Archbishop Spyridon Concludes Meetings

at the Ecumenical Patriarchate

NEW YORK - His Eminence Archbishop Spyridon, Primate of the Greek Orthodox Church in America, has concluded a week-long schedule of extensive meetings at the Ecumenical Patriarchate. Throughout the week, in addition to attending the many meetings of the Synaxis (Convocation) of Ruling Hierarchs of the Ecumenical Throne, Archbishop Spyridon led a group of 100 Archons of the Ecumenical Throne in their pilgrimage to Constantinople. Today, the Archbishop held private meetings with His All Holiness Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew and with the Committee for the Eparchies of the Throne, which is chaired by His Eminence Metropolitan Joachim of Chalcedon. Commenting on these meetings, Archbishop Spyridon remarked:

“I had a wonderful meeting with the spiritual father of Orthodoxy, His All Holiness Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew. In addition, my meeting with the Committee for the Eparchies of the Throne was very constructive and positive.”

The Archbishop is due to arrive back in the United States tomorrow, September 2, 1998.
