North American Hierarchs

This past week hierarchs from all Orthodox jurisdictions met in Chicago for, I believe, their third joint meeting so far as the Assembly of Canonical Orthodox Bishops. There were forty three in all. They met for three days and certainly the highlight of the gathering was on Tuesday, September 11th, the feast day of the Beheading of St. John the Baptist according to the church’s calendar, when they all attended Divine Liturgy at the Holy Resurrection Serbian Orthodox Cathedral in Chicago. Above is a picture of Archbishop Demetrios and my own diocesan bishop, Bishop Mitrophan at the Memorial service following the liturgy for all innocents killed on 9/11.

The following statement was issued regarding the meeting.
