Cherry Hill - Archbishop Spyridon convened a meeting of all New Jersey Diocese clergy at St. Thomas Greek Orthodox Church in Cherry Hill, NJ, on May 27.
The agenda included a series of reports and an address by His Eminence who spoke on four themes; an enhanced liturgical life in the churches, improved methods in teaching religious education, the need for the Church to make its sacramental presence felt to "the man in the street" and the importance of unity in faith and action.
The Archbishop also told the priests: "There should be no competition between parishes; there should be no friction between parishes and their respective dioceses; there should be no conflict between the dioceses and the Archdiocese; and there should be no separation between the Archdiocese and the Ecumenical Patriarchate."
Seventy-five priests attended the New Jersey Diocese Syndesmos meeting.
