Historic Meeting of Assembly of Bishops Committee Chairmen
A historic face-to-face meeting of the Assembly of Bishops committee chairmen was organized by the Secretariat’s Coordinator for Committees, Bishop Maxim, and was held on May 30 at the Metropolia Center of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the USA, South Bound Brook, NJ, and was hosted by Archbishop Antony. Since much of the work of the Assembly of Bishops falls within the purview of its thirteen committees, the success of these committees is essential for the success of the Assembly as a whole.
Ten bishops were present at this meeting, including the Assembly Chairman, Archbishop Demetrios, Archbishop Antony, Archbishop Nicolae, Metropolitan Joseph, Metropolitan Methodius, Bishop Andonios, Bishop Daniel, Bishop George, Bishop Maxim, and Bishop Thomas. Also in attendance were liaisons from the Secretariat to the committees: Fr Mark Arey, Fr Nicholas Ceko, Protodeacon Peter Danilchick, and Attorney Eric Namee.
