ROC stops communication with the head of the Church of Greece


Metropolitan Hilarion, chairman of the Moscow Patriarchate’s department for external church relations, said on the air of Rossiya 24 TV channel that the Russian Orthodox Church is stopping Eucharistic communion with the head of the Greek Church, the Archbishop of Athens, Jerome of Athens.

According to him, on Sunday, November 3, when the Patriarch of Moscow and All Russia Kirill will serve a prayer service, there will be no remembrance of the head of the Church of Greece.

According to RIA Novosti, the Metropolitan noted that the Russian Orthodox Church is ready to maintain fellowship with bishops who do not recognize the schism of the church in Ukraine.

On October 12, it was reported that the Greek Church recognized the right of the Patriarch of Constantinople Bartholomew to grant autocephaly.

Some hierarchs of the Church of Greece opposed the recognition of schismatics, but no voting was held on this subject at the council. Archbishop Jerome himself advocates the recognition of the Orthodox Church of Ukraine.
