Antiochian Women Raise Funds for Bishop Anthony's Project

The Antiochian Women of the Diocese of the Midwest and Toledo answered the call of Bishop Anthony when he requested the establishment of a Speakers Bureau Fund. To honor His Grace's Name Day, the group mailed pledge cards to each parish in the Diocese.

The parishes and individuals of the Diocese responded with typical generosity and over $5,000 was raised. "This will enable the Bishop to bring in national and international speakers and clerics to Parish Life Conferences, Spring and Fall Gatherings, and other meetings within the Diocese of the Midwest," said Cynthia O'Connor, President of the Antiochian Women of the Midwest. She further indicated that the women intend to mail out pledge cards every year, to ensure that His Grace has the funds necessary to reach this goal.
