Church of Greece recognises autocephaly of the Orthodox Church of Ukraine


The Synod of the senior prelates of the Orthodox Church of Greece has recognised the right of the Ecumenical Patriarchate to grant autocephaly – the right of a church to govern itself without reporting to a higher-ranking cleric – to Orthodox Churches and given Archbishop of Athens and All Greece Ieronymos a mandate to proceed with the recognition of the Orthodox Church of Ukraine.

The decision was reached during a six-hour meeting on Saturday, based on a recommendation made by Ieronymos.
