The week-long session of the Holy Synod of the Ethiopian Orthodox Church (May 14-21) passed a landmark resolution affecting the administration of the Church endowment. The hitherto administrator, His Holiness Abune Paulos, Patriarch of EOC, is to hand over administrative power to a just set up executive committee made up of seven bishops, source close to the Holy Synod told Addis Neger.
In another development, the 43 member synod has rejected the Patriarch’s proposal to break up the Addis Ababa diocese into four divisions to curb, (according to the patriarch) the rampant corruption in that particular diocese. Much of the synod’s attention was focused on the performance of the patriarch’s administration which was hotly discussed, according to the same source.
