Orthodox churches to sponsor concert to benefit ZOE for Life!

DETROIT, MI [COCC] — The Council of Orthodox Christian Churches of Metropolitan Detroit (COCC) will sponsor a concert to benefit ZOE for Life! on Sunday, September 15, 2013 at 6:00 p.m. at Saint George Romanian Orthodox Cathedral, 18405 W. Nine Mile Road, Southfield, MI.

The concert program will consist of Orthodox hymns and songs of worship performed by the Orthodox Choir of Metropolitan Detroit conducted by Matushka Victoria Kopistiansky, artistic director.

Orthodox churches to sponsor concert to benefit ZOE for Life!“Orthodox parishes across Detroit reach out to help others in many ways, and the COCC is expanding these efforts through the treasure of our music to bring greater awareness of our community and mission,” said Subdeacon John E. Lazar, COCC president.  “This concert allows us to extend our hands and hearts to aid those in need, and make at least a small difference through needed funds and the spirit of Christian love.”

The concert will be open to the general public free of charge.  Donations will be collected to support ZOE for Life!  Fellowship will follow the concert.

Directions to the cathedral are available at www.sgroc.org.
