The Two Metropolitans Christophoros Concelebrate

The Two Metropolitans Christophoros Concelebrate

According to the website of the Holy Metropolis of Mesogaia and the Islands, His Eminence Metropolitan Christophoros, who recently left the GOC under Archbishop Makarios due to its adoption of name-worshiping, and has heretofore been independent, has entered into communion with a Bulgarian Metropolitan, His Eminence Christophoros of Sardica, who originates from the Bulgarian Alternative Synod under Patriarch Pimen (+1999).

Metropolitan Christophoros of Sardica returned to the Patristic Calendar before entering into communion with Metropolitan Christophoros of Mesogaia. The two bishops solemnified their union via a concelebration for the feast of the Holy Monastery of Panagia Drenia in Ambelakia, Salamina.
