“But now we see that not everyone supports this idea. This is especially true for the Western region. Therefore, we will continue to carry out educational work, and when we see that the vast majority of Orthodox Christians are ready to change the calendar, we will carry out a calendar reform,” Epifaniy emphasized.
He added that the Church cannot put such an issue on the agenda now.
In particular, it announced the first news from the Bishops' Council of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church, which is dedicated to the anniversary of the new church creation.
“At a meeting of the Council of Bishops, Metropolitan Epifaniy announced the legal termination of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church of Kyiv Patriarchate (UOC-KP) and the Ukrainian Autocephalous Orthodox Church (UAOC) religious organizations,” the message reads.
