December 2006 = Synodical Court

  • At the Meeting which took place at the 20th of December 2006 (O.S.) the Sacred Synod discussed the subject of Bishops Niphon and Arethas who apostasized from our Church last September. The Sacred Synod decided and conveyed the apostate Bishops to the Synodical Court with the charges of division, parasynagogue and blasphemy. It was decided for the suspended Bishops to remain in suspension until the conditions for a trial are fullfilled.
