Episcopal Assembly completes parish directory

A major promise of the Episcopal Assembly was a comprehensive directory of parishes, priests, deacons, and hierarchs. With the addition of the parishes of the Patriarchate of Georgia the parish listing is now complete. I'm sure this - and a number of other related topics - will be discussed in the upcoming May meeting.

(Episcopal Assembly) - With the addition of the parish communities of the Patriarchate of Georgia resident in the United States, the Directory of Parishes used by the Assembly of Bishops now includes all of the parishes of the twelve jurisdictions which participate in the Assembly. These twelve jurisdictions are as follows:
  • Albanian Archdiocese
  • Antiochian Orthodox Archdiocese
  • Bulgarian Orthodox Church
  • Carpatho-Russian Church
  • Georgian Patriarchate
  • Greek Orthodox Archdiocese
  • Moscow Patriarchate
  • Orthodox Church in America
  • Romanian Orthodox Archdiocese
  • Russian Orthodox Church outside of Russia
  • Serbian Orthodox Church
  • Ukrainian Orthodox Church
With this step complete, the Parish Directory, originally built for the now-defunct SCOBA, is ready to be moved to the website of the Assembly of Bishops and be maintained and updated by the Assembly's Committee for Canonical Affairs.
