Orthodox Church of Ukraine to allow Christmas on December 25 as rift with Moscow deepens
Jack Guy CNN - Yesterday 12:33 p.m.
A branch of Ukraine’s Orthodox church has announced that it will allow its churches to celebrate Christmas on December 25, rather than January 7, as is traditional in Orthodox congregations.
The announcement by the Kyiv-headquartered Orthodox Church of Ukraine widens the rift between the Russian Orthodox Church and other Orthodox believers that has deepened due to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.
The decision came after “taking into account the numerous requests and taking into account the discussion that has been going on for many years in the Church and in society; predicting, in particular due to the circumstances of the war, the escalation of calendar disputes in the public space,” the Orthodox Church of Ukraine said in a statement published October 18.
Is this really news? If my memory serves, my Ukr. Catholic Church, Toronto eparchy priest told us in the fall of 2019 that the OCofU and the UCatholicChurch had agreed to allow this on a parish by parish basis.
My parish then decided to make the switch (unlike the rest of north America, a good many parishes in the Toronto eparchy of the UCC were still celebrating "old style"; some still are).
