Fr. Andrew Damick Publishes Impressions from Episcopal Assembly


Fr. Andrew Stephen Damick, of St. Paul Antiochian Church of Emmaus, PA, has published his initial impressions of this week's North and Central American Episcopal Assembly, where he is present in an auxiliary role, on OrthodoxHistory.org.

It was a pretty hot day in Manhattan yesterday. Despite the discomfort, though, the Orthodox Christian hierarchy of North America seemed to be in pretty decent spirits.

I’m here in Manhattan at the 2010 Orthodox Episcopal Assembly of North America in an auxiliary role. I don’t get to attend the actual meetings, though I’ve been at some of the meals and have spent time with the hierarchs and others present in the halls of the hotel. Since this is such a genuinely historic occasion, we thought it might be of interest to readers to provide an informal witness to how things have been proceeding, to what it’s like to be here.

Fr. Andrew continues his reflection, with this second part.
