Greek Orthodox Patriarchate of Antioch and all the East

His Eminence Metropolitan Jovan
Metropolitan of Veles and Povardarje

Your Eminence,

With great joy, we were informed by our brother in Christ, His Beatitude Pavle, Metropolitan of Belgrad – Karlovci and Serbian Patriarch about your positive response to be again, with your clergymen and the faithful of your Diocese, in full Liturgical and canonical unity with the Serbian Orthodox Church.

We bless this initiative asking our Lord to grant you with all members of your community for many years.

+Ignatius IV
Patriarch of Antioch and All East
