REGARDING THE USE OF THE NEW CALENDAR WITHIN OUR METROPOLIA

There has been much confusion regarding the use of the New (Gregorian) Calendar in our Metropolia.

The Holy Synod granted permission to use the new calendar to parishes who request it. Many parishes, including the Cathedral Church remain on the Old or Julian Calendar

Rumors that all parishes of the Metropolia have gone to the use of the new calendar are not the case at all.

Since we now have many new parishes which celebrate according to the American way, such parishes were given permission by the bishops to celebrate the American holidays.

Remember that we are a totally "SOBORNOPRAVNA" Metropolia, loyal to the principles of the Sobor of 1921. The voice of the people had spoken and their request was granted and blessings by the bishops were given to them.
