“Be Thou exalted, O God, above the heavens, and Thy glory above all the earth.”
Statement from the Chancery of the Synod of Bishops

Rumors surfaced this week of the discontinuance of commemoration of His Holiness Patriarch Kirill of Moscow and All Russia in some parishes of the Russian Church Abroad, allegedly blessed by the Synod of Bishops. This report absolutely does not correspond to reality: the Synod of Bishops did not convene to discuss this matter and has made no such decision. In accordance with the Act of Canonical Communion signed by His Holiness Patriarch Alexy II and His Eminence Metropolitan Laurus in 2007, the name of the Primate of the Russian Orthodox Church is commemorated in all parishes and monasteries of the Russian Church Abroad. These parishes and monasteries minister to a multitude of Orthodox Christian believers from Russia, Ukraine, Belarus, Moldova, Georgia, Kazakhstan and other countries.

At the present time, archpastors, clergy, monastics and the flock of our Church are united in prayer for the speedy conclusion of military actions and for the arrival of peace, while at the same time striving to provide needed support to Ukrainian refugees and migrants through the collection of material and humanitarian aid. Collected funds are being sent to the Ukrainian Orthodox Church headed by His Beatitude Metropolitan Onouphry of Kiev and All Ukraine.
