Leaders of Orthodox churches to meet to discuss council preparations

Catholic World News - March 06, 2014

The leaders of all of the autocephalous Eastern Orthodox churches will gather at the headquarters of the Ecumenical Patriarchate of Constantinople from March 6 to 9.

The Interfax news agency reported that “the meeting will address issues relating to the preparations for the upcoming All-Orthodox Council and the situation of Christians in the Middle East. The All-Orthodox Council has not convened for more than 1,000 years.”

Patriarch Kirill I of Moscow, the head of the largest Orthodox church, expressed disappointment that the meeting is taking place during Lent.
