Dear brothers and sisters, we offer you this announcement of upcoming events at our spiritual center.

June 29-30, 2016 Mountain View will host, participants in a theological conference, organized by our sister Church the Greek Orthodox Church. The conference will be chaired by the Greek Metropolitan of All America Demetrios, and in attendance will be bishops and clergy from all over North America. The aim of the conference is to discuss various aspects of the life of the Orthodox Church on the North American continent and discussing ways in which to increase spiritual life of the Church, whose main objective is to save human souls for eternity.

Guests of the conference, after its completion, will delight us in fraternal communion a few more days at Mountain View. On July 2, the feast day of St. John of Shanghai and San Francisco the miracle worker, will be the official opening of St. John Monastery located not far from our spiritual center in Cobleskill. 

All are welcome to take part in this historic event and share the spiritual joy of our sister church, taking part in a solemn feastday!

July 16-17, 2016 all are invited to participate in the liturgy celebrating the blessed memory of the Holy Royal Martyrs: Tsar Nicholas ll , Tsarina Alexandra, Tsarevich Alexis and princesses Olga, Tatiana, Maria and Anastasia. The royal family willingly accepted a martyr’s end, as we all know, and they stand as the head of the Holy New Martyrs and Confessors of Russia and it happens to be the feastday of our spiritual center at Mountainview. The service will be headed by our ruling bishop, Archbishop Andronik.
On the day of their memory, we'll talk about what a high example of Christian life the Holy Royal Martyrs were.  Recall that the royal family, in addition to the love of God, showed us a high example of love and service to others, and mutual love amonst their family.  The heart of every Russian cannot remain indifferent to the life and deeds of the Holy Family!

From the 5 to th 7 of August 2016 our annual Orthodox Family Conference will take place at our spiritual center of Mountain View.  As usual, we will gather with the participation of priests from our diocese to discuss topical issues of life on spirituality and family life, to share experiences and just spend time in pleasant conversation and prayer together with spiritually like-minded people.
