Announcement from the Holy Synod



April 5/18, 2013
Holy Martyr Claudius
Dear brothers and sisters,

For several months now, our Holy Synod has been conducting a brotherly dialogue with the Holy Synod of the True Orthodox Church of Greece under the Presidency of His Beatitude, Archbishop Makarios of Athens (www.ec-goc.gr). By the mercy and grace of the Lord, our common labors have yielded a God-pleasing fruit and our two Churches have agreed to establish full Eucharistic unity, which will be sealed by a hierarchical concelebration. The dates of the concelebration will be announced separately. Below is the official announcement signed by the Presidents of the two Synods.

In Christ,

+ Gregory, Bishop of Brookline
   Secretary of the Holy Synod
