FROM: Metropolitan Agafangel 15/12/2016 14:11

Today I received by email a letter from Abbot Andrew (Erastov):

Addressed to: Your Eminence Metropolitan Agafangel:

Your Eminence, You are invited to the 6th All-Diaspora Council, which will take place from 10 to 14 January, 2017,  in the Spiritual Center of Mountain View, New York. At the forthcoming Council the in-depth reasons for the crisis formed in the ROCA for the last 8 years will be thoroughly discussed, and  ways out of the present critical situation will be sought.
SIGNED: The Pre-Council Committee of the 6th All-Diaspora Council.

 And I answered  him:

Your Reverence! According to the decision of our Council of Bishops in 2016, all those persons who will be present from 10 to 14 January 2017 at the heretical gathering at Mountain View, incorrectly referred to as "the 6th All-Diaspora Council," if they are ordained - will be prohibited from serving and, if they are lay people or monks - banned from Holy Communion. So I, even if I wanted to, I  have no right to be present there. The same is true  for you. Therefore, being responsible for the Australian Diocese, I forbid you to participate in this unlawfulness. 
With a sincere concern for your salvation
+Metropolitan Agafangel
