Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America Announces Launch of New Website on the Charter Revision
The Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America (GOA) announces the launch of a dedicated website (charter.goarch.org) aimed at providing comprehensive, up-to-date, and accurate information concerning the proposed revision of the Archdiocese’s Charter.
This specialized digital platform was developed at the direction of His Eminence Archbishop Elpidophoros of America. It is an embodiment of the mandate given by His All-Holiness Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew to the Holy Eparchial Synod to extend the conversation on the Charter revision to members of the clergy and the laity across the United States.
His Eminence Archbishop Elpidophoros said: "The creation of this dedicated website represents a crucial step in our mission to ensure transparency, engagement, and a collective approach to the proposed charter changes. I look forward to the opportunity to share my vision, and I invite all faithful to explore this platform and engage in a dialogue about our Church's future.”
The new website will host sections titled: "What is a Charter?"; "Why a New Charter?"; and "Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)." Site visitors will also have the opportunity to review videos and written presentations, read canon law papers and past press releases and communiques from both the Ecumenical Patriarchate and GOA, and engage with and be reliably informed about the ongoing process. The “Ask a Question” form, an interactive feature, encourages the faithful to submit their questions, fostering an open dialogue that will be updated and addressed regularly on the website.
Please visit charter.goarch.org to learn more about the Charter revision and contribute to this important conversation.
