The result of the meeting:

Quote
The eleventh meeting of the Joint International Commission for Theological Dialogue between the Orthodox Church and the Roman Catholic Church took place in Paphos, Cyprus, a city with a rich history, having received three Apostles, Paul, Barnabas and Mark. The meeting took place from 16-23 October 2009, generously and fraternally hosted by the Orthodox Church of Cyprus.

 Twenty Catholic members were present; several more were unable to attend. All the Orthodox Churches, with the exception of the Patriarchate of Bulgaria, were represented, namely the Ecumenical Patriarchate, the Patriarchate of Alexandria, the Patriarchate of Antioch, the Patriarchate of Jerusalem, the Patriarchate of Moscow, the Patriarchate of Serbia, the Patriarchate of Romania, the Patriarchate of Georgia, the Church of Cyprus, the Church of Greece, the Church of Poland, the Church of Albania and the Church of Czech Lands and Slovakia.

...

During this plenary meeting, the Commission carefully considered and amended the draft text of the Joint Coordinating Committee, and decided to complete its work on the text next year, by convening a further meeting of the Joint Commission. No final text has been decided upon, and any text that may be circulated is not valid.

It was decided that the 12th plenary meeting will be hosted by Cardinal Christoph Schönborn, in Vienna, Austria, from 20-27 September 2010.

Is there one in english.

Strange, it was in English when I posted the link. The English translation is now here.

It probably amounts to around 30 parishes worldwide, mainly composed of ex-Anglicans/Episcopalians looking for a haven from such things as women's ordination and gay marriage.

How unfortunate that someone actually admits this. Don't require them to actually be orthodox, just conservative.

I would hope that the receiving bishop has satisfied himself that these converts hold the Orthodox faith.  There may be a few kinks which he is willing to temporarily tolerate - a disinclination to kiss icons, doubts about this or that.  The Church is able to be lenient in admitting members (although I would hope they are made aware that eventually they need to come to a fully Orthodox mindset.)  You yourself may similarly experience some leniency from the Orientals as regards your beliefs but I imagine that with time and the grace of God they will expect changes to occur.

As for the regular nominal conversions and baptisms of young male pagans which take place to enable an Orthodox wedding with Orthodox girls.... oh my!   :o
