The Statutes of the Diocese of Sourozh – 1978 to 2001

This site is intended to assist anyone interested in the history of one of the most important development in the recent history of the worldwide Orthodox Church – the Statutes of the Russian Orthodox Diocese of Sourozh, created under the guidance of Metropolitan Anthony of Sourozh between 1978 and 2001.


Sourozh Statutes 2001 revision


These are not the current Statutes of the Diocese; in 2010 they were substantially amended to accord with the present structures and requirements of the Patriarchate of Moscow.  What you see here is the result of the work of the Diocese under the guidance and with the blessing of Metropolitan Anthony, of blessed memory, who reposed in the Lord in 2003.
