COMMEMORATIVE SET OF STAMPS - FEUILLET THE HOLY AND GREAT SYNOD OF THE ORTHODOX CHURCH
Τετάρτη, 15 Ιουνίου 2016

   

The convocation of the Holy and Great Synod of the Orthodox Church genuinely extends the manner of its existence. Our Church’s Synodical System of governance was established on the day of Pentecost, when the Apostles, following the exhortation of the Lord, “were all with one accord in one place” (Acts 2:1), awaiting the coming of the Holy Spirit. This trust was confirmed and adopted by the Apostolic Synod at the end of the year 48 AD and then developed and instituted by the seven great Ecumenical Synods. Many centuries have passed since a pan-Orthodox Synod was last convened. 

     The Ecumenical Patriarchate has worked for decades on the preparation of the Holy and Great Synod of the Orthodox Church, in collaboration and cooperation with the Orthodox Patriarchates and Autocephalous Orthodox Churches worldwide.

     In January 2016, by unanimous decision of the Primates, the Orthodox Academy of Crete was selected to host the Holy and Great Synod of the Orthodox Church, which will take place from 16th to 26th June 2016.

Dr Konstantinos V. Zorbas

General Director of the Orthodox Academy of Crete
