GOC-K Begins Discussions with Romanian Synod in Slatioara

Reported on Sept. 18, 2013

Representatives of the GOC-Kallinikos visited the Romanian Old Calendar Church seated in Slatioara. The first hierarch of this Synod is Met. Vlasie.  In the past 2 years there seems to be increasing contact between the GOC-K and representatives of the various Synods connected with the Synod in Resistance in Greece.  As is known, the Romanian Old Calendar Church does not seem to accept the ecclesiological position of the SiR that the Patriarchates have the grace of the Mysteries (since the Romanians either baptize or chrismate those coming to them from the Romanian Patriarchate).
