Day 1 of the XIV Convocation of the Patriarchal Parishes in the USA

On September 30, the XIV General Convocation of the Patriarchal Parishes in the USA began its work under the chairmanship of Bishop Matthew of Sourozh, Interim Administrator of Patriarchal Parishes. This gathering took place at the Antiochian Village near Ligonier, PA, a spiritual center of Antiochian Archdiocese in North America.

The Convocation began with a moleben in Sts. Peter & Paul Chapel, led by Bishop Matthew, co-served by Archpriest Igor Tarasov, Chancellor of the Patriarchal Parishes in the USA, and Archpriest Alexander Golubov, cleric of St. Nicholas Cathedral.  A Litia to commemorate the reposed clergy and laymen of the Patriarchal Parishes was also served.

After the service, Bishop Matthew greeted those present and wished everyone successful and productive work.  The delegates expressed a wish to ask for a blessing from Patriarch Kirill of Moscow & All Rus’, later adopting the text of a telegram that was sent to His Holiness.

Bishop Matthew presented to the participants of the Convocation the candidates to serve as co-chairmen, recording secretaries and heads of the committees, which were approved by vote. The Chancellor of the Patriarchal Parishes in the USA presented the schedule of the Convocation and the procedure for its holding.

The gathering was attended by over 50 clergy and laity, who represent 27 out of the 33 Patriarchal Parishes in the United States and Mexico. At the invitation of Bishop Matthew, the Convocation was attended by Priest Dimitry Nedostupenko, Secretary of the Diocese and Priest John Kazadoev, cleric of the same.
