Have a seat at the table and a voice to influence the future and vision of the Cleveland area Ruthenian Byzantine churches.
We love our churches. Each parish has history that spans generations. We, our parents and benefactors have worked hard for our churches. To simply suppress or merge it without any real dialogue is simply not right. We have a duty to protect our churches.
Our churches are not just buildings, they are parishes and places for our parish families to worship and gather. The futures of these parishes must be determined carefully, thoughtfully, prayerfully and with the involvement of the parishioners.
We are not anti-Bishop or anti-Eparchy. We are not vindictive or hostile. We are well organized and professional. We look forward to working with the Bishop and be treated with equal respect.
We are all brothers and sisters in Christ.
