The Assembly of Canonical Orthodox Bishops of the United States of America will commence its fifth annual meeting in Dallas, Texas with a pan-Orthodox Doxology and Clergy-Laity Gathering on the evening of Monday, September 15, 2014.
All clergy and laity are invited to join in prayer during the Doxology, scheduled for 7 pm at Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church in Dallas. Following the Doxology, a panel of bishops will answer questions related to the work of the Assembly. Fellowship will follow.
This is the second Assembly-sponsored clergy-laity event; the first was held in Cleveland, Ohio in October 2013. The gatherings serve as a valuable opportunity for hierarchs to present the work of the Assembly to the faithful and allow for the exchange of ideas and concerns.
The event is open to the public. A flyer for the event can be downloaded here.
