In September 2018, the Assembly of Canonical Orthodox Bishops released a new report "Fast Questions and Fast Answers about American Orthodox Bishops" Based on questions that American Orthodox hierarchs often receive from clergy and parishioners, this essay offers plenty of interesting facts about the lives of our Bishops, as well as who they are as people. Here are a few examples of the questions that are answered in this mini-report:
- What are our Bishops’ personal hobbies, talents and interests?
- Prior to becoming a clergyman, have any of the American Orthodox hierarchs worked in some "secular" – not church-related – job positions?
- How educated are American Orthodox Bishops?
- Is being a Bishop a difficult "job?" What are the challenges that American Orthodox hierarchs face?
