Good News:

MItered Protopriest Joseph Sunderland has been appointed Dean of the North American Deanery

To the Clergy and Parishes of the Russian True Orthodox Church in North America:

Date of publication on web-site: 19.11.2016

Please be informed that the Synod of Bishops of the Russian True Orthodox Church has decided to retire Bishop Stefan without the right to serve. He may regain his right to serve only in his Trenton, NJ, parish if he fully repents of his actions.

Furthermore, the Holy Synod has decided to restore the structure of the North American dioceses as it was under ROCOR. The Mitered Protopriest Joseph Sunderland, rector of the parish of the Hieromartyr Joseph of Petrograd in Portland Oregon, has been appointed Dean of the North American Deanery of the Russian True Orthodox Church. He is assigned to administer this territory until such time that bishops may be restored in each diocese.

Only the name of the President of the Holy Synod, Archbishop Tikhon, may be commemorated during the divine services.

With love in Christ,

Protopresbyter Victor Melehov, Secretary
Synod of Bishops
Russian True Orthodox Church
Lord Jesus Christ, have mercy on me a sinner.

With this sad news, let us increase our prayers that Christ our God may enlighten His people as we prepare for the Nativity of Christ:


To the Clergy and Parishes of the Russian True Orthodox Church in Western Europe

Date of publication on web-site: 19.11.2016

Please be informed that the Synod of Bishops of the Russian True Orthodox Church has decided not to grant the Lesna Monastery its request to leave the RTOC and join the Serbian True Orthodox Church. Similarly, the Synod has denied the Mission, with its parishes and communities, its request for a canonical leave to join the Serbian True Orthodox Church. Finally, the Synod has decided to dissolve the Mission operated by the Lesna Monastery, and relieve its office holders of their positions. In its stead, the Synod has decided to restore the structure of the Western European dioceses as it was under ROCOR, and even before that under the omophor of the Holy Patriarch Tikhon. Archimandrite Philaretos (Klimatikis) has been appointed Dean of the Western European Deanery of the Russian True Orthodox Church. He is assigned to administer this territory until such time that a bishop may be assigned. Throughout this territory, only the name of the President of the Holy Synod, Archbishop Tikhon, may be commemorated during the divine services.

With love in Christ,

Protopresbyter Victor Melehov, Secretary
Synod of Bishops
Russian True Orthodox Church
