Upcoming Events


THE ORDER OF ST. IGNATIUS

THE ORDER OF ST. IGNATIUS:  Metropolitan Philip Saliba saw the need to challenge the laity of our Antiochian Archdiocese to be true disciples of Christ and enter a new dimension of service.  The Order, established in 1976, financially supports national and international programs, departments and charitable works of the Antiochian Archdiocese. More than 1/3 of the Archdiocese budget comes from the Order of St. Ignatius and many programs are completely funded by the Order; which has provided over $16 million to over 20 programs.  Included are:
