Led by the newly appointed Dean of the Saint Mary’s Orthodox Church of Maspeth – Queens, father Chesarie Bertea and together with others Romanian heads of Eastern Orthodox Churches from the New York area, the event turned into a dynamic, illuminating and productive spiritual gathering.

As our leadership stated in no uncertain terms, the entire Romanian American Business Council family – believes in a united Romanian Orthodox Church that answers to God and Country of Romania only - and to no extent whatsoever to any foreign power that may govern our American religious institutions. We also recognize NICOLAE - Archbishop of the Romanian Orthodox Archdiocese of the United States of America and Metropolitan of the Romanian Orthodox Metropolitan Church of the Americas.
