Supreme Ecclesiastical Council Meets in Moscow

The first session of the Supreme Ecclesiastical Council of the Russian Orthodox Church was held today in Moscow, Russia, under the chairmanship of Patriarch Kirill (Gundyayev) of All Rus'. The Council was recently established to guide the life of the Church between hierarchical councils in accordance with the decisions of the All-Russian Council of 1917 and 1918, whose reforms were implemented in parts of the Russian Diaspora (including in what is now the American Orthodox Church), but not in Rus' itself due to the Bolshevik Revolution. More (in Russian) here.
