For people wondering what is an Orthodox response to the murder of George Floyd and racial injustice in the United States of America, this is a good place to begin.

Since 1994 Orthodox Christians have been gathering annually to share the riches of the Orthodox Church and her experience in Africa from ancient times. From early Christian times through the times of the catacomb martyrs, the founding of monasticism, and the early teachers, the African Christians were very influential. The experience of martyrs during slavery in many ways is like a reenactment of the early catacomb experience. Furthermore, African American Orthodox Christians and other Orthodox Christians throughout the country have been meeting to work on issues of racial reconciliation in these conferences.

This year, due to COVID-19, many will be able to participate virtually. This will enable people to share in the sessions and discussions that, due to travel limitations, were unable to in the past. To register or find out more, go to:
