Pan-Orthodox Sanctity of Life Prayer Service and Presentation

 

On Sunday, January 25th, 2009 beginning at 6.00 pm, at St. George Antiochian Orthodox Church in Cicero, IL, took place a Pan-Orthodox Sanctity of Life Prayer Service. In attendance were His Eminence Metropolitan Iakovos from the Greek Metropolis of Chicago, His Eminence Archbishop Nicolae, His Grace Bishop Demetrios of Mokissos, Auxiliary Bishop to Metropolitan Iakovos, clergy and faithful from the Orthodox parishes in the Chicago area. The Service included prayers for all those confronted with the prospect of abortion, euthanasia, capital punishment, for those suffering from terminal illnesses and for their families.

 

After the Service, Miss Nikolia Rallis made a presentation on the work of Orthodox Christians for life – Chicago and Northwestern Students for Life Associations. Nikolia became involved with this pro-life movement after attending the March for Life in Washington in January 2005. Her campus involvement includes volunteering at the Women’s Center (a crisis pregnancy center), bringing speakers to campus, and praying outside abortion mills. Nikolia is co-founder of Orthodox Christian Youth for Life – Chicago and president of Northwestern Students for Life.

 

The event was sponsored by the Orthodox Christian Clergy Association of Greater Chicago and is meant to be an annual gathering.
