After the decision of the Holy Synod of Antioch on 15th October 2013 the communities on this site all belong to the Archdiocese of the British Isles and Ireland.  The existing charity will serve them until a new charity for the Archdiocese can be set up, ie., after the first Metropolitan Archbishop is elected and enthroned. COMMUNIQUE TEXT.

Fr. Philip

After a recent meeting with the Cathedral Council it was agreed unanimously (as in the Deanery) that Fr. Philip Hall should be our candidate for the first Metropolitan of this Archdiocese, and to be presented as such to the Holy Synod of Antioch in due course. Please pray for him, for us and, of course, for the Holy Synod when it next meets, (probably in June 2014). This historic action in unity of the Deanery and the Cathedral community in London is a cause of great rejoicing for the Antiochian Orthodox communities in the British Isles and Ireland. Now begins the important task of making Fr. Philip better known to those who will bear the important responsibility of making this decision, hopefully next year in June.  We have received supportive references from His Eminence Metropolitan Kallistos Ware (English)  (Arabic) and Mother Photina of the Pokrov Skete, (metochion to Valaam), Saint Mars de Locquenay, France (English)  (Arabic).
