His Grace Bishop ANTOUN of the Diocese of Miami and the Southeast, Father Fouad Saba and all the clergy and faithful at Saint George Antiochian Orthodox Cathedral, Coral Gables, Florida, welcome you to South Florida for the 53rd Biennial Antiochian Archdiocese Convention. You will not want to miss all the exciting events in store for you July 23-30, 2017 !

The Grand Banquet will honor His Grace Bishop ANTOUN who has served the church for 80 years. Saint George Cathedral is humbled to have the opportunity to witness and share this historic and momentous occasion with the faithful of our Archdiocese. 

The AC2017 Convention Committee has designed wave after wave of family fellowship events including spiritual growth, educational workshops and wonderful family fun events and activities.  

Please note the following with regard to Ticket Book pricing:

Child meals are offered for the Thursday and Friday evening events to make it more affordable for families to attend all events. 

Ticket book pricing for Clergy and Clergy Wives, includes the Tuesday Clergy/Clergy Wives Breakfast – an additional $40 savings

Club Saint George (Daytime) includes lunch and will be offered Tuesday through Friday. Each day’s theme will focus on an Antiochian Saint. The teachings will be fun and interactive to educate our children in our faith. 

Kids Dinner and Social (Tuesday and Saturday Evenings) – These two events for children 4-12 are now included in the Child’s ticket book. It is our goal to allow parents the ability to attend the Order of Saint Ignatius Dinner as well as the Grand Banquet knowing their child is safe and enjoying an event specially created for their child(ren).  It is also a great opportunity for our children to get to know each other at an early age and develop friendships that will last a lifetime, as many of us did when we were this age.

Church Fathers Speak ~~~ Let God be the Judge

"Do not be irritated either with those who sin or those who offend; do not have a passion for noticing every sin in your neighbor, and for judging him, as we are in the habit of doing. Everyone shall give an answer to God for himself.

Everyone has a conscience; everyone hears God's Word, and knows God's Will either from books or from conversation with other people. Especially do not look with evil intention upon the sins of your elders, which do not regard you; to his own master he stands or falls.

Correct your own sins, amend your own life."    



Lives of the Saints

Holy Apostles Peter & Paul  - June 29th

PETER THE APOSTLE. His brother, the apostle Andrew the First-Called, brought Peter to Jesus. His name was Simon, but Jesus called him Peter, which means “rock”, from the Greek word petra. He said, “Thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build My Church.” Peter was at Jesus’ side throughout His ministry.

He saw Jesus walk on water and multiply the loaves, and he witnessed the Resurrection. Though he denied Jesus three times, he became a fearless and powerful preacher. His first teaching after Pentecost converted three thousand people. He preached in Palestine, Asia Minor, Italy, Samaria, Caesarea, Joppa, and Lydia. He became the first Bishop of Antioch. He could heal the sick and raise the dead. Even his shadow could heal. Peter, Paul, and Barnabas pulled Jerusalem out of a famine. A nemesis of his was Simon the Magician, a servant of the devil and friend to Emperor Nero.

He defeated Simon, but Nero had Peter crucified. He went joyfully to his death and asked that he be crucified upside down since he was unworthy to die as his Master. Nero ended his life by suicide
