On October 14 and 15, 2012, in Sydney, Australia, the third Episcopal Assembly of the canonical Orthodox Bishops of Oceania was held, under the chairmanship ex officio of His Eminence Archbishop Stylianos of Australia.

Present were the representatives of the Ecumenical Patriarchate for Australia, Bishop Irinej of Australia and New Zealand (Serbian Orthodox Church), Bishop Mihail (Romanian Orthodox Church), Bishop Amphilochios (Ecumenical Patriarchate – New Zealand) and Fr. Michael Protopopov (representing Metropolitan Hilarion of the Russian Orthodox Church).

Among the other matters, the Episcopal Assembly of Oceania unanimously decried the unlawful imprisonment of Archbishop Jovan of Ohrid and Metropolitan of Skopje and the continued persecution of the members of the Orthodox Ohrid Archbishopric. The Episcopal Assembly at the same time calls upon the Government of FYR Macedonia to immediately release Archbishop Jovan from prison and to cease and desist persecuting the Orthodox Ohrid Archbishopric.
