Assembly of Bishops Launches New Website
Tuesday, November 03, 2020
NEW YORK – The Assembly of Canonical Orthodox Bishops of the United States of America is pleased to announce the release of its new website. The website provides historical and current information about the Assembly of Bishops, including financial and annual reports. It features directories, ministries, and resources, and aims to be a communication hub between the Assembly of Bishops and the clergy and laity.
Metropolitan Gregory, Secretary of the Assembly of Bishops, commented, “the new website reflects the revitalized energy of the Bishops, who meet regularly to address the concerns and needs of the Orthodox faithful in the U.S. We look forward to engaging the clergy and laity through the internet, and most especially – when it is again safe to do so – in person.”
The launch signifies the culmination of a consultative process that included marketing, communications, IT and web experts, as well as theologians, lawyers, and graphic designers. The Assembly of Bishops extends its deep gratitude to all the volunteers who worked on the project, as well as the Department of Internet Ministries of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America for its continued support.
