2018 Antiochian Women's Project
This theme is a distillation of the sweeping vision which Metropolitan Joseph shared with us.
His Eminence spoke with farsighted boldness and passion about the many challenges and opportunities which lay before our God-protected Archdiocese. His vision is of a vigorous Church actively proclaiming our faith in Jesus Christ and lovingly ministering to the broken world around us.
This is already a description of the ministries in many of our parishes, but to keep moving forward while broadening our active ministries, we must reinforce and strengthen our foundations.
Antiochian Women Blog
The purpose of this blog is to reach out to the women in our diocese, and to encourage each other to read Orthodox articles written by clergy and laity from Orthodox perspective.
The blog will be updated every Sunday morning, and on the last Sunday of each month there will be an article written by one lady from our Antiochian Women’s group, which will discuss a personal story about “how God touches us in our life, and if there were time where we strongly felt or experienced His presence, love and providence”.
There is no doubt that we all have stories to share, and that would be a huge blessing to strengthen each other in our journey of faith, and to support each other.
Our beloved spiritual advisor, Father David Hovik is contributing great church Father quotes every Sunday, which will appear on the top of the blog.

Local Chapter Dues
Dues are normally sent to our local diocese chapter at the beginning of the year (January or February) for next year (money is due by November 1st every year). Annual dues for each parish are $250.00, of which $75.00 go to the North American Board Treasury. All churches are expected to have an active Antiochian Women chapter and to contribute to the diocese by paying these dues. Dues help cover administrative costs and most importantly, fund Archdiocese charitable works. In 2010, the Archdiocese gave over $5000.00 to charitable causes from our dues money.
About the Antiochian Women
The Antiochian Orthodox Christian Women of North America was founded in 1973 through the vision of His Eminence, Metropolitan PHILIP (Saliba) — since 2008, we simply refer to our organization at “The Antiochian Women.” We are one of the official organizations of the Antiochian Orthodox Christian Archdiocese of North America. Our purpose is to work among the women of our Archdiocese to develop a spirit of Christian leadership, awareness, and commitment; to foster a genuine expression of love and service for each other and to the world around us through works of charity; to instill a sense of companionship among our sisterhood; and to foster a deeper understanding of the heritage and traditions of the Orthodox Church.
