Two Extraordinary Synod Meetings

On Thursday February 21/March 6, 2014, the Holy Synod of the Church of the Genuine Orthodox Christians of Greece convened in an extraordinary meeting in the hall of the church “The Unfading Rose” in Piraeus and discussed the progress of the dialogue of the Church of the G.O.C. with the Orthodox Ecclesiastical Community in Resistance.

They discussed especially the document The True Orthodox Church in Opposition to the Heresy of Ecumenism: Dogmatic and Canonical Issues and having read it, approved it in principle. Observations were made for the rephrasing of certain points. Finally, it examined the necessity of paraphrasing the text in a simpler language in the near future.

In continuation, they discussed the progress of the discussion of canonical and jurisdictional issues which arise, and the manner of their resolution.
