Communiqué of the Council of the Archdiocese of 15th December 2018

Following the Pastoral Assembly held on 15th December at the Church of St Sergius, in which nearly all the clergy of the Archdiocese took part, His Eminence Archbishop John of Charioupolis, ruling Archbishop of the Orthodox Churches of Russian Tradition in Western Europe, in consultation with the Council of the Archdiocese which met immediately after the Pastoral Assembly, has convened an Extraordinary General Assembly of the Diocesan Governing Union of Russian Orthodox Associations in Western Europe, of which he is the President.

Communique of the Diocesan Administration

You are reminded that the Pastoral Assembly which is to meet on Saturday 15 December 2018, with the participation of members of the clergy and to which the lay members of the Archdiocesan Council are invited, does not constitute a statutory decision-making body regarding the future of the Archdiocese. It is an occasion for consultation and communion by His Eminence the Archbishop in charge with his clergy, indispensable for the exercise of the episcopal ministry.

Communiqué of the Council of the Archdiocese of 30th November 2018

The Archdiocese of Russian Orthodox Churches in Western Europe, which is one of the oldest Orthodox ecclesiastical entities in our regions, had been placed under the pastoral responsibility of Metropolitan Evloghiy (Guéorguievski) by Saint Tikhon, Patriarch of Moscow, by decree of 8th April 1921. Thrown onto the paths of exile by the Bolshevik Revolution, the Russian émigrés established, with faith and courage, an ecclesiastical presence based on the main principles of the unfulfilled Council of Moscow of 1917-1918.

Communiqué from the Ecumenical Patriarchate on the Churches of Russian Tradition in Western Europe

The Holy Synod of the Ecumenical Patriarchate, in its session of November 27, 2018, decided to revoke the patriarchal Tomos of 1999 by which it granted the pastoral care and administration of Orthodox parishes of Russian tradition in Western Europe to its archbishop-exarch.

This decision answers the pastoral and spiritual needs of our time, with the greatest respect for canon law and our spiritual responsibility.
