The Holy Synod elects Archbishop JOSEPH

The Great Man and the Friend

Honorable hierarchs, beloved reverend Father, esteemed fellow members of the Board of the Antiochian Archdiocese of North America, brothers and sisters in Christ: I come to tell you a story of the journey of a great man and a friend. It is a story of work, service, determination, friendship, joy, love, and ultimately honor.
On the eve of the Antiochian Unity Conference convened by Patriarch John X and meeting at Balamand Seminary in Lebanon on June 26, 2014, it is fitting to reflect on our North American Antiochian Orthodox journey. Honorary Member of the Archdiocese's Board of Trustees Dr. Eugene J. Sayfie offered this intimate portrait of friendship and honor in his recent tribute published in The Word, June 2014. 

The great man was born in the hills of Lebanon. The friend was born in the hills of West Virginia.

One of the things dearest to Metropolitan Philip's heart was the care of his clergy and their wives during the winter years of their lives so that they could live with dignity. In light of that, he wanted memorial donations to be given to the Clergy Retirement Fund of the Archdiocese. Donations received through this simple and secure online donation form will go to benefit the Fund.

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing into eternal life of our father and chief shepherd,His Eminence, Metropolitan PHILIP Wednesday night around 8:30pm. Please refer to antiochian.org for details as they become available. May his memory be eternal and may his soul rest with the saints.
