The question of accepting a number of parishes in the Kingdom of Thailand into the jurisdiction of the Russian Orthodox Church was considered at the session of the Holy Synod of the Russian Orthodox Church held at Danilovsky Monastery in Moscow on Wednesday, reports the site of the Moscow Patriarchate.

The Holy Synod decided to include 8 new parishes into the Thailand deanery of the Moscow Patriarchate:

  • The Church of the Life-Giving Trinity in Phuket

  • The Church of All Saints in Pattaya

  • The Church of the Holy Protection of the Most Holy Theotokos in Pattaya

  • The Church of the Ascension of the Lord on Koh Samui

  • The Church of St. Sergius of Radonezh on Koh Chang

  • The Church of the Holy Royal Passion-Bearers in Hua Hin

  • The Church of the Holy Equal-to-the-Apostles Prince Vladimir in Chiang Mi

  • The Church of St. Seraphim of Sarov on Ko Pha-ngan

The Church of St. Seraphim was recently consecrated by His Grace Bishop Anthony of Zvenigorod on December 10. The week before, two new books, a liturgical collection, and The Orthodox Church: History and Teachings by Bishop Alexander (Mileant), were published in the Thai language. The liturgical collection contains the order of services most often celebrated in Thailand parishes for Great Vespers, Festal Matins, the Hours, and the Divine Liturgy.

The representation of the Russian Orthodox Church in the Kingdom of Thailand was formed on December 27, 2011. The patriarchal deanery of parishes in Thailand was created by decision of the Holy Synod on October 21, 2016, and Archimandrite Oleg (Cherepanin) was appointed as dean.
