9552Re: Synodal Cathedral feastday
- Nov 28, 2003It would seem that things are different this year because the feast
falls in the course of the week when there will be first the All-
diaspora meeting and then the session Council of Bishops. Surely
there will be a greater influx of clergy and worshippers than usual,
and a geater amount of work is required to arrange such a banquet.
I would also venture to add that a gathering of this importance
requires a special banquet.
I recall in the days when I used to spend more time in New York -
this would be the 70s and 80s - I attended a number of banquets in
rather upscale locations in honour of, as on example, the 10th
anniversary of Metropolitan Philaret's election as First Hierarch.
The tickets then -in 1975! - cost $50. Did this also have something
to do with lack of love or sharing different hopes and dreams? No,
it had to do with it being a festive occasion. Besides, NYC isn't
cheap! If you have ever tried to arrange something at a decent
location, you know that $100 is not unreasonable.
