An opportunity for open dialogue on the future of the church.
From June to August 2018, His Eminence Metropolitan Nathanael conducted a Listening Tour of the towns and cities of six states composing the Metropolis of Chicago. As a new Metropolitan, His Eminence was eager to meet parishioners, answer questions, understand concerns, and outline his vision for the church’s ministry in the Midwest. As a result of specific insights and recommendations heard on the Listening Tour, new policies and programs were created by the Metropolis, including a Metropolis of Chicago Junior Board among other outcomes.
Given the positive receptivity of the Listening Tour, His Eminence committed to relaunching the Listening Tour in the future as a means of maintaining relationships with parishioners throughout the Metropolis.
