: Jack Darakjy, Convention Co-Chairman at (201) 445-2652; Naim Ghassali, Convention Co-Chairman at (201) 927-8000; or myself, Elias Sarkar, Public Relations Committee Chairman at (201) 641-7522.
We appreciate your cooperation in getting the word out pending the all inclusive mailing of the convention program and activities.
Elias A. Sarkar, Chairman
Public Relations Committee
