Forum on the Holy and Great Council

Logo of the Holy and Great Council

From June 16-27, 2016 the Orthodox Church came together to express the faith of the One, Holy, Catholic, and Apostolic Church through the convening of the Holy and Great Council. Hierarchs, clergy, monastics, and laity offered their personal gifts granted by the Holy Spirit in an effort to present a common witness to Christ and His Church in the world.

Our 43rd Biennial Clergy-Laity Congress will feature a 2-hour forum dedicated to the Holy and Great Council. Registered delegates will have the chance to hear presentations about the significance of the Council and its impact on our lives as Orthodox Christians living in the United States. There will also be an opportunity to ask questions of several of the Hierarchs who actually participated in the Council as delegates of the Ecumenical Patriarchate.

In an effort to provide the faithful the chance to submit their questions and to allow for greater variety of topics discussed, please submit your question using the following online form. Of course, those who are present at the forum will also be given the chance to ask their questions from the floor. Please keep in mind that because of time constraints, it is not certain if every question will be presented; however, there will be a concerted effort to present as many topics as possible.
