SiR-GOC Union Admin Structure (1)

Perhaps the passage in “The True Orthodox Church in Opposition to the Heresy of Ecumenism” that has caused the most controversy among some is the following in part VI, section VI, which states:

“More specifically, with regard to the Mysteries celebrated in the so-called official Orthodox Church, the True Orthodox Church, within the boundaries of Her pastoral solicitude, does not provide assurance concerning their validity or concerning their soteriological efficacy, in particular for those who commune “knowingly” [wittingly] with syncretistic ecumenism and Sergiansim, even though She does not in any instance repeat their form for those entering into communion with Her in repentance, having in view the convocation of a Major Synod of True Orthodox, in order to place a seal on what has already occurred at a local level.”
