About the Assembly
The purpose of the Clergy-Laity Assembly is to bring together, under the care of our hierarch, Metropolitan Nathanael, all ordained and lay leaders from within the Metropolis to discuss and decide important matters affecting the life, growth, and unity of the Church, its ministries, finances, and philanthropic concerns.
The Assembly provides an environment in which our clergymen and lay representatives can come together in worship and fellowship to exchange knowledge and ideas, share best practices and, ultimately, make informed decisions that benefit and further the mission of the Metropolis.
The theme of the 2023 Clergy-Laity/Philoptochos Assembly is: Trust in God: “…God who began a good work in you will surely complete it…” (Phillipians 1:6).
Nominations – Candidate Profiles
The 2023 Clergy Laity Assembly will include elections of laity members to the Archdiocesan Council, Metropolis Council, and Metropolis Audit Committee.
Candidate profiles are released in advance to give voting participants ample time to make informed choices.
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.
All sponsorship dollars raised will go directly to enhancing the content and organization of the CLA.
