FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Orthodox Priest and Local Hip Hop Artist Collaborating to Empower Worcester’s Youth
Description of event:
“Making Tough Choices” is a two hour seminar in which local hip hop artist, Big O, and Orthodox Christian priest, Fr. Maximos McIntyre, will discuss the challenges facing today’s youth. The topics covered will include violence, the illusions and false promises of the streets, and drug use and its consequences. Time will be allotted for attendees to ask questions. This event is free and open to the public.
When asked why he wanted to organize this event Fr. Maximos stated: “I lost my father to the fast life and see today, perhaps more than ever, the tough circumstances kids are placed in. The deck is stacked against them from the moment they are born. We have to empower them with true knowledge, not the harsh ways of the world, to give them a fighting chance.”
Fr. Maximos McIntyre is the rector of Christ the Saviour Orthodox Mission in Worcester. The parish has been in formation for only one year, but is attracting area residents from all walks of life.
Big O, one of New England’s most popular hip hop artists, is from Worcester and has many full length releases and music videos to his credit. He has opened for such acts as Snoop Dogg and Jadakiss and is currently working on his next release.
