This cathedral, as expected, has to proclaim creation of autocephalous local orthodox church in Ukraine, approve its charter and elect the head. The draft of the charter was approved on the Synod of the Constantinople patriarchy on November 27-29. However, judging by publications, the new church will be strongly limited in the rights — will not be able independently to resolve important issues, to canonize Saints, to cook Miro for an anointing sacrament.
