Diocesan Days 2012 - Remembering the Future Things

processionThis year marked the 16 gathering of the local Church in the West. The presiding hierarch, His Grace Bishop Maxim, convened the clergy, monastics, and laity of his diocese, affirming the Eucharistic dimension of the local Church of God; that the Liturgy itself is the center of our life and a very act of passage and ascension into the Kingdom of God and the Future Life.
The theme for the 2012 diocesan days pointed to this often forgotten dimension of the Church and her Eucharistic gathering. “Remembering the Future Things: an End even greater than the beginning,” points to the very function of theleitourgia as the gathering and the work of God’s Church to reveal that the true meaning of all things is in Christ - to actually become the manifestation of the new creation redeemed by Jesus Christ.
