What is the Charter?
A Charter of the Church is a foundational document, a sacred covenant that outlines the governing principles, structures, and functions of a religious institution. It serves as a bedrock for our faith, defining the relationship of the Archdiocese with its Mother Church and its faithful. The Charter forms the ecclesiastical framework within which the Church operates, establishes its administrative structure, and sets the guidelines for its spiritual, pastoral, and administrative responsibilities. It encapsulates the essence of our Church's mission and vision, reflecting the enduring values and principles of the Greek Orthodox faith.
