The 85th annual national convention of the Fellowship of Orthodox Christians in America [FOCA] was held in Alexandria VA over the Labor Day weekend. Several hundred members and guests were in attendance. The liturgical celebrations were led by His Beatitude, Metropolitan Jonah, and His Grace, Bishop Michael of New York and New Jersey. Both hierarchs offered words of inspiration at the banquet that followed the Sunday Divine Liturgy.
Founded in 1927 as the Federated Russian Orthodox Clubs, the FOCA is officially affiliated with the Orthodox Church in America. Visit orthodoxfellowship.org for more information.
