The following was received this afternoon from Bishop MAKARIOS, ruling Bishop of the Orthodox Mission in Texas, UOC-KP, with permission to forward it.

From Resolutions of the Hierarchical Sobor
of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church
Kyivan Patriarchate
from 14 May 1999

The Blessed Hierarchical Sobor, that by the will of God met in the city of Kyiv,
thoroughly examining the urgent questions of Church life, Decided:

[...] 11. To appeal for peace and the spiritual unity of the Ukrainian community, which in foreign countries during the last decades struggled for Ukrainian statehood and autocephalous Ukrainian Orthodox Church, so therefore the Ukrainian Orthodox Church Kyivan Patriarchate does not have the moral right to leave without spiritual care those Ukrainian Orthodox parishes in the diaspora which, from the time of His Holiness Patriarch of Kyiv and All Ukraine Mstyslav of blessed memory, remain under the omofor of the Kyivan Patriarch and further do not desire to change their canonical position. We categorically reject the accusations addressed to our Church as supporting division in the Ukrainian diaspora, expressed, in particular, in the "Open Letter" of the Permanent Conference of Ukrainian Orthodox Bishops Beyond the Borders of Ukraine, from 14 June 1998.[...]
