Beautiful, holy, and compassionate message from His Eminence!
This year we were honored to have the Walk’s invocation given by His Eminence the Most Reverend Benjamin, Archbishop of San Francisco and the West of the Orthodox Church of America. His Eminence is the second Orthodox to give the invocation—Fr. Aris Metrakos of Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church (and a great friend to the Walk) was the first a few years back. As he introduced Archbishop Benjamin, Archbishop Cordileone noted that they were both named Archbishop in 2012—”God has plans here.”
The Orthodox Young Adults have a number of videos on their Facebook page. You can see His Eminence’s beautiful invocation here:
