Metropolitan Epiphanios told about the next steps to establish a Local Church

All important decisions in the Orthodox Church of Ukraine will be taken in the next year, after receiving the Tomos.

The head of the Orthodox Church of Ukraine, Metropolitan Epiphanius has ruled out the adoption of important decisions of the Church to receive the Tomos of autocephaly. He declared Sunday, December 16 after divine Liturgy in St. Michael’s Cathedral, reports RBC-Ukraine.

In particular, the Church’s structures and organs, according to the Metropolitan, will be formed after obtaining Thomas, and before that the Orthodox Church of Ukraine will not make any significant decisions.

“Tomos is the document that will make us legally as an independent Autocephalous Church. After this document we will form all the bodies that will manage and take part in the development of this Church,” he said.

We will remind, on December 15 in Kyiv was held the Unification Council which was established the local Orthodox Church of Ukraine. Its head was elected the Metropolitan of Pereiaslav and Belotserkovsky Epiphanius (Dumenko). He got a new title – Metropolitan of Kiev and all Ukraine.

Now 6 January, the elected Prelate should receive the Tomos of autocephaly to a United Orthodox Church in Ukraine from the hands of the Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew.

On Sunday, the Primate of the new Church served the first Liturgy in this status.
