Georgian Church Celebrates the Restoration of Autocephaly


On March 25th the Georgian Orthodox Church celebrates the restoration of its autocephaly. The Georgian Church gained autocephaly in 457. In 1811 it was abolished by the Russian Empire. The Church's independence was restored in 1917. And thanks to the efforts of the current Catholicos-Patriarch it has been documented. The corresponding letter of Ilia II was received from the Ecumenical Patriarch in 1990.
