Cardinal Seán Expresses His Gratitude to Metropolitan Methodios and the Faithful of the Metropolis of Boston

 

His Eminence Cardinal Seán of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Boston expressed his thanks to His Eminence Metropolitan Methodios and all the faithful of the Greek Orthodox Metropolis of Boston for their generosity in providing over 5,800 meals to brethren in need in the Greater Boston area. 

 

"Hello and welcome!

This week, I have asked Father Jonathan Gaspar to share a reflection with you on the great gift of the Eucharist in our lives, especially in relation to the Year of the Eucharist we are now celebrating within the archdiocese.

However, before that, I want to take a moment to express our gratitude to His Eminence Metropolitan Methodios and the people of the Greek Orthodox Metropolis of Boston for generously delivering more than 5,800 meals to people in need in Greater Boston last week. 

On Tuesday, His Eminence visited the  Catholic Charities St. Ambrose Family Inn in Dorchester. This is a shelter that assists families in finding safe and affordable housing, and prepares families to live successfully and independently in their own apartments. While families stay at the Inn, they are provided with housing search assistance, social work services, comfortable rooms and nutritious meals.

The President of the Metropolis, Philoptochos Athena Kalyvas, and Board Member Georgia Lagadinos, also visited Upham’s Corner Health Center, which provides community-based health and social services to the residents of North Dorchester and adjacent neighborhoods.​ In addition to the meals delivered to food banks and homeless shelters, over 2,000 meals have also been delivered to health care workers throughout the major hospitals in the Greater Boston area.

Now, I give you Father Gaspar but, before I go, I want to wish you all a safe and happy Independence Day!"

– Cardinal Seán
