Synod Statement

From OCANews:

The meeting of the Synod of Antioch concluded Friday morning, June 19, with the issuance of a brief Statement regarding the situation in North America. Various reports from the meeting indicate that the gathering was very contentious and resulted in a decision that was not unanimous.

It is reported that those who voted against the Statement of the Synod were those normally aligned with Metropolitan Philip.

As soon as the official English language translation of the Statement is released, it will be posted on

There is a rumor, reported on OCNet, that the Synod has reversed +Philip’s decision with regard to the AOCA bishops. The bolded sentence above would support that, but I’ll wait for the English translation to come out (as far as I can tell, the Arabic statement has not been made public).
