GOC-K Eparchal Synod Meeting Autumn 2014

November 19, 2014  (Source: http://www.hotca.org)

On this past October 23 / November 5, the Holy Eparchal Synod of the GOC-K in America met at Holy Ascension Monastery in Bearville, New York.  Present at the Synod meeting were Metropolitan Demetrius of America, Metropolitan Moses of Toronto, Bishop Sergios of Portland, and Bishop Christodoulos of Theoupolis. The meeting was convened under the presidency of Metropolitan Demetrius of America.

The GOC-K in America recently had the grand opening of St. Mark of Ephesus Cathedral in Westwood,  Massachusetts, at which was present Archbishop Andronik of Syracuse of the ROCOR-A.

Metropolitan Demetrius, Metropolitan Moses and Bishop Sergios were originally bishops in HOCNA, but, left in 2012 after they could not accept the proclamation of the Name-Worship Heresy in the HOCNA Synod.  The same followed with most of the HOCNA clergy leaving.  They all then joined the GOC-K in America.  Timeline of the events can be found linked here on NFTU.
