Five bishops to bless Parma, OH's ZOE House March 4

PARMA, OH [MW Diocese Communications] -- His Grace, Bishop Paul of Chicago and the Midwest will be one of five hierarchs who will bless the new ZOE House of ZOE for Life in Parma's original post office at 5454 State Road during its open house on Friday, March 4, 2016.  The open house will begin at 6:30 p.m. with the blessing slated to take place at 7:00 p.m.

Headquartered in Cleveland Heights, OH, ZOE for Life is a non-profit Orthodox Christian ministry that helps women during and after crisis pregnancies, offers pure living resources and retreats, and assists Orthodox Christian couples seeking to expand their families through adoption.  The agency, which is endorsed by the Assembly of Canonical Orthodox Bishops of the USA, offers its services at ZOE House, into which it moved at the end of December.

Also slated to bless the house are HIs Eminence, Metropolitan Savas of the Greek Orthodox Metropolis of Pittsburgh; His Eminence, Archbishop Nathaniel of Detroit and the Romanian Episcopate [OCA], His Grace, Bishop Daniel of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the USA, and His Grace, Bishop Gregory of Nyssa of the American Carpatho-Russian Orthodox Diocese of the USA.

"The Orthodox people are working together in unity, under the loving guidance of our metropolitans, bishops and clergy," said Paula Kappos, ZOE for Life President,

ZOE House occupies two-thirds of the post office's space, Ms. Kappos said.  With approximately 3,000 square feet, the new facility provides space for meetings, classes, prayer circles and other healing ministries. It is on the bus line and close to the freeway, occupying a single floor for easy access to pregnant women and children.

"The new facility will also allow ZOE for Life to pursue its plan to create a Women's Center to provide limited obstetrical ultrasounds, peer counseling, needed supplements and professional referrals to ensure that crisis pregnancies aren't dangerous one," Ms. Kappos added.  "We are incredibly excited about what God is doing with ZOE for Life and are looking forward to whatever else He might have in store."
