The Polish Orthodox Church has revealed how the Regional Episcopal Assemblies for the Diaspora approved by the Orthodox Churches two weeks ago at Chambezy will be apportioned.
There will be 12 areas for that Regional Episcopal Assemblies:
1. North and Middle America
2. South America,
3. Australia, New Zealand and Oceania
4. Great Britain and Ireland
6. Benelux countries
8. Italy and Malta
9. Switzerland and Liechtenstein
12. Scandinavian countries (apart from Finland)
13. Spain and Portugal
The assemblies must commence their work before the Pan-Orthodox Council.
All bishops from all Churches in communion with mainstream Eastern Orthodox will be members.
Retired and guest hierarch can be allowed to participate, without the right to vote.
The main goals are to promote unity between Churches and to formulate joint statements re non-Orthodox Churches.
The Assemblies will also discuss issues and relationships with Churches outside canonical Orthodoxy (such as the OC Churches, OCF and so on).
There must be at least one assembly a year.
