Macedonia's Church welcomes decision of Bulgarian Orthodox Church

Macedonia

Skopje, 27 November 2017 (MIA) - The Holy Synod of Bishops of the Macedonian Orthodox Church - Ohrid Archbishopric (MOC-OA) has expressed gratitude to the Patriarch Neophyte of Bulgaria and to members of the Holy Synod of the Bulgarian Orthodox Church (BOC) after a decision was reached with regards to a letter of the Macedonian Orthodox Church.

"The decision reached by the Holy Synod of the BOC gives hope that the status of a legitimate autocephaly of the Macedonian Orthodox Church in the family of local Orthodox churches will be finally settled. We expect in the future the Bulgarian Orthodox Church to continue to serve as a constant collaborator of the Macedonian Orthodox Church in accomplishing the godly goal," reads a statement of the MOC-OA.

Earlier in the day, the Holy Synod of the Bulgarian Orthodox Church (BOC) at a session has decided to engage in establishing the canonical status of the Macedonian Orthodox Church (MOC) and to represent before local Orthodox churches. ba/14:11
