Delegation from the East

10 July 2020

July 9th, 1920.

AN EVENT without precedent in the history of the Church was the formal reception at the Lambeth Conference of four delegates from the Patriarchate of Constantinople who attended at the invitation of his Grace of Canterbury. The delegation is composed of the Metropolitan, Philaret of Demotica, in Thrace, the Great Archimandrite Pagonis, the Archpriest Kallinikos, and Professor Komnenos. The delegation attended the opening service of the Lambeth Conference at Westminster, and, having presented their credentials on Saturday, they were received at a full session of the Conference on Tuesday. The members of the delegation have been in constant consultation with the Lambeth Conference Commission on the Eastern Church and with the Archbishop’s permanent Eastern Churches Committee, as well as with the Anglican and Eastern Association, and it is greatly to be hoped that some definite act of external unity may be consummated as a result of their consultations. Certainly at no time previously has the Eastern Church regarded our own communion with so much interest and understanding.
