PRESS RELEASE

MEETING OF THE HOLY EPARCHIAL SYNOD


Today, September 25, 1997, at the Headquarters of the Holy Archdiocese the regular meeting of the Holy Eparchial Synod took place under the chairmanship of His Eminence Archbishop Spyridon.

The agenda included eleven subjects which were discussed in depth. There was a comprehensive exchange among the members of the Holy Synod and a joint examination of current and proposed programs relevant to the concerns of the Holy Archdiocese.

With a sense of regret, the Holy Synod disapproved and rejected the continuing flow of disinformation and the dissemination of rumors by a portion of the press and the internet.

It was decided that the matter be dealt with seriously and responsibly by the local Bishops, in order to dissipate the confusion fostered on our own people and others, and to strengthen the conscience of the Church.

The meeting concluded with the Synodical Hierarchs emphasizing that the course of the Holy Archdiocese is proceeding on the right track and, together with the entire flock of the Church, will reach the safe refuge of love and peace of our Lord Jesus Christ.
