Council Participants

 

 

 

On the Feast of Pentecost, when the Church celebrates the descent of the Holy Spirit, more than 500 men and women -- bishops, priests, monastics, and laity -- will participate in the Holy and Great Council, to be convened in Crete. Among those present will be the primates of all 14 Orthodox autocephalous (or self-governed) Churches; more than 300 bishops; almost 100 advisors, numerous stewards and students.
