On November 21, we were blessed with the opportunity to have Father Justin Matthews join us for the day. He is the Executive Director and CEO of FOCUS North America and parish priest of St. Mary of Egypt in Kansas City.

Father Justin

Father Justin co-celebrated the first service and provided a very moving sermon with a theme based on Jesus' direction to us that we should "Go" in the context of actually living and experiencing our faith as Christ had done. This was a perfect transition to Father Justin's presentation on FOCUS, which stands for Fellowship of Orthodox Christians United to Serve.

There is a desire among the Chicago Orthodox faithful to establish a FOCUS mission. This will begin with a volunteer effort to help the homeless by cooking, delivering and servinge meals.
