A Message from His Eminence on the Report:

Essentially, our 2022 Annual Impact Report is a testament to many of our achievements, none of which would have been possible without the efforts of our Metropolis team—our staff and volunteers, our clergy and laity. I am deeply inspired by what we may achieve in the years ahead as a community united and grounded in Christ.”
