The delegates are meeting with religious and secular leaders in Romania, Bulgaria, and Greece to explain the mission of the Archons,  underscoring Orthodoxy’s ethnic richness and respect for local cultures, and above all its universal, transcendental appeal.  They also hope to foster stronger connections  among Orthodox communities  in United States and the Mother Church in Constantinople and  among Orthodox countries including Romania, Bulgaria, Greece, and Cyprus based on a strong shared commitment to Orthodox faith and traditions.

The visit is being sponsored by the Alexandrion Group and the Alexandrion Foundation based in Romania. A strong supporter of religious freedom and open dialogue among interfaith communities, the Alexandrion Foundation has facilitated the meetings of the delegation and promoted its mission and messages in the public space.
