AVERTS MAJOR SCHISM,
MAINTAINS EXISTING CANONS
After three years of internal debate over the necessity of an overarching Canon Law, the CEEC.CHURCH’s largest provinces have unanimously agreed to stand together.
They continue to operate under their current version of Canon Law, adopted in 2016.
In a decision guaranteeing the continued historicity and validation of the CEEC.CHURCH, 98% of original churches and clergy choose continuing communion and remain globally united, with only slight adaptation to their name.
