To Hieromonk Gregory (Lourye), Rector of St. Elizabeth’s Church, St. Petersburg

Over the course of many years, the Synod of Bishops of the Russian Orthodox (Autonomous) Church has received several complaints from bishops, priests, monks, and lay persons, concerning intolerable and extremely scandalous remarks made by you, together with your spreading of the heresy of “name worshipping,” and, despite the fact that you were warned several times to cease and desist from disseminating heresy via the internet, and you promised to abandon your waywardness and return to the true path, which leads to salvation, you continued, and even until now continue, to spread the heresy of “name worshipping,” publishing the false teaching of hieromonk Anthony Bulatovich on the web page Portal-Credo.ru

In accordance with the decision of the Synod of Bishops of July 7/20, 2005, #51, you are hereby relieved of your duties as rector of St. Elizabeth’s Church in St. Petersburg and are prohibited from serving. Any sacrament that you perform, if you should dare to do so, will not be valid, and will serve to your condemnation.

Ruling Bishop

Metropolitan Valentine of Suzdal and Vladimir
