  1. I’m still trying to figure out how such a gathering can be Greek Orthodox and not Greek or Greek-American. Was the music and art liturgical or ethnic, etc.? Can we expect the Metropolis of San Francisco to sponsor a Metropolis wide four day retreat for the youth during the Great Lent? How about just a weekend gathering?

  2. The Archdiocese and its unOrthodox Seminary shun the Hellenistic foundations of our faith but resort to ethnic dog & pony shows in order to fill the collection plates. Opa, your Eminence!
