Catalina Finck and Father Barnabas represented St. Michael’s at the 19th All-American Council, with the theme "For the Life of the World" from Protopresbyter Alexander Schmemann's book by the same name. It was indeed a fruitful AAC! Everyone is encouraged to visit the Orthodox Church in America’s web site, Ancient Faith Radio, or the Orthodox Church in America’s Facebook page to listen and to see the ongoing work of our Orthodox Church.
Catalina and Fr. Barnabas gave a report to the parish during coffee hour on Sunday, August 19th. (Anyone with additional questions should feel free to contact them.) There are also printed materials from the AAC on a table in the entranceway to the fellowship hall.
Below are links to videos of the AAC. You do not need to set up a FaceBook account to view them. (When the window pops up asking you to log in or sign up, just click on the link that says "Not Now".)
