January Update on St. George/Holy Ghost Conversations - 01/20/2021

 

Update from the Jan 11, 2021 Joint Committe Meeting:   Holy Ghost - St. George Committee Minutes 2021-Jan-11 

 

Update from Dec, 7, 2020 Meeting:  Over the last year or so, Holy Ghost Church in Bridgeport and St. George Church in Trumbull have been having conversations about a possible unification.  COVID has interfered with this exploration, but a joint committee of the two parishes is still meeting periodically via Zoom under the chairmanship of Fr. John Kreta, Chancellor of the Diocese of New England, with the participation of Father Joseph Gallick, General Secretary of the Albanian Archdiocese.

On December 7, 2020, participating via a Zoom meeting, the two committees, agreed on the following action steps:

- Father Kreta will update Metropolitan Tikhon, who now oversees both dioceses as locum tenens, and seek his approval for our continuing efforts.

- A summary of efforts thus far will be sent to the February meetings of the Diocesan Councils of the Albanian Archdiocese and the Diocese of New England.

- A summary of our meeting is to be included in the parish bulletin of both parishes.

- When pandemic conditions improve, we will explore a way to return to celebrating the Divine Liturgy together once a month.
