This year marks the 38th anniversary of our Metropolis Ministry Awards Ceremony, where we will gather on Sunday, June 9th to honor the faithful, loving, and dedicated ministry offered by the Clergy and Laity of our 62 parishes throughout New England. This family celebration, which hosts over 800 guests annually, is one of the most enjoyable evenings of the entire year as the Metropolis recognizes and thanks the faithful stewards of our local parishes for their dedicated service.  It is an evening of much warmth and love.

This year also marks both the 40th anniversary of the Enthronement of His Eminence Metropolitan Methodios as the Metropolitan of Boston, as well as the 50th anniversary of his ordination to the Holy Priesthood. As we reflect upon these past four decades, we thank Almighty God for the blessings He has bestowed upon us all during our Metropolitan’s Archpastoral ministry.

On behalf of our Metropolitan, I am pleased to inform you that this year’s Awards Dinner will be held again at Gillette Stadium in Foxboro—the Home of the New England Patriots. Please reserve Sunday, June 9, on your calendar and invite the participation of the stewards of your Community.

His Eminence encourages EVERY Community to select one individual to be honored this year, as we thank them for their faithful service to the Church.

Thank you very much for your immediate attention to these details surrounding the upcoming Ministry Awards Celebration on June 9 at Gillette Stadium in Foxboro, MA. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me directly. Extending the blessings and prayers of our Metropolitan for a spiritually rewarding Lenten journey, I remain,

With love in the Lord,
Father Ted
