On Monday, August 26, there begin the proceedings of the Standing Holy Synod, which will be completed on Wednesday, August 28.
In the frame of the aforementioned proceedings, the issue of recognition of the Autocephalous Church of Ukraine by the Church of Greece will be discussed.
To this end, rapporteurs appointed by the Holy Synod have also been invited to participate, who will present their opinion on the recognition of the new Autocephalous Church of Ukraine by the Holy Synod of the Church of Greece.
It is noteworthy that the Church of Greece is the first Orthodox Church to recognize the status of Autocephaly granted to the Church of Ukraine a few months ago by the Ecumenical Patriarchate.
Of particular interest are the reactions of the rest of the Orthodox Churches, as well as whether they will follow the example of the Church of Greece if the latter recognizes the Autocephalous Church of Ukraine, as it is rumoured.
