An English translation of the recent statement of the Holy Synod of the Eritrean Orthodox Church is given below. We are yet to  get a clear picture of the situation, whether Patriarch Abune Antonios is fully reinstated as the canonical Patriarch of Eritrea.

In the name of the Father, the Son and The Holy Spirit one God Amen.

This is the day the Lord has made; We will rejoice and be glad in it. [Psalm 118:24]

After many, efforts taken by the Union of the Monasteries and Church Scholars of the Eritrean Orthodox Tewahdo Church, the issue of Patriarch Abune Antonios the Third has come to an end on 07/11/2017. We gladly want to inform to all its faithful Christians and friends that the Holy Synod Meeting has come to conclusion with full reconciliation, peace and love with Abune Antonios in the presence of Union of the Monasteries and Church Scholars.
