  5. In the UOC-KP, the defector to the OCU was deprived of the “rank of bishop”

In the UOC-KP, the defector to the OCU was deprived of the “rank of bishop”

At a meeting of the Synod of the UOC-KP on May 25, 2022, “the renunciation of the episcopal dignity and the unauthorized transfer of His Grace Bishop Varsonofiy (Kachan) from the Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the Kyiv Patriarchate to the Orthodox Church of Ukraine” was considered. This was reported on the website of the UOC-KP.

It is also noted that Varsonofiy Kachan “in the rank of archimandrite was adopted from the UOC of the Moscow Patriarchate to the UOC of the Kyiv Patriarchate, ordained to the rank of bishop and appointed to the Khmelnytsky diocese. In May 2022, he renounced the rank of bishop and arbitrarily transferred to the rank of archimandrite in the Orthodox Church of Ukraine,” and the UOC-KP deprived Kachan of his rank.

Earlier it was reported that Varsonofiy Kachan is now a clergyman of one of the dioceses of the OCU.
