His Grace, Bishop JOSEPH Chairs Two Committee Meetings at the Archdiocesan Headquarters
On Wednesday May 19th The Constitution Reconciliation Committee met in Englewood, NJ under the chairmanship of His Grace Bishop JOSEPH.  The goal for this committee is to reconcile any remaining differences between the current Archdiocesan Constitution (approved by our General Assembly at a special meeting which was convened in Pittsburgh, PA in July 2004), and the Constitution that was approved by the Holy Synod of Antioch in October 2004.  The Committee conducted a line-by-line “read-through” of a document that highlighted the differences between the two constitutions.  The committee noted several areas where the changes introduced in the version approved by The Holy Synod of Antioch are acceptable, and should be recommended for inclusion in the Archdiocesan Constitution.  The committee also noted several areas where the changes need to be clarified and perhaps modified in light of the Self-Rule status that was granted to this Archdiocese by a Resolution of the Holy Synod of Antioch on October 9th, 2003.  The committee will meet again to finalize the recommended amendments.  

The second committee, also under the chairmanship of His Grace Bishop JOSEPH, was chartered to study the current “Manual of Hierarchical Duties and Responsibilities” (originally approved by the Archdiocesan Synod on June 4, 2004, and amended on July 23, 2008), and this committee met on Thursday May 20th.  The scope of the committee was expanded to include a review of the new Clergy Guide which is currently in draft form.  A line-by-line “read-through” of The Manual of Hierarchical Duties and Responsibilities was conducted, and suggested changes were noted.  The detailed review of the Clergy Guide was begun, but could not be completed in the available time.  The committee will hold another meeting to complete this review.
