Clergy-Laity Assembly – Sponsors


Developing and executing an event for our Metropolis of such significance and magnitude as the Clergy Laity Assembly takes time, creativity and resources from across the Metropolis.  We humbly ask for your support, and thank you for investing in the 2023 Assembly which will further our Metropolitan’s vision of establishing a Metropolis that offers:

  • Christ’s love unconditionally to all people; 
  • A most vibrant clergy brotherhood that inspires the multitudes to pursue ordained and lay vocations; and, 
  • A Christian community whose understanding and appreciation of the faith leads to greater engagement in the Sacramental life of the Church and in the life of society

The biannual CLA & Philoptochos Conference is a quintessential vehicle for cultivating a long-term vision for our Metropolis, and a compass that will direct our efforts toward a more vibrant future. 

All sponsorship dollars raised will go directly to enhancing the content and organization of the CLA.  For more information and to discuss sponsorship opportunities, please complete the online form below, or contact one of us directly.

Trust in God: “…God who began a good work in you will surely complete it…” (Phillipians 1:6).

In Christ,
