On December 11, 2021, the Order of Saint Andrew the Apostle, Archons of the Ecumenical Patriarchate, presented an Archon Boot Camp via Zoom. This dynamic, multimedia presentation explained what it means to be an Archon of the Ecumenical Patriarchate, and the ways in which each new Archon can assume the serious responsibility to defend the Holy Mother Church.
The Archon Boot Camp was geared toward the Archon Class of 2021; however, all Archons were encouraged to attend, as each Archon Boot Camp presents an opportunity for Archons to revitalize and reinvigorate their efforts to support and defend the Ecumenical Patriarchate, the holy center of the Orthodox Faith.
National Commander Anthony J. Limberakis, MD called the Boot Camp to order and invited Archon John Zavitsanos, Esq. to chair the session. Archon Zavitsanos explained what becoming an Archon really means and spoke about the efforts of the Archons, their mission, and the plight of the Ecumenical Patriarchate.
