Glory to Jesus Christ!
This is to officially announce that His Eminence, Archbishop MELCHISEDEK has set Saturday, November 2, 2019, as the date of the 2019 Archdiocesan Assembly. This will take place at the St. Andrew Church (100 St. Andrew Drive, Mingo Junction, OH 43938). The day will begin with a Divine Liturgy at 9 AM followed by the two plenary sessions. Individuals responsible for submitting reports for this assembly are asked to please forward them to me electronically (firstname.lastname@example.org) no later than September 27 so the reports can be forwarded electronically to the parish priests and parish councils for review in advance of the November 2nd Assembly. Parish priests are reminded that attendance is expected unless an absence is pre-approved by the archbishop for “just cause.”
A reminder from the hierarch and the Archdiocesan Council - - laity delegates from parishes in arrears for diocesan assessment payments will not be seated at the Archdiocesan Assembly (or afforded the right to vote) in accordance with the Statute of the Orthodox Church in America and the By-Laws of the Archdiocese of Pgh and W PA (OCA), unless otherwise noted by the Chancellor on behalf of the hierarch. Please contact Administrative Assistant Omelan Mycyk at the chancery (Tel: 724-776-5555 // Email: email@example.com) should you have any questions about your parish’s assessment status. He will forward your question to Archdiocesan Treasurer Alexis Parshook if necessary for resolution.
