On Thursday, March 24, the Chancery of the Synod of Bishops published a statement in connection with rumors that had spread "of the discontinuance of commemoration of His Holiness Kyrill, Patriarch of Moscow & All Russia, in some parishes of the Russian Church Abroad:"
Rumors surfaced this week of the discontinuance of commemoration of His Holiness Kyrill, Patriarch of Moscow & All Russia, in some parishes of the Russian Church Abroad, allegedly blessed by the Synod of Bishops. This report absolutely does not correspond to reality: the Synod of Bishops did not convene to discuss this matter and has made no such decision. In accordance with the Act of Canonical Communion signed by His Holiness, Patriarch Alexey II, and Metropolitan Laurus in 2007, the name of the Primate of the Russian Orthodox Church is commemorated in all parishes and monasteries of the Russian Church Abroad. These parishes and monasteries minister to a multitude of Orthodox Christian believers from Russia, Ukraine, Belarus, Moldova, Georgia, Kazakhstan, and other countries.
At the present time, the archpastors, clergy, monastics, and flock of our Church are united in prayer for the speedy conclusion of military actions and for the arrival of peace, while at the same time striving to provide needed support to Ukrainian refugees and migrants through the collection of material and humanitarian aid. Collected funds are being sent to the Ukrainian Orthodox Church, headed by His Beatitude Onufry, Metropolitan of Kiev & All Ukraine.
