According to the definition I Assembly held in April 2010 in Brazil the work of the conference was headed by the Mexican Metropolitan Athenagoras of the Ecumenical Patriarchate.

To participate in the Assembly I have the honour and responsibility and I am glad that my acquaintance with the life of Orthodoxy in South America starts with direct communication with the bishops of local dioceses. Let me say that the past Sunday 4 November was celebrated in Russia as national unity Day to commemorate the end of the Troubles in Russia. Shortly before His Holiness the Patriarch of Moscow and all Russia Kirill visiting Poland together with the conference of bishops of the Roman Catholic Church of Poland made an appeal to the brotherly peoples of Russia and Poland where encouraged to strive for Christian unity and harmony overcoming the bitterness of the former first feud. It prompts me with even greater zeal to encourage you dear colleagues to promote a genuine fraternal unity among the Orthodox. Also, each of us must remember that we are novices of their local Churches. The work of our Assembly should take place strictly within the framework adopted in 2009 decisions of the IV pan-Orthodox pre-Council conference in Chambesy.
During the first day, the bishops discussed various issues of the life of the Orthodox dioceses in South America.
At an official dinner participants of the Assembly welcomed the Ambassador of Greece in Venezuela Athanasius Vlissides.
On 7 November the meeting was adopted the decision about creation of the permanent committees of the Assembly of canonical catechesis translations in Spanish and Portuguese. The bishops of South America supported the initiative of Archbishop Justinian on creating premium Committee and the Committee for relations with the media.
