Council of Oriental Orthodox Churches meets

The quarterly meeting of the Council of Oriental Orthodox Churches in the UK & Ireland, held on 4 September at St. Thomas Syrian Orthodox Cathedral in Acton, London, was the first under the presidency of His Grace Bishop Vahan Hovhannesian. The new President had invited His Grace Bishop Gevork Saroyan, Dean of the Gevorkian Theological Seminary of the Mother See of Holy Etchmiadzin, who was visiting the UK, to attend the meeting, which was particularly appropriate as the subject of planning future Orthodox Education Days was one of the items on the agenda.
