Pan Orthodox Clergy Brotherhood of South Florida

On June 28th, La Iglesia Ortodoxa de los Santos Apóstoles in Miami Lakes will be hosting a Spanish-language retreat at the Orthodox Cathedral of Christ the Saviour, in anticipation of the celebrations of Ss. Peter and Paul, and the Synaxis of the Holy Apostles.

Guest speakers will be Frs. Aristidis Arizi and Ernesto Ríos.

Please find attached Iglesia flyer for the event, and announce it to your parishioners; it’s a wonderful opportunity for Spanish speakers to experience (and share with others!) the Orthodox and Apostolic witness of Christ in their language!

All area clergy have the blessing of His Eminence, Archbishop Nikon, to concelebrate, provided they also have their own bishops’ blessing. The liturgy will be primarily in Spanish.

Should you have any questions, please feel free to contact Fr. David Wooten at 954-937-6316.

¡Muchas Gracias!

Fr. David
