Russian Church mulls new catechism and Crete documents

Quite a small update for two issues with so much import.

( - On 13 November 2017, a plenary session of the Synodal Biblical and Theological Commission of the Russian Orthodox Church took place at Ss. Cyril and Methodius Theological Institute of Postgraduate Studies under the chairmanship of Metropolitan Hilarion of Volokolamsk.

The Commission members discussed the results of the analysis of the documents adopted at the Council of the ten Local Orthodox Churches held on the Island of Crete on 18-27 June 2016. The Commission’s conclusion will be submitted to His Holiness Patriarch Kirill of Moscow and All Russia.

During the meeting, Mr. Andrei Shishkov, secretary of the Synodal Biblical and Theological Commission, informed the Commission members of the comments on the draft Catechesis published for Church-wide discussion. The Secretariat of the Biblical and Theological Commission received 136 comments from hierarchs, clergymen and lay people of the Russian Orthodox Church and set about examining them.
