In its deliberations, the Holy and Sacred Synod revisited the issue of the Patriarchal and Stavropegic Monastery of St. Irene Chrysovalantou in Astoria, New York.  After examining the report of the commissioned Patriarchal Exarchy, the Holy and Sacred Synod unanimously decided:

a) To accept the submitted resignations of the Abbot, His Excellency Metropolitan Paisios of Tyana, and of the Deputy Abbot, His Grace Bishop Vikentios of Apameia, both of whom are henceforth to remain away from America;
b) To assign as Acting Abbot of the Monastery His Grace Bishop Ilia of Philomelion who serves in America;
c) To send a small brotherhood of monks in order to assist the work of the Acting Abbot.
