Synod of the Patristic Calendar of the Church of Hellas (GOC-A)

Postby Maria » Wed 12 February 2014 7:33 pm

I have started this thread to explore the Patristic Calendar of the Church of Hellas objectively.

Below are some questions. Please feel free to provide links and excerpts from official sites as references.
1. What is the history of the Patristic Calendar of the Church of Hellas?
2. Who are their current and former hierarchs and leaders?
    See excerpt below from their website.
3. Is the Patristic Calendar of the GOC Church of Hellas in communion with any True Orthodox jurisdiction?
    No, it has fallen out of communion with the Metropolia of North and South America and the British Isles under Metropolitan John, but it remains in communion with Metropolitan Rafael of Moscow, who is also into Name-Worshiping.

Official Website: http://metropolsynodgoc.com/

The following is taken from their website and provides more information:
    Our Dearest Brothers in Christ, rejoice always in Christ!

    This is the brand new official Site of the Holy Metropolitan Synod of the Patristic Calendar of the G.O.C.'s Church of Hellas.

    In this you can get informed about our Synodical News as well as the Patristic Orthodox presence of our Holy Synod.

    The Holy Metropolitan Synod of the Patristic Calendar of the Genuine Orthodox Christian's (GOC's) Church of Hellas, was officially founded in 2010, by His Beatitude the Metropolitan of Avlona and Viotia messr. ANGELOS, along with His (then) Vicar Bishops: Bishop of Martyropolis Porfyrios (Synodical Head-Secretary), Bishop of Pamfylia Gabriel and Bishop of Pentapolis Cherouvim

    Today, it consists of 11 Hierarchs (His Beatitude the President, 4 Eparchial Bishops with the title of "Metropolitan", 1 plain Eparchial Bishop and 5 Vicar Bishops).

    The Purposes of our Holy Synod are:

    1. The spread of the Genuine Orthodox Faith, which Faith is connected to Jesus Christ's One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church and as this Faith has been described by the Holy Apostles and the Holy Seven Ecumenical Councils. Beyond those that have been preached to us by the Holy Fathers of the Church, nothing else is been believed or accepted or admitted by us.

    2. The demonstration (world-widely if possible) of the Worshiping Majesty of our Church, through mainly the Sacrament of Sacraments: the Holy Eucharistia.

    3. The proclamation through our personal silent experience, of the Monastic ideals as they were applied in the major Monastic Centers (especially Mount Athos) and continue to be experienced in all of our Monasteries.

    4. The prophetical preaching of Repentance to the Heretics and those outside of the One Church, as well as the personal sanctification -through the Holy Mysteries- for those inside the One Church and the One Faith.

    5. The activistic Homology (confession) against the plans of the Dark Powers, who wish to "misguide even the chosen ones" (as it is written in Apocalypse), by using the modern technology and with the assistance of the anti-theistic "Ecumenism" and the rest of the New Age "movements".

    6. THE -MOSTLY DESIRED- UNIFICATION OF THE HEALTHY ORTHODOX POWERS, this is the local Synods, in which, due to some specific conditions, the GOC's Church is been divided. May Jesus Christ our Lord, make us worthy of this all-desired unification, AMEN!

Thank you for starting this thread, Maria. I have recently been tonsured as a reader in this jurisdiction.

Thank you, it was very humbling.

Would it be possible for you to send me an email with your information, so that I may include you in our Metropolia's directory as under Metr Chrysostomos, so that you may be included in our local news and events as well?
