If you cannot remember everything, instead of everything, I beg you, remember this without fail, that not to share our own wealth with the poor is theft from the poor and deprivation of their means of life; we do not possess our own wealth but theirs.  If we have this attitude, we will certainly offer our money; and by nourishing Christ in poverty here and laying up great profit hereafter, we will be able to attain the good things which are to come. - St. John Chrysostom

It's pretty impressive for a group consisting of one person to have a secretariat.

Dear Mountain

Please check with the Serbian Orthodox Patriarchate what we OCP is and how much does it matter?
Particularity check with the Information Dept. of the Serbian Patriarchate and they will tell you clearly. 

Dear Iconodule

OCP is not a one man show for your kind information. We are into pan-orthodox business since 2007. We are an independent organization. Yes we are small but we are trying to do what we can. We re not perfect in anything, but we are trying from our side to make a small change. 

Please see the below link to learn more about our humble activities if you are interested.

I am not sure a pan-OO council needs to require the sort of formal planning that an EO council reauires, in that there are only, what, six? or so autocephalous OO communities, counting the two Armenian Catholicosates and two Patriarchates as one.  All of the autocephalous leaders know each other.

What we really need to do is (a) end the schism between SOPA and the IOC, and (b) make sure the Coptic Church does not unwittingly wind up with a uniltaterally altered Paschalion.
Axios and many years to you, Fr. Trenham!
