Background of the Archangel Michael Award
The Archangel Michael Feast was prayerfully conceived by His Eminence Metropolitan Alexios upon His arrival to Atalanta, as the annual double feast of the Metropolitan family. Since 1998, the Metropolitan familty comes together in Atlanta on the weekend of, prior to, or following the November 18th Feast of the Archangels Michael and Gabriel. It is to honor and celebrate our Patron Saint and the lives of one adult and one youth/young adult from each parish, who are the living examples of the Orthodox Christian life and journey to Theosis. By extension, this special Metropolitan feast is also the annual Metropolitan celebration and thanksgiving for all devout stewards of faith, time and talent, “Who first give themselves to the Lord by the will of God.”
