Abune Mateyas

The Ethiopian Orthodox Tewahedo Church (EOTC) said the statement made by His Holiness Patriarch Abune Matias is not the decision of the Holy Synod.

The Archbishop of Sidama and Gedeo Diocese, His Holiness Abune Yosef, said in a statement that the Holy Patriarch is accountable to the Holy Synod.

According to His Holiness Abune Yosef, the statement of the Holy Patriarch did not follow the procedures of the Synod and was carried out without the approval of the Synod.

According to His Holiness Patriarch Abune Matias, the Holy Synod and the Permanent Synod will not be able to represent the Church and the Holy Synod on their own.

He noted that a number of statements had been made and would be made in the past with the approval of the Plenary and the Permanent Synod.

He also announced that the next meeting of the Holy Synod will discuss the issue.
