      CONSTANTINOPLE

      NEW YORK - On the occasion of the celebration of the Year 2008 as the Year
      of Saint Paul and under the presidency of His All Holiness Ecumenical
      Patriarch Bartholomew the Synaxis of the Heads of the Orthodox Churches, is

      This biblical symposium is held in honor of St. Paul and will focus on
      aspects of the life, the apostolic activity and the teachings of the great
      Apostle of the Nations which are connected with our contemporary world. The
      Pauline Symposium is an academic offering of the Ecumenical Patriarchate to
      the Primates of the Church for the enrichment of their pastoral care and
      work.

      On October 11, the Ecumenical Patriarch will deliver the Keynote Address at
      the Phanar, and in the days that follow the Symposium will continue and be
      combined with a pilgrimage to places connected with the life and work of St.
      Paul like Ephesus, Antalya, Rhodes, Lindos and Kaloi Limenes in Crete.

      His Eminence Archbishop Demetrios of America will travel to Istanbul October
      9 and he will return on the 17. He is the chairman of the Academic Committee
      and the Moderator of the Pauline Symposium and His Eminence Metropolitan
      Gennadios of Sasima is the chairman of the Organizing Committee.
