Only if the coronavirus doesn't derail this conference.

The conference will feature dozens of clergy and laypeople from throughout the nation who are Spanish speakers or who have experience with Spanish-speaking communities.  Unique to a Greek Orthodox gathering, worship services will be conducted entirely in Spanish.

Being that it's scheduled in Florida, probably.

Some are native speakers (like a schoolmate of mine from Holy Cross who spoke fluent Greek, Albanian, English, Spanish, and Italian before coming to Brookline) and some have developed the skill over time (like a semi-retired priest in our Metropolis who adopted a child from Central America and who has been doing missionary work in Guatemala for years).
