SYOSSET, NY [OCA]
With the October 15, 2012 deadline for registration for the 17th All-American Council rapidly approaching, delegates are being urged to make hotel reservations and travel arrangements soon.
“The hotels are filling up, so making reservations now is highly recommended,” said Archpriest Eric G. Tosi, Secretary of the Orthodox Church in America. [See related information here.]
The Council will be held at Holy Trinity Church, Parma, OH, on Tuesday, November 13.
In related matters, the Preconciliar Commission has established a dedicated e-mail address—17AAC@oca.org—through which participants may make menu selections for the Council dinner. In sending e-mails to this address, please indicate name, address, parish, Councils status—clergy or lay delegate, retired clergy, observer—and meal preference of chicken or vegetarian. Deadline is November 5. The dinner will be open to all registered clergy and lay delegates, registered retired clergy, and registered observers. There is no fee for clergy and lay delegates. The $50.00 registration fee for retired clergy and observers is applied to the dinner.
“Observer status is available on a first-come, first-registered basis due to limited space, so early registration is encouraged,” Father Eric added.
