Secretary of the Vinnytsia diocese announced to the clergy of the Cathedral that tomorrow’s Liturgy they pray for the Patriarch Bartholomew and Epiphanius.
On the evening of 15 December, the Secretary of the diocese of Vinnitsa archdeacon Vladislav Demchenko held a meeting of the clergy of the Cathedral of Vinnitsa. About SPM, it became known from own sources.
Demchenko handed over to the clerics of the order of the Metropolitan Simeon (Ostacolo).
December 16, they must remember:
– at the early Liturgy, only his ruling Bishop, Metropolitan Simeon;
– at the late Liturgy, in addition to Metropolitan Simeon, Patriarch Bartholomew, and the head of the new Church UPPC “Metropolitan of Kiev” Epiphany.
Of the Cathedral clergy report that they are in a state of confusion. The main part asked the clergy of other churches in the Vinnitsa to allow them to do tomorrow with them. Several people, including the Secretary of the diocese Vladislav Demchenko, decided tomorrow to serve at the Cathedral.
We will remind, on December 15 was held the “unification Council”, which was attended by the metropolitans Simeon (Shostatsky) and Alexander (drabinko). This fact was commented by the head of the Synodal information-educational Department of the UOC Archbishop Clement. According to him, these bishops no longer have any relation to the UOC: “We are only stating that they went into schism, and inform the Local Church in the diptychs of canonical bishops of Ukraine, they no longer are” – said Lord Clement.
