On June 17th and 18th, 2022, the inaugural St. Panteleimon Society conference was held at Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church in Nashville, TN. The Very Reverend Protopresbyter Father Stavros Kofinas, Coordinator for the Network of Pastoral Healthcare of the Ecumenical Patriarchate, spoke at the conference. His talk, entitled Hope for the Caregiver, addressed many of the challenges and concerns of health care providers, especially after the COVID crisis. Over twenty participants attended, representing the parishes of St. John Antiochian Church in Franklin, St. John Chrysostom in Nashville and Annunciation in Memphis. The conference allowed attendees to discuss some of their struggles over the last few years and contemplate multiple thought-provoking ideas from Fr. Stavros.
Thank you to Fr. Stavros and Presvytera Georgia for attending and all of those who were able to participate.
