"On Admitting Non-Orthodox Christians into the Church"

(mospat.ru) - On 20 June 2011, the Inter-Council Presence’s Commission on Attitude to Non-Orthodoxy and Other Religions met at the Moscow Patriarchate’s Department for External Church Relations. The session was chaired by Metropolitan Hilarion of Volokolamsk. Members of the Commission considered a draft document “On Admitting Non-Orthodox Christians into the Orthodox Church."


  1. The ecclesiastical meeting in Moscow this week -- focusing on admitting non-Orthodox Christians into the Orthodox Church -- is an idea whose time has come.

    It is time for the entire Orthodox Church to do much more missionary and evangelical work, in an effort to encourage non-Orthodox worshipers to "see the light" and convert to the Orthodox Church.
