Note Item 1 on the abbreviated agenda and Item 2 on issues addressed regarding Orthodox weddings taking place outside of Orthodox Churches.
Source

Among the items on the agenda of the meeting were the following:

   1. An update on the new initiatives toward Orthodox Unity in North America
   2. A status report from each hierarch on the highlights of activities in his diocese
   3. The status of our seminarians, and the pastoral assignments that are still to be made
   4. Important policies and procedures that insure smooth and efficient communications.

Two important specific issues that were addressed were:

   1. A reminder that, as per a decision of the Holy Synod of Antioch, the Paschal Funeral Service is to be used for the entire 40 day period from Pascha to Ascension.
   2. A reminder that Orthodox weddings must be held in an Orthodox Church building.  Any exception to this requires the approval of The Metropolitan.

Is there a reason for you highlighting the points you did?

^ Besides highlighting the points mentioned in the sentence introducing the news article, there was no other reason.   Smiley

So the Antiochians are having a problem with people being married in places other than an Orthodox Church building, and the Bishops are issuing a reminder to correct this. What is there to discuss?

Nothing - the post was intended to inform not to trigger discussion.
