      (11:00 AM) Syosset update
      +HERMAN, +NATHANIEL DECLINE

      TO ATTEND JOINT MEETING

      Sources in South Canaan have confirmed that Metropolitan Herman left
      Syosset yesterday, and returned to South Canaan, refusing to attend
      the joint meeting of the Synod and Metropolitan Council today.
      Archbishop Dmitri read the request for a medical leave for the absent
      Metropolitan to the stunned Council this morning. It is not fully
      clear who will chair the joint meeting in the Metropolitan's absence,
      although initial reports say that Archbishop Seraphim of Canada (as
      Secretary of the Synod) will assume that role, assisted by Bishop
      Nikon of Boston.

      In addition to the Metropolitan, Archbishop Nathaniel of Detroit did
      not attend the joint meeting as well. The Archbishop is reported to
      be in Romania. The Romanian Orthodox Episcopate of America (ROEA), a
      part of the OCA for the past 38 years, is currently in negotiations
      with the Romanian Orthodox Church to leave the OCA and enter that jurisdiction.
