Orthodox in Ukraine unite

Leave a comment

On Saturday, December 14, 2018 Orthodox Christians in Ukraine united to re-create the autocephalous Kyivan metropolitanate under the Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew. This historic step brings together factions which had since Ukraine’s independence in 1989 maintained their separateness, but now have come together in one Church. Alas, a significant number of Orthodox bishops remain faithful to the Russian Patriarchate. It is still unclear whether their priests and parishes will support them or choose to join the Kyivan Church. For a perspective on the current situation see Fr. Tataryn’s contribution to a discussion on the Forum of the Berkley Center for Religion, Peace and World Affairs: https://berkleycenter.georgetown.edu/responses/ukrainian-autocephaly-subverting-the-russkiy-mir
