What is an All-Diaspora Council?

We consider it imperative to convene the All-Diaspora Council in order to evaluate the actions of Metropolitan Agafangel and his Synod, and to take steps to restore conciliarity. In accordance with the Regulations of the ROCA, “In the case of special need, the First Hierarch together with the Synod of Bishops convenes an All-Diaspora Church Council, consisting of bishops and representatives of the clergy and the laity.” However, in the current situation, as the Council is being convened to put the Metropolitan and his Synod on trial, they should not participate in preparations for the All-Diaspora Council.
