BURBANK, IL [DOM Communications] — With the blessing of His Eminence, Archbishop Paul, the 60th Assembly of the Diocese of the Midwest will be held at our very own Archangel Michael Church, located in Broadview Heights in the Greater Cleveland Area of Ohio. This year there will be a full, rich program extending the full three days.
We are honored to be joined this year by a guest presenter, the Very Reverend Archpriest Stephan Meholick, Rector of Saint Nicholas Church in Marin County, California. Father Stephan will be offering a spiritual reflection regarding Sanctification of Time.
The initial Plenary Session, including the Address of the Archbishop, will take place on the evening of Monday, 11 October. Registrants from regions of the Diocese other than Cleveland are urged to arrive no later than 5:00 p.m. on 11 October, and to schedule departing flights for no earlier than 2:00 p.m. on Wednesday, 13 October. Cleveland Hopkins International Airport is the closest airport to the Assembly site. Flights are filling up quickly, so please secure these arrangements as soon as possible.
The registration fee for this year’s Assembly is $200.00 per delegate or observer. Rectors and Priests-in-Charge, please register yourself and your parish delegates and observers at https://reporting.domoca.org/.
Each parish should register its assigned priests and deacons, plus an equal number of lay delegates. One lay delegate is allowed from each parish not having an assigned priest.
