Metropolitan's Message


DSWA/C/04/2015 February 25, 2015

"Urshlem" Diocesan Center- Beasley, Texas

Blessings to our Cor-Episcopoi, Priests, Deacons, Office bearers and all the faithful of our Diocese!


Dearly Beloved,

We have once again come upon the period of the Great Lent. Jesus Christ begins his public ministry
preceded by a fast that follows the fast of the great prophets Moses and Elijah who also fasted in the
wilderness for forty days. The fast prepared Christ for His victory over Satan, ultimately allowing Him to
overcome the temptations of Satan and defeat death by His own death. In addition to the forty days set
apart for fasting, the Holy Church adds an additional ten days to focus on the passion of Christ that leads
us to the ultimate victory seen in the power of the Holy Resurrection.

A few months prior, we had written to you concerning our vision to inaugurate a Summer Youth Camp at Urshlem Diocesan Center in an effort to comprehensively address the spiritual needs of our students. This camp would be specifically designed in a way that utilizes the diverse resources unique to our Church as well as the new facilities at the Diocesan Center for the benefit of our youth.
