2018 Archdiocesan Assembly



Glory to Jesus Christ!


This is to officially inform you that His Eminence, Archbishop MELCHISEDEK has set Saturday, November 3, 2018, as the date of the 2018 Archdiocesan Assembly. This will take place at the Holy Resurrection parish located in Belle Vernon, PA (222 Mary Street). 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 (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) no later than September 29 so the reports can be forwarded electronically to the parish priests and parish councils for review in advance of the November 3rd Assembly.

A reminder from the hierarch and the Archdiocesan Council - - lay 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). Please contact Administrative Assistant Omelan Mycyk at the chancery (Tel: 724-776-5555 // Email: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) should you have any questions about your parish’s assessment status; if necessary, he will forward your question to Archdiocesan Treasurer Alexis Parshook.

Thank you.

In Christ,

Fr. Bill
