The session on October 28-29
at Anthiocian Village in Ligonier PA


This meeting was very very important and informative of the direction the Orthodox "Churches" of North America are headed.  The direction was provided by the 4th Pre-Conciliar All-Orthodox Conference - referred to as "IV Chambesy".

This session was organized by the Orthodox Church Laity.

Details on the session can be found HERE

In the past their conferences were primarily Laity, with  very few Clergy in attendance. This conference was very different and had a significant presence from the Clergy with the Key note being Metropolitan Jonah of OCA.  However other notable presence was the Greek, Romanian and Anthiocian Church Bishops and clergy.

All the Mother Churches are present at Chambesy. Even the Serbian Church was clearly represented at this session.
There is a lot of history before this meeting took place, however nothing can be found through our Serbian Church Web sites in North America.

The mother churches of the East (including Serbian) have issued a proclamation from the IV Chambesy. I used the SPC Website to search Chambesy and information was found to a variety of links.
