On July 27, in Kyiv, under the chairmanship of Patriarch Filaret, a regular session of the Holy Synod of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church-Kyivan Patriarchate was held.

According to the website of the Kyivan Patriarchate, the synod brought up the 20th anniversary of the Council of November 1-3, 1991, which passed the decision for the Ukrainian church to become autocephalous and the 90th anniversary of the establishment of the Ukrainian Autocephalous Orthodox Church (UAOC) at the All-Ukrainian Council in 1921.

The synod decided to hold church celebratory events on October 21-22, 2011, in Kyiv, in particular, a theological and historical conference. Bishop Epifanii of Pereyaslav-Khmelnytskyi and Boryspil was appointed head of the newly established organizing committee.

The synod granted the request of its former Bishop Mykhail (Bondarchuk), who in 2006 transferred to UAOC, to admit him back. The synod also passed several other decisions on hierarchical appointments.

In addition, the Synod decreed to remember all the new martyrs and confessors of the faith “who suffered for Christ and the Orthodox Faith in Ukraine and other lands in the 20th century,” on the second Sunday after the Pentecost. The synod also gave its blessing for the opening of a men’s monastery in the village of Mala Ilovytsia in the Ternopil Oblast.

The synod welcomed the stay of the primate of the Georgian Orthodox Church in Ukraine. As reported earlier, the synod commented on the Council of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church-Moscow Patriarchate of July 8 and issued an address to its head and clergy and faithful.

      Владико Епіфанію - це не критика, не претензія, всього лиш моє бачення ситуації - Ви ДУЖЕ ПОВІЛЬНО "БІЖИТЕ"!!! Навіт 90-літній вл. Філарет "біжить" швидше ніж Ви
