A historic moment on December 16th in the Netherlands! Both Orthodox families (Eastern and Oriental) decided to work together on an administrative level and have created a joined pastoral organization that will work with the ministries of Justice, Defense, and Education. The agreement was signed by Metropolitan Athenagoras and Bishop Arseny on behalf of all the Orthodox churches. This means that the Orthodox Church in the Netherlands finally has representation at official levels to promote pastoral interests of Orthodox faithful in need. Truly a blessed moment for God’s Church! Source: Amsterdam Centre for Orthodox Theology
