Archbishop Severius Moses Joins Genuine Orthodox Church of Greece (Avlona Synod)

Berlin -Germany: Former Metropolitan-Primate Severious Moses Gurgon of the Antiochian Syriac Orthodox Church of Europe (non-existing) was received as an Archbishop into the Genuine Orthodox Church of Greece (Avlona Synod) in 2016. He is the Archbishop of the newly created Archdiocese of Myron in Germany.

Severious Moses Gurgon was a monk of the Syriac Orthodox Church of Antioch and All East. Severius Moses left the Syriac Church in personal disagreement with the hierarchy. Later, he was consecrated as the Metropolitan of Antiochian Syriac Orthodox Church of Europe by the Indian Orthodox Malankara Church. Later he was excommunicated for violating canonical rules with regard to the consecration of new bishops.

Genuine Orthodox Church of Greece (Avlona Synod) is one the non-canonical Greek Orthodox Churches which is not in communion with any of the Eastern Orthodox Churches. The current Primate of the church is Metropolitan Angelos of Avlona and Beotias. The church has sixteen archbishops and has faithful in the USA and Europe.

As a former fellow traveler of the Greek Old Calendar Churches (I was a communing member of the former Synod in Resistance), I have never heard of the Avlona Synod. Does anyone know their story? I am familiar with the main bodies of Old Calendarist and the Matthewites and their various synods but this is a new one.

Trying to follow these Old Calendarists is more entertaining than and about as confusing as serial watching Youtube videos. In fact, it may be the same thing. In any case, there are numerous references to the Avlona Synod (in 2013 it was "officially called True Orthodox Church of the Patristic Calendar") none of which seem to relate to each other. If you can find a 4-dimensional organizational chart program you might be able to plot their relationships.
