Antiochian Bishops in Houston


On October 18th, following the Antiochian Synod of Bishops meeting (10/16) and the meeting of the Board of Trustees for the Antiochian Orthodox Christian Archdiocese (10/17), Hierarchical Liturgy was served at St George Church; in addition to visiting priests and deacons, three hierarchs celebrated: Metropolitan PHILIP, Bishop ANTOUN, and Bishop ALEXANDER.

Listen to the Hierarchical Liturgy here.

Here’s some pics, thanks to Hatem Khalaf, taken during the service …
