Metropolitan Epifaniy names condition for change of Christmas date to December 25

The Orthodox Church of Ukraine will go over to the celebration of Christmas on December 25 only when the majority of believers wants it.

"We must avoid the division questions." The calendar issue can now also partially divide the Ukrainian Church, and we believe that in the future - but this is a matter of time - when the majority of Ukrainians are willing to celebrate Christmas according to the new style, the Church will respond to this request of the Ukrainian society,” said Metropolitan Epifaniy of Kyiv and All Ukraine during an interview on Pryamyy TV Channel. It was reported by Gazeta.ua.
