Statement by Father Peter Scorer after his ordination to the priesthood at St Anne’s Church, Exeter, on 1st February 2020

I stand here before you with fear and trepidation. I also stand here with hope and love. We have just now celebrated the divine Eucharist, which is above all the prayer of Thanksgiving, and I now want to give thanks. But there are so many people I need to thank that we may stay here all afternoon and you will never get to your food.

Canonisation of Elder Sophrony of Essex

The Holy Synod of the Ecumenical Patriarchate, convened on 27th November 2019, decided to canonize Archimandrite Sophrony Sakharov, the abbot and founder of the Patriarchal Stavropegic Monastery of St John the Baptist in Essex.

In Christ,
Fr Patrick

 

 

The Current Situation of the Deanery

During the past six weeks, the nine remaining parishes and larger communities comprising the Deanery have held general meetings and voted (mostly with large majorities or unanimously) to remain in the Ecumenical Patriarchate, and therefore to come under the omophorion of Archbishop Nikitas of Thyateira and Great Britain. He had made it clear that parishes must go through due processes before being received into the Archdiocese.

Communiqué of the Office of the Diocesan Administration of May 13, 2019

A pastoral assembly convened by his Eminence Archbishop Jean de Charioupolis in his pastoral letter of April 22, 2019 was held on May 11, 2019 in the premises of the St. Sergius Institute of Theology with the assistance of the parish St Sergius.

This initiative follows the disarray caused by the decision of 27 November 2018 of the Holy Synod of the Patriarchate of Constantinople to close down the Exarchate and by the spontaneous debate that has developed regarding the future of our Archdiocese.

Communiqué of the Archdiocesan Council of 29 March 2019

A delegation, composed of Archpriest Alexander Fostiropoulos (London), Archdeacon Vsevolod Borzakovsky (Rome) and Professor Cyrille Sollogoub (Paris) was warmly received by His Holiness the Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew, in the presence of Metropolitan Emmanuel of France.

The delegation handed over to H.H. the Ecumenical Patriarch the letter written by the Council of the Archdiocese, following the Extraordinary General Assembly of 23 February 2019, which refused to acccept the dissolution of the Archdiocese by nearly 93% of the votes.
