Canon 238

1. The following are to be summoned to the eparchial assembly

and must be present for it: (1) the coadjutor bishop and the

auxiliary bishops; (2) the protosyncellus, syncelli, judicial

vicar and eparchial finance officer; (3) the eparchial consultors; (4) the rector of the eparchial major seminary; (5) the

protopresbyters; (6) at least one pastor from each district, to

be elected by all of those who actually have the care of souls,

the protopresbyter presiding over the election; another presbyter

is to be elected as an alternate to fill in for him if he is impeded; (7) the members of the presbyteral council and some

delegates of the pastoral council, if it exists, elected by the

same council in the manner and number established by particular

law; (8) some deacons elected according to the norms of particular law; (9) superiors of monasteries sui iuris and some superiors of other institutes of consecrated life which have houses

in the eparchy, to be elected in the manner and number established by particular law; (10) lay people elected by the pastoral council, if it exists, or designated in some other manner

determined by the eparchial bishop so that the number of lay

people does not exceed one-third of the members of the eparchial

assembly. 2. The eparchial bishop, if he judges it opportune,

can invite to the eparchial assembly others also, not excluding

persons of other Churches sui iuris, to all of whom he can even

grant the right to vote. 3. Some observers from non-Catholic

Churches or ecclesial communities can also be invited to the eparchial assembly.
