PRESS RELEASE

The Hierarchs of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the USA Send Condolences to the Hierarchs, Clergy and Faithful of the Serbian Orthodox Church in North and South America on the Repose of Metropolitan Christopher!

To our brethren in the Lord: Hierarchs, venerable clergy, devout monastics and Christ-loving faithful of the Serbian Orthodox Church in North and South America.

Glory to Jesus Christ!

It has only been a few hours since that moment when the servant of God, His Eminence Metropolitan Christopher departed this physical world and was born unto eternal life. This just, forbearing and faithful steward, through whose hands, Almighty God, One in the Holy Trinity, blessed all His children in the land of North and South Americas, and whose voice never ceased to proclaim the word of truth – the  Gospel message in a land enriched by the witness of so many saints.

The venerable clergy and devout laity of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the United States of America join with us and our brothers in the Episcopacy, His Eminence Archbishop Antony and His Grace Bishop Daniel in expressing our most profound condolences to the clergy and faithful of the Serbian Orthodox Church in North and South America, with whom we share a sacred union through the waters of Baptism and the oil of Chrismation. With you, our Serbian Orthodox brothers and sisters we implore Christ our true God, risen from the dead, Who rules over the living and the dead, to rest the soul of His faithful servant, Metropolitan Christopher, in the bosom of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob and to appoint him his place at your heavenly altar. 

We assure you of our prayers for the blessed repose and eternal memory of the devout servant of God, Metropolitan Christopher throughout this forty day period of  reflection – prayers also for the comfort of  you, his spiritual children.

Memory eternal! Memory eternal! Memory eternal!

+Constantine
By the Grace of God, Metropolitan of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the USA.
