The events for the Annunciation of the Virgin Mary, which are dedicated to Orthodox women and mothers, were concluded on Sunday, March 28 in all parishes of the Metropolis of Nigeria.
As part of these events, an online meeting of women from the Parish of the Dormition of the Virgin Mary and other parishes with women from the USA took place on March 24, in cooperation with the Metropolis and the OCMC.
This is the beginning of a series of online meetings organized by the Metropolis for women, youth and clergy.
In his remarks, Metropolitan Alexandros expressed blessed gratitude to Fr. Martin Ritsi (President of OCMC), Presbytera Renee Ritsi, Andrew Lekos and the entire OCMC team for their kindness throughout the years and their unrelenting love and dedication to mission and evangelism across the world.
During the Divine Liturgy, the Metropolitan of Nigeria prayed and invited all women to rise to the height of their potentials, becoming ‘mothers’ to the child Christ after the likeness of the Virgin Mary and bringing God and humanity in a divine synergy for the salvation of our souls.
