Parish Day & Convention 2015
The 2015 Houston Orthodox Convention and St. Thomas Parish Day celebrations were held from March 6 - March 8, 2015. Our chief celebrant this year was Rev. Fr. Rajesh K. John, Vicar of St. Gregorios Orthodox Church Houston and the Vice-President of Martha Mariam Vanitha Samajam for the Diocese of South-West America. It was wonderful to see such a great gathering of people all throughout the weekend to come hear Achen’s thought-provoking and fruitful words.
Throughout the convention messages, Achen reflected on the lives of various figures in the Old Testament, and spoke of how we can look to them to bring a change to our own lives, especially in the midst of this Great Lent.
The weekend’s festivities ended with Holy Qurbana on Sunday, and lunch was prepared for all those who attended. We thank Achen and Achen's family for joining us this year and we continue to pray for their ministry.
