The prayers of our faithful for safe travel and fruitful deliberations inspired by the Holy Spirit are requested.

    Who are the members of the “Executive Committee”?
    According to the Assembly’s website, the “officers” of the Assembly are:
    Archbishop Demetrios of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese, Chairman;
    Metropolitan Joseph of the Antiochian Archdiocese, First Vice-Chairman;
    Bishop Basil of the Antiochian Archdiocese, Secretary; and
    Metropolitan Antony of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the USA, Treasurer.
    Does anyone know if these four constitute the entire “Executive Committee”? If not, who are the other members?
