Metropolitan Nicholas To Speak On The Come Receive the Light Orthodox Christian Radio Program Holy Saturday April 26, 2003

April 1, 2003

JOHNSTOWN, PA. A segment of the weekly Orthodox Christian radio program Come Receive the Light was recorded at the Diocesan Chancery yesterday. His Eminence, Metropolitan Nicholas, was invited to participate in the Paschal Program by Father Christopher Metropulos, Pastor of St. Demetrios Greek Orthodox Church of  Fort Lauderdale, Florida, the founder and editor of the radio program. His Eminence will be joined on the program by His Eminence, Archbishop Demetrios of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America and Metropolitan Herman of the Orthodox Church in America.

Come Receive The Light" was born from one South Florida church's desire to bring the Greek Orthodox faith to the homebound and to supplement the weekly worship of the faithful. But in just seven years, it has become so much more: a weekly ministry that brings its listeners "food for the soul." Along the way, the program has exploded in popularity - and listeners. Starting December. 04, 1996, a modest program that began as a parish ministry now sends its signal to Orthodox Christians of all nationalities across the Southeastern U.S. The Fort Lauderdale, Fla.-based radio show is now the farthest reaching program of its kind in the United States, offering spiritual enlightenment to listeners tuning in and callers phoning in as clergymen and lay theologians discuss contemporary, moral and religious issues that touch our everyday lives. "This is truly a unique show. No one else in the country has a show with such a wide reach. It has been truly blessed by God with an incredible staff of volunteers." said Father Christopher Metropulos, the program's founder.

Be sure to tune in to this uplifting and spiritual program as we bring you Pascha Greetings from our Hierarchs as we prepare for the Glorious Resurrection and the receiving of the Light of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ singing "Come ye, take light from the Light that is never overtaken by night. Come, glorify the Christ, risen from the dead."
