Meeting of Romanian Orthodox Hierarchs in Diaspora

Over the weekend Archbishop Nathaniel (Popp) of Detroit and Bishop Ireneu (Duvlea) of Dearborn Heights, both of the American Orthodox Church's Romanian Orthodox Episcopate in America, met with the various hierarchs serving in the Romanian Diaspora in North America and Western and Central Europe. These gatherings of the Romanian Orthodox hierarchs in the West have been taking place for several years to allow them to discuss how to deal with the pastoral needs of the Romanian Diaspora.

The most recent meeting of the Romanian Orthodox hierarchs abroad took place in Paris, but the ROEA has also hosted them in the past in the United States. Since the reconciliation of the Romanian Orthodox communities in Western Europe formerly associated with the Russian Orthodox Church Abroad with the Bucharest Patriarchate the ROEA is the only Romanian Orthodox jurisdiction involved not part of the patriarchal Romanian Orthodox Church. More on the recent meeting can be found here.
