Scheduling Change in the IV All-Diaspora Council

According to a decision of the Bishops' Assembly, Reader Andrei Psarev's lecture, “Development of the Russian Orthodox Church Outside of Russia's Perspectives Towards Other Local Orthodox Churches and Non-Orthodox Christians,” which was scheduled for Thursday, May 11, is moved to Wednesday, May 10. The reason for this change is a series of questions that arose during discussions on Tuesday, May 9th, that may be answered in part by Psarev's lecture.

Protopriest Victor Potapov's lecture, “The Task of an Orthodox Parish Today,” is now scheduled for 3:00 pm on Thursday, May 11, so that the first half of the day may be dedicated to the continuation of discussions and the approval of a resolution. In this way the amount of time set aside for discussing the resolution will remain unchanged.
