met council

On February 2-3, 2022 work continued on the results from the Expanded Joint Meeting of the Holy Synod and Metropolitan Council that took place in Cleveland, OH on October 20-21, 2021.

At the meeting eight groups comprised of Hierarchs, Diocesan Chancellors, Metropolitan Council members, seminary representatives, and monastic superiors were assigned specific aspects of vocation in the life of the Church. Each group discussed and suggested solutions to vocational challenges.

With the blessing of His Beatitude Metropolitan Tikhon, the Chancery staff met to continue analysis of the results from the meeting. The work found common areas between the groups and determined actionable next steps. These recommendations will be further developed and implemented by the various groups who can effectively carry these out.
