No date: Phanar prepares Statute of a new Church in Ukraine

Patriarch Bartholomew of Constantinople

The Synod of the Constantinople Church did not name the final date of the “unification council” in Ukraine in its official communiqué.

The Synod of the Ecumenical Patriarchate prepared a draft statute for the future Local Church of Ukraine, says the official communique following the session of the Synod of the Constantinople Church and published on the website of the Ecumenical Patriarchate.

“In the context of the Ecumenical Patriarchate’s previously-made decision to grant autocephaly to the Church of Ukraine, and in anticipation of the issuance of the Patriarchal and Synodal Tomos, the Holy and Sacred Synod drafted the Ukrainian Church’s Constitutional Charter,” reads the document.

We recall that the regular session of the Synod of the Constantinople Patriarchate began its work in Istanbul on November 27. Rostislav Pavlenko, Advisor to the President of Ukraine, who had arrived in the Phanar the day before to meet with Patriarch Bartholomew, took part in the session of the Synod.
