Press Release about the Schismatics in Taiwan

After publishing the notice of excommunication imposed by the Orthodox Metropolitanate of Hong Kong and South East Asia upon two schismatics who live in Taiwan, numerous messages were received from various people, who in a good-willing spirit wished to find out the facts of the matter.

Excommunication of the Schismatics in Taiwan

Dear Brethren in Christ,

I regret to inform you that the following individuals, who reside in Taiwan, 1.Kiril Shkarbul, 2.Seraphim William Davinson created a schismatic “church”, the so called “Taiwan Orthodox Church”, and thus they excommunicated themselves and abandon the Orthodox Church-the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church. I consider them as strangers to the Body of the Orthodox Church and I inform you that they have no the right to call themselves as “Orthodox Christians” and to participate in the Holy and Sacred Sacraments of the Orthodox Church.
