On Saturday, Fr. Justin made a presentation to an attentive group in the parish hall on the necessity of working with and supporting the working poor. Fr. Justin served the Divine Liturgy with Fr. Peter Preble, pastor of the parish and preached the sermon continuing the theme he laid out on Saturday.
After Liturgy, Fr. Justin met with Mr. Walter Haddad, president of the Council of Eastern Orthodox Churches of Worcester for a tour of the Holy Trinity Nursing and Rehabilitation Center, a project of the Council. After the tour Fr. Justin, Fr. Peter and Mr. Haddad had a discussion of how FOCUS could help support the existing programs of Council Churches.
On Monday a brief meeting with area clergy was held before Fr. Justin left to return to Kansas City.
When asked about the conference Fr. Peter had this to say, “We are very grateful for the work of FOCUS and thankful for Fr. Justin giving of his time to come and spread the good news of all that FOCUS is doing for the working poor.”
