To the Reverend Clergy, Esteemed Parish Councils, Beloved Philoptochos Ladies, Members of the Various Church and Community Organizations and Faithful of the Holy Archdiocese of America
As you know, on Wednesday, October 26th, His Eminence Archbishop Demetrios, will be celebrating his Name Day, on the occasion of the Feast Day of his patron St. Demetrios the Myrrh-Streamer. In light of this most auspicious celebration, it is my great pleasure to extend to you and all the members of the Greek Orthodox community this invitation to an Open House Reception which will be held Wednesday evening, October 26, 2016 from 6:00 pm till 8:00 pm at the Archdiocesan Center (337 East 74th Street) of the Holy Trinity Cathedral in Manhattan.
His Eminence will be deeply moved and pleased to have the faithful join him in this gathering to honor his Name Day. I look forward to seeing you at the Open House and I know that you join with me in offering a prayer to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ to keep him safe, honorable and healthy for many years, rightly to teach the word of His truth!
Faithfuly in the service of Our Lord,
+ Bishop Andonios of Phasiane
