One of the things dearest to Metropolitan Philip's heart was the care of his clergy and their wives during the winter years of their lives so that they could live with dignity. In light of that, he wanted memorial donations to be given to the Clergy Retirement Fund of the Archdiocese. Donations received through this simple and secure online donation form will go to benefit the Fund.

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing into eternal life of our father and chief shepherd,His Eminence, Metropolitan PHILIP Wednesday night around 8:30pm. Please refer to antiochian.org for details as they become available. May his memory be eternal and may his soul rest with the saints.

Let Us All Pray For Their Safe Return

Rejoicing at Release of Captive Nuns

On the Sunday of Orthodoxy, March 9, 2014, multiple media outlets including a leading newspaper in Lebanon, The Daily Star, reported that the thirteen nuns held in captivity by Syrian rebels for over three months were freed late in the day, as a result of Lebanese and Qatari mediation. Officers from Lebanon's General Security received the nuns on the outskirts of the Lebanese town of Arsal. 

Parishioners and clergy at the Archdiocese's mother cathedral, St. Nicholas Antiochian Orthodox Cathedral in Brooklyn, NY, received the joyous news during the Hierarchical Divine Liturgy in which Bishop Nicholas was presiding. "We learned of the release just prior to commencing Holy Communion, and began ringing the bells of the Cathedral loudly, chanting 'O Lord, save Thy people' and 'To Thee the Champion Leader,'" says Archpriest Thomas Zain, Vicar-General of the Antiochian Archdiocese. An English translation of a statement from His Beatitude John X, Patriarch of Antioch, is being prepared by the Greek Orthodox Patriarchate of Antioch and All the East

"Congratulations. The nuns are now in the custody of General Security and are on their way to Jdaidet Yabouss," General Security chief Major General Abbas Ibrahim announced, while accompanied by Hussein Makhlouf, the governor of rural Damascus. The nuns were kidnapped in early December from the ancient Monastery of St. Thecla (Mar Taqla) in Maaloula, a city north of Damascus that has been the scene of fierce fighting during Syria's civil war.

Ancient Faith Radio announced the release with audio coverage from Kevin Allen, here
