Hierarchs Confirm Commitment to Assembly, Announce Plans for Assembly V

On Tuesday, January 28, the Executive Committee of the Assembly of Canonical Orthodox Bishops of North and Central America convened. Along with the members of the Executive Committee, the first hierarchs of all jurisdictions were invited to participate. In a spirit of mutual respect and fraternal love in Christ, the bishops reconfirmed their commitment to the Assembly process. They noted with concern the temporary withdrawal from the Assembly of the hierarchs of the Patriarchate of Antioch, and expressed their brotherly commitment to their full restoration to the Assembly at the earliest possible time.

The hierarchs also discussed the Assembly’s fifth annual meeting, which is scheduled for September 16-18, 2014 in Dallas, TX. Assembly V will open with a pan-Orthodox gathering on the evening of September 15 for all clergy and laity in the area.
