“Per the Statute of the Orthodox Church in America, parishes will need to elect new delegates,” said Archpriest Eric G. Tosi, OCA Secretary. “Registration forms, as per normal procedures for an All-American Council, must be completed and received by the OCA Chancery by October 15.”
While observers may register, they will be seated on a first come, first served basis, as space is limited, added Father Tosi.
Hotel reservations will open on Wednesday, September 5. Should the need arise, additional hotels will be engaged and announced. Reservations may be made through October 27.
Additional information on procedures and agenda will be released in the coming weeks.
