Episcopal Assembly meeting in October

NEW YORK (EA) – The Assembly of Canonical Orthodox Bishops of the United States of America announced that its 10th Annual Assembly of Bishops Meeting will be held October 2-5, 2021 in Washington D.C. The Assembly will also be hosting a charity networking event to hear the voices of the youth and young adults while assembling hygiene kits for those in need. The event will kick-off at 5:00 PM EDT on Sunday, October 3, 2021 and will be open to the public.



  1. I sure hope they discuss the damage that was done by implementing the same virus mandates that the gov't implemented. Two things came out of church mandates.First,it scattered people to other jurisdictions.Second, people stop attending church.Livestreaming was another big mistake.

  2. Why not a priority of bringing the non canonical s onto the fold? Wouldn't Jesus go after the lost sheep? Shouldn't they?

    1. In principle, bringing back the non-canonical is a good idea, as long as the non-canonical people genuinely repent and wish to be a part of the canonical Orthodox church. What happened in Ukraine was a farce, because it involved ignoring the existing canonical Ukrainian Orthodox Church to create a union of schismatic church bodies. The next step should have been to reunify the schismatics with Metropolitan Onuphry and the existing UOC, with any schismatic hierarchs and clergy repenting for going into schism and/or any other illegitimate acts committed while schismatic. After examination, any formerly non-canonical clergy who prove worthy can be regularized either by being ordained by a proper bishop, or by being received into the Church in the rank from which they left. If that process is followed, I have no problem with non-canonical parishes and jurisdictions coming back to the Church.
