His Eminence Archbishop Mark attended the Pan-Orthodox Episcopal Assembly of Great Britain and Ireland on Friday 23rd October 2015. The Assembly asked that links should be put to its own website on Diocesan websites of the UK and Ireland. The website carries a statement that was agreed last April concerning the plight of persecuted Christians throughout the world but especially in the Middle East and North Africa. Orthodox Christians are asked to pray for their persecuted brothers and sisters and to raise funds for their support in the parishes. More details can be found on the Assembly's website.
