A Letter from the Secretary of the Synod of Bishops to the Chairman of the Assembly of Canonical Bishops in North and Central America

On January 15 of this year the official website of the Russian Orthodox Church Outside of Russia published a Letter from the Secretary of her Synod of Bishops, His Eminence Archbishop Kyrill. This Letter is addressed to the Chairman of the Assembly of Canonical Bishops in North and Central America, His Eminence Archbishop Demetrios.

The Assembly of Canonical Bishops in North and Central America is “one of twelve bishops' assemblies which have been established in different geographical regions throughout the world. It is made up of all the active, canonical Orthodox bishops of North and Central America, of every jurisdiction." See the Assembly's official website.

The fourth and latest Assembly was held in Chicago, IL, from September 17 to 19, 2013. His Eminence Archbishop Kyrill's Letter is the response of the Synod of Bishops of the Russian Orthodox Church Outside of Russia to that meeting.

A gallery of photos from the Assembly which includes the participation of our bishops may be found here.
