MTP at 42nd Biennial Greek Orthodox Clergy-Laity Congress – A Resounding Success!

MOUNT THABOR PUBLISHING  joined the Exhibitors at the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese’s 42nd Biennial Clergy-Laity Congress in Philadelphia from July 6 through 9, 2014.

Armed with its 12 quality publications and its first ever Catalogue, MTP was well-received by clergy and lay folk alike from all over North America and beyond.

A special feature of the MTP booth was signed copies of Dr. Christopher Veniamin’s newly reprinted Saint Gregory Palamas: The Homilies and The Orthodox Understanding of Salvation: “Theosis” in Scripture and Tradition.

Here are just some of the wonderful people we met at the Congress:-
