Register Today! Archdiocese Convention in July Will be Historic






St. Mary Orthodox Church in Cambridge, Massachusetts is proud to host this year's biennial Antiochian Archdiocese Convention from July 19 through July 26, 2015, in beautiful Boston, Massachusetts. This historic city's significance in American history is a fitting backdrop as we celebrate our own history of Orthodoxy in America, the 100th anniversary of the falling asleep of St. Raphael of Brooklyn. Making this event even more historic will be the presence of his Beatitude John X, Patriarch of Antioch and All the East, presiding, and the first North American Archdiocese Convention under his Eminence Metropolitan Joseph.

For nearly two years, committees have been hard at work to make Boston 2015 one of the most memorable in recent history with something for everyone. Events planned include: An Enchanting Evening Over Boston, Enliven to Christ, a Night to Celebrate our Archdiocese, the Hafli, Teen Dinner, the Grand Banquet and more — culminating in the Patriarchal Divine Liturgy concelebrated by His Beatitude John X, His Eminence Metropolitan Joseph, and our Diocesan Bishops!

Summertime in Boston is especially ideal for kids and families. The Kids Club and Tween Club will have daily activities on and off site, including trips to renowned local museums (registration is required). Young adult events are being coordinated for those interested in exploring the city. If you're a sports fan, the hotel is within short walking distance to world famous Fenway Park. If you'd rather stay and reconnect with friends and family, the hotel has the perfect amenities to enjoy fellowship and fun as well.

Rooms at the Boston Sheraton are nearly sold out, so book your reservation quickly! Registration for many events is also limited, and early-bird pricing ends soon, so we encourage you to register online today!
