Canonical Status

The National Ukrainian Orthodox Church Kyiv Patriarchate

HISTORICAL AND CANONICAL DECLARATION BY THE COUNCIL OF BISHOPS OF THE UKRAINIAN ORTHODOX CHURCH KYIV PATRIARCHATE

The Council of Bishops of the UOC Kyiv Patriarchate proclaims this historical and canonical Declaration for the purpose of providing an explanation of the canonical status of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church Kyiv Patriarchate, and its views of the situation of Ukrainian Orthodoxy, and on the basis of the Holy Scripture, Holy Traditions, canons and historical experience of the Ecumenical Orthodox Church, to propose ways and means for ending the existing division of the Orthodox Church in Ukraine and for establishing a unified National Ukrainian Orthodox Church.

II. THE CANONS

The Kyiv Patriarchate acknowledges all canonical rules whose authority is acknowledged by the Plenitude of the Orthodox Church, and applies them in the growth of practical church life.

Еach national community possesses the same plenitude of the gifts of grace as does the whole Church in general, because the same Christ is present in it in the same plenitude.
