      Canadian Parish Continues Support of Chinese Orthodox Mission: Chinese
      Missions Dinners could emerge in every community, says priest

      HAMILTON, ONTARIO — Red silks with gold thread. Steaming noodles and
      crab claws. Commemorating spiritual ancestors in China: A typical
      gathering of Orthodox Christians?

      It is for the Orthodox Church in China, and their brethren in Christ
      in Canada.

      On Saturday, June 10/23, 2007, All Saints of North America Orthodox
      Church, in co-operation with St. Nicholas Serbian Orthodox Church in
      Hamilton, Ontario, Canada, with host their second annual dinner in
      support of the Orthodox Fellowship of All Saints of China.

      The Project combines the work of the Chinese Orthodox Translations
      Project in Boston, MA, and the seminary training and work of Chinese
      Orthodox missionaries headquartered in Hong Kong and Moscow. Last
      year, the dinner raised $3000 Canadian for the Chinese Missions.

      For the first time this year, the service of Vespers with an Akathist
      to the Orthodox Martyrs of China, will be served at the Serbian
      Orthodox parish.

      "This is an exciting example of Orthodox Christians from all
      backgrounds, working together for the glory of God, to share the
      Gospel with Chinese speaking people," said Father Geoffrey Korz,
      priest of All Saints of North America parish.

      The guest speaker for the event will be Father Peter Alban Heers from
      Greece, operator of Uncut Mountain Press, a publishing house
      specializing in the translation of Orthodox spiritual books from Greek
      into English.

      "Having Father Peter with us to speak about the topic of Orthodox
      Christian mission work is the perfect testimony to the universal
      message of the Gospel, and the unity of love within the Church."

      Father Geoffrey and the parish members are hopeful for the future.

      "We pray that other parishes, across North America and Europe, will
      follow suit, and gather to ask the prayers of the saints of China for
      this holy work, and will take the initiative to enjoy Chinese cuisine
      together, in support of this mission project. With Christ, all things
      are indeed possible."
