2017 Antiochian Women's Project
This theme is a distillation of the sweeping vision which Metropolitan Joseph readily shared with us at the summer meetings in July, 2016.
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.

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.

"The goal of reading is the application, in our lives, of what we read. Not to learn it by heart, but to take it to heart. Not to practice using our tongues, but to be able to receive the tongues of fire and to live the mysteries of God." -- Elder Paisios the Athonite
