      ROC Clerics will revive monasticism in the Abkhaz Orthodox Church
      --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
       
      Due to the repeated appeals by the head of the Abkhaz Orthodox Church,
      administrator of the Sukhumi and Pitsundsky dioceses, Fr Bessarion Apliaa,
      Kirill, Patriarch of Moscow and All Russia, sent a new abbot, Ephraim 
      (Vinogradov) to the Abkhazian monastery of Saint Apostle Simon the Zealot in
      Novy Afon (New Athos) reported "Apsny Online" on April 2.
       
      Monks and priests of the Russian Orthodox Church accompanied the new rector-
      abbot, Ephraim (Vinogradov), to revive the traditions of Russian monasticism.
       
      SUMMARY: The Abkhaz Orthodox Church, Orthodox Church in the territory of
      Abkhazia was established on September 15, 2009 at a meeting of clergy of
      Abkhazia. Currently without a primate it is temporarily headed by a  Clergy
      Council. The church, which existed historically, currently has no recognition
      from local Orthodox Churches.
       
      In early 2011 the Abkhaz Orthodox Church clergy consisted of about 20 priests
      and 20 nuns. Divine services in the Abkhaz, Church Slavonic and Greek.
