"This Handbook is a unique resource that has no precedent in our Church in America. For the first time, a comprehensive collection of pastoral correspondence has been brought together to assist the ministries and administrative work of parishes.
The same Handbook is also highly informative. A review of its contents reveals the tremendous breadth of activity within our parishes throughout the Archdiocese. From letters for hierarchs and clergy, elected and local officials, parish councils, church schools, stewardship, and the sacramental, philanthropic and social ministries of the local parish, this book offers a glimpse into the sacred and vital service that our clergy and laity are conducting each and every day.This Handbook constitutes a remarkable guide for pastoral correspondence. It will assist many of our clergy and parish leaders as a ready resource for effective and timely communication. It will also assist parishes in planning regular activities and special events so that the witness of our Orthodox faith is offered through every manner of correspondence and in every possible way."
