PENTECOST: Archpastoral Letter from Archbishop Michael

His Eminence, Archbishop Michael has issued an Archpastoral Letter to the faithful of the diocese for the Feast-Day of Holy Pentecost celebrated on 16 June 2019. In part, he writes:  "As we celebrate the Great Feast of Pentecost this year, the Descent of the Holy Spirit upon the Apostles, the Revelation of the Holy Trinity, and the Birthday of the Orthodox Church, each of us individually and all of us together should reflect upon all that the Triune God has given us."
