If there are people who are known throughout the diocese that are in need of prayer, please submit their names to Bishop Paul

As we begin the Great Fast, I ask your forgiveness for my failing to lead by example in the areas of intercessory prayer, and soberness. Instead I give my self over to laziness and slothfulness. I am a couch potato and that behavior is sinful. You deserve better from me. Pray for me that the Lord will break through and conquer my self-will that rules my life at times. Asking your prayers, the unworthy Bishop Paul.

Parish rectors, and priests-in-charge you need to submit your yearly compliance report with the OCA’s Sexual Misconduct Guidelines for 2017 ASAP. This is important, and we need to have 100% compliance. You can download the report by clicking on this link:
