The '''[[Episcopal Assembly of North and Central America]]''', founded in 2010, consists of all the active Orthodox bishops of North and Central America, representing multiple jurisdictions. It is the successor to SCOBA, and it is not, properly speaking, a synod. The Episcopal Assembly of North and Central America is one of several such bodies around the world which operate in the so-called "diaspora."

This week is also often called the Great and Holy Week.
As leave is taken from Great Lent with the celebration of the Saturday of Lazarus, which remembers Christ’s raising of Lazarus from the dead and the promise of universal resurrection for all, a week is entered during which the church services remember Christ’s last week, the Holy Week, before his crucifixion and resurrection, During this week the Matins Services for the upcoming day is celebrated the evening before, in accordance with the ancient definition that the day is from sunset to sunset. '''''Recently featured:''' '' [[Raphael Morgan]], [[Byzantine NotationHoly Week]], [[Nicholas Georges Florovsky]], [[Theodoros II (Choreftakis) of JapanAlexandria]], [[BedePaschal Homily]], [[Gregory PalamasPachomius the Great]].<!--Newly ''View all [[:Category:Featured Articles|featured articles]] are presented every other .'''Friday'''.--<noinclude>[[Category:Main page templates|Featured]]</noinclude>''
