      ROC Synod  formed new dioceses in the Bryansk, Lipetsk regions and in Karelia

      ________________________________

       TheSynod of the ROC, at its meeting in St. Petersburg on May 29 formed new dioceses in the Bryansk, Lipetsk regions and in Karelia.
       In these three regions Metropolias were also established, which encompass new dioceses, reports "Interfax" citing the head of the Synodal Information Department of the Moscow Patriarchate, Vladimir Legoyda.
       
       
      Thus, the number of dioceses of the Moscow Patriarchate has reached 260, while at the beginning of 2009, when Patriarch Kirill (Gundyaev) was elected, there were 159. В РПЦ МП состоят 303 викарных и правящих архиерея. In the MP there are 303 vicar and ruling bishops

      The Synod also changed the name of the holiday "Sobor of the New Martyrs and Confessors of Russia" to the "Sobor of the New Martyrs and Confessors of the Russian Church" due to the fact that "the canonical responsibility" of the Moscow Patriarchate "stretche over many state.s"
