On February 6/19, Bishop Ambrose of Philippi was received into the Church of the GOC of Greece under the Presidency of Archbishop Kallinikos, from the GOC under Archbishop Makarios.

A source familiar with the situation indicated that Bishop Ambrose had become discontent with the recent union between the GOC-M and the Holy Orthodox Church in North America (HOCNA). Recently, Metropolitan Christophoros of Mesagaias walled himself off from the GOC-M for the same reason and remains independent.

Further details will be posted as they become available.

    I think a person would have to be out of their mind to actually believe these seemingly endless divisions constitute the Church of God. Divisions are so common now, that people have become desensitized to it.

    I wonder if he will give Communion to new calendarists too.

    GOC-K clergy are corrupt, and their arrogance and lack of Christian love far surpasses anything I ever saw in my former Protestant associates.
