The '''Holy Synod of Milan''' is the [[diocese]] for Western Europe of that [[Old Calendarist]] Greek Orthodox Church which (after receiving a Hierarchy with the aid of [[bishop]]s of the [[Russian Orthodox Church Outside of Russia]]) was united under Archbishops Akakios and Auxentios, (also known as the ''[[Florinites]]'').
This Diocese was granted a [[Tomos]] of [[Autonomy]] in 1984 from Archbishop Auxentios in order to pursue missionary work among the non-Orthodox people of the West. The title of the Synod at this time was the ''Metropolia of Western Europe''. After the transference of its first Chief Hierarch, Metropolitan Gabriel of Portugal, to the Autocephalous [[Church of Poland]], Bishop Evloghios of Milan was chosen as second Chief Hierarch. Ten years later, Metropolitan Evloghios remains at the helm of the Holy Synod of Bishops. The Milan Synod uses the [[Julian calendar]] exclusively, and firmly resists the heresies of false [[ecumenism]] and trans-religious syncretism.
