With the blessings of His Eminence Archbishop Demetrios of America, Exarch of the Ecumenical Patriarchate, an Archon Delegation is currently in Berlin, Germany in continuation of advance work in the planning of the 2nd Archon International Conference on Religious Freedom scheduled for Dec 4-5, 2013. The delegation will then travel to the Ecumenical Patriarchate to receive the blessings of His All-Holiness Bartholomew. Finally, they will visit Ankara to meet with government officials to discuss ongoing religious freedom concerns and the reopening of Halki Seminary, forcibly shut down in 1971 by Turkish authorities.
Spiritual Advisor Fr. Alexander Karloutsos is accompanying the Archon team consisting of National Commander Dr. Anthony J. Limberakis, Order of Saint Andrew Legal Counselor Christopher Stratakis and Religious Freedom Conference Chairman George C. Rockas.
