Abstract

In the Nicene-Constantinopolitan Creed, which is perceived and used in the divine worship by all Orthodox Church, the attribute of ecumenical or sobornost of the Church are mentioned. This fact presupposes that the Church has a degree of openness which should include other confessions in its preaching, in order to reach unity in Orthodoxy. At the hierarchical and theological level the ecumenicity has the purpose to bring others closer to the Orthodox faith at the local and parochial levels. It is quite often that ecumenicity is overlooked in Church ’s mission. My study will focus on the analysis of the articles from the Statute of the Romanian Orthodox Church, which foresee the possibility of mission in the parish. Through this study I would like to show that the Orthodox mission of preaching the faith can only reach its purpose if all of the structures of the Church are taking part in this goal.
