Ecumenical Patriarchate of Constantinople – 11/10/18

The Ecumenical Patriarchate has announced the following on the canonical situation in Ukraine:

The Ecumenical Patriarchate has decided to proceed with the granting of the Tomos of Autocephaly to form a ‘National Ukrainian Orthodox Church’.

To reestablish (at this moment) the ‘Stavropegion‘  of the Ecumenical Patriarchate in Kiev—one of its many ‘Starvorpegion’ in Ukraine that existed there always.

Philaret Denisenko and Makary (Maletich) are canonically reinstated to their hierarchical or priestly rank, and their faithful have been restored to communion with the Church.

To revoke the legal binding of the Synodal letter of the year 1686, issued for the circumstances of that time, which granted the right through economia to the Patriarch of Moscow to ordain the Metropolitan of Kiev elected by the clergy-laity assembly of his eparchy, who would commemorate the Ecumenical Patriarch as the first hierarch at any celebration, proclaiming and affirming his canonical dependence to the Mother Church of Constantinople. 

To appeal to all sides involved that they avoid appropriation of churches, monasteries, and other properties as well as every other act of violence and retaliation so that the peace and love of Christ may prevail.
