The Very Reverend and Reverend Clergy Esteemed Members of the Metropolitan Council, Esteemed Members of the Parish Councils, Esteemed Members of the Philoptochos Sisterhood of the Greek Orthodox Metropolis of New Jersey My Beloved, I pray that this letter finds all of you well and spiritually sound. Please be advised that due to impending effects of Hurricane Florence along the eastern coast of the United States, I have made the most difficult decision to CANCEL the Annual Greek Orthodox Metropolis of New Jersey Holy Cross Celebration and Blessing of the Waters scheduled for this Sunday, September 16, 2018 in Asbury Park. I request that each of you please immediately inform your parishioners of the cancellation of this Metropolis Event by sending a notice through your parish email listserv, through your parish robo call system and by placing an announcement on your parish website.
Praying that our loving Lord continues to bless all of you, I remain With Paternal Love and Blessings,
† E V A N G E L O S Metropolitan of New Jersey
