The Vine & Crossroads
Newsletter is a new endeavor which will be sent out through e-mail for those who we
hope will be receptive to our endeavors to bring you information &
news concerning not only our Orthodox Catholic Christian Faith,
but concerning all that may have to do with your Religious, Civil

Jurisdiction or even our faith!
We feel that when informed, you can make
better decisions toward maintaining your rights of religious

depending on the country in which you reside, even if it be a State
or Province of that country; you may find you will eventually be
limited from worshiping and speaking about your faith!

Our Vladyka +Thaddeus (Metropolitan
Archbishop) has granted us permission to provide this endeavor for
you to review and comment on with hopes that you will join with us
in providing current information and news...
