Just wanted to update you on some things, I hope you can forward this to the
Toronto Metropolis email list and to the HOCNA Synod email list:
1. According to the www.esphigmenou.com website, Greece's highest
administrative court has set a date of January 18, 2005 to issue its final
decision on the Holy Monastery of Esphigmenou at Mount Athos (Agion Oros),
Greece. I'm not sure how valid this information is, but it might be a good
idea for some individuals to send out some refresher emails, letters, and
phone calls to those authorities who can make a positive difference for the
Fathers. A list of appropriate people to contact can be found on
www.EsphigmenouMonastery.com (under the "Support" button).
2. Due to a technical change occuring at Rogers (my internet service
provider), I was required to move the www.EsphigmenouMonastery.com website
to a new location (Yahoo). I've had some technical problems transferring
the Slavic/Serbian pages, and require anyone that reads/speaks the language
to proof read the material just in case there was data corruption.
3. I have put together a new online bulletin board website for zealot (Old
Calendarist) Orthodox Christians, located at www.OrthodoxDiscussions.com.
Its a pilot project, and geared towards those who have questions to ask
regarding our Faith (from possible new converts and youth, to more
developed/advanced sections), where people can meet and help each other out
in their spiritual development. In addition, its an informational database
where articles that deal with Orthodoxy can be archived and posted for
reference/reading purposes. Please spread the word to all those that might
Do you Yahoo!?
