And yesterday, on the new calendar feast of the Holy Hierarch and Wonderworker Nicholas, His Eminence Metropolitan Petar of Prespa and Pelagonia, administrator of the Macedonian Diocese of Australia and New Zealand, concelebrated with His Eminence Metropolitan Basilios of the Antiochian Archdiocese of Australia, New Zealand, and the Philippines, the Macedonian diocese reports.

The Holy Synod of the Antiochian Orthodox Church officially recognized in October the canonicity and autocephaly of the Macedonian Church, which it received from the Serbian Church in June.
