The Commission on Inter-Orthodox and External Relations is established by H.B. Metropolitan JOHN of New York for the purpose of establishing and maintaining relations with other True Orthodox jurisdictions and traditionalists outside the communion of our Autonomous Orthodox Metropolia and the other True Orthodox local Churches within our communion.
The main Liturgy in celebration of the Tomos of unity was celebrated at the Convent temple of St. John the Baptist. The chief celebrants were H.B., Metropolitan RAPHAEL of Moscow, H.B., Met. ANGHELOS of Avlona, and H.B., Met. JOHN of New York, along with 17 other bishops, and 30 priests, several deacons, and altar servers.
