HOCNA Metropolitan, Bishop Accepted into Genuine Orthodox Church

Metropolitan Moses of Portland and Bishop Sergius of Loch Lomond of the 'Holy Orthodox Church of North America' (HOCNA) have been accepted into the Genuine Orthodox Church of Greece as hierarchs. They will soon travel to Greece to finalize their union with the Genuine Orthodox by concelebrating with Archbishop Kallinikos of Athens. In North America the heirarchs will become part of an eparchial synod headed by the current head of the Genuine Orthodox Church on the continent, Metropolitan Pavlos (Stratigeas) of Astoria.

  1. Christ is Risen! I appreciate your coverage of our Church, even moreso because unlike so many Internet sites, you actually write your own intro text and then link to the original article, instead of just lifting the original article onto your blog.

  2. Truly He is risen!

    Thank you! It takes a little extra time, but I figure it's better to provide a summary and then whoever wants to read everything can go to the full source and see what it says for themselves.

    I hope that this union goes smoothly! It's exciting to see divisions being healed.
