From reading this church's web site, I gather that this is the Ukrainian Church under the omiphorion of Constantinople.  Am I correct?

May God grant His Grace, Bishop Daniel, many years!

Христос Восркес!

PeterTheAleut, you are correct in the jurisdiction.

It was an amazing event.  The Consecration took place in Parma, Ohio.  There were representatives from all over the country and the world!

I am truly blessed to have been able to attend such a glorious event.  I still have a grin plastered on my face, days later. 

People at work have asked what happened to me over the weekend that I seem so happy!

I took hundreds of photos.  (Thank God for digital cameras!)  Once I have a chance to go through them I will be happy to post them.

Many Years to Bishop Daniel!
Mnohaya Lita!

I was hoping to go, but alas fatigue kept me in the house that day.  My dad went, and was definitely moved by the experience.  He was a little disappointed that there weren't more non-Ukranian clergy there (he said he was one of only 3 or 4 Cleveland-area Priests who weren't Ukranian in attendance).  Of course, there were 70+ priests there in addition to the half-dozen bishops...

My priest was there and served at the Vespers on Friday, Fr. Roman.  I stood home to serve Obidna on Sunday.  Wish I could have been there.  Bishop Daniel is a wonderful person and will make a fantastic Bishoop.

Is there a very large Ukranian Orthodox presence in Ohio?  Assuming that the majority of the 70+ priests there were Ukranian, that would seem to indicate that there is.

Cleveland, why do you think that more non-Ukranian Orthodox did not come out?  Was Bishop MARK of the Antiochians present?

It's hard to say that there is a large Ukranian presence anywhere in the U.S. if one uses GOA/OCA/AOA standards.  There is a sizable community in Cleveland, however the majority of those 70+ priests traveled from all over the country, and some from overseas.

Cleveland, why do you think that more non-Ukranian Orthodox did not come out? 

Amongst the clergy?  They probably either (a) had other things going on, or (b) were only getting their first full day of rest since Pascha.  My dad wishes more would come, though.  We can't even begin to fathom national administrative unity when we don't localize it to begin with.  Cleveland isn't too bad - active clergy brotherhood, pan-Orthodox efforts, and the like - but it still isn't where it needs to be (but I dare say no place in the US is yet).

Was Bishop MARK of the Antiochians present? 

No.  IIRC, there were other things going on that day that needed his attention.

My dad had gotten a formal invitation; that doesn't mean they got to everyone, though.

Dear Father, please note that the new bishop, is a Bishop of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church of USA.  I have never heard of the jurisdiction you mentioned.

Does this mean that Bishop Daniel was a monk or priest in the USA for many years and was thus known to the people?  There is not a good biography of him on the church web site, unfortunately.

A number of years ago I met Fr. Andriy Partykevich when he was in Toronto speaking at a conference.  I just wondered why he was never elected a bishop.

Yes, this is the case. His Grace was born in Ukraine, in the city of Ivano-Frankivsk. His mother was able to attend the concentration to the Holy Episcopacy. I spoke to her in Parma - she is also an extremely nice person. Initially, Bishop Daniel was an Eastern Rite Catholic Deacon, a celibate, who converted to Orthodoxy and joined the ranks of UOC-USA in 2000. In 2001, he was ordained to the Holy Priesthood by Archbishop Antony and shortly after that Father Volodymyr (his name at that time) took a monastic tonsure with the name Daniel. He served at Saint Andrew's Memorial Church in South Bound Brook, NJ and at Holy Ascension in Clifton, NJ, (where Father Mitred Protopriest Jakiw Norton serves now), then again in South Bound Brook. Also, he served as a Chaplain in the U.S. Army (after training in Fort Worth). Bishop Daniel handles several responsibilities for a few years - Editor in Chief of Ukrainian Orthodox Word, Dean of Students of Saint Sophia Seminary, Director of the Office of Public Relations of UOC-USA. In those positions, still being a priest, not a hierarch yet, Father Daniel frequently traveled to parishes as a preacher and a confessor. Father Hieromonk Daniel has being elevated to the rank of the Archimandrite and nominated to the Holy Episcopacy at XVIII Sobor Convention of UOC-USA in October 2007, held in South Bound Brook, NJ. I also had an honor to be present there.
The new Hierarch completed undergraduate studies at Ivano-Frankivsk Catholic Seminary. He continued education at Catholic University of America, in Washington, DC. Also, Bishop Daniel holds Masters from University of Balamond, Lebanon, an educational institution, affiliated with Antiochian Patriarchate. The Bishop earned the Doctorate in Ministry at Pittsburgh Theological Academy in 2007.
We are really blessed to see him being a Hierarch now!!! Bishop Daniel is fluent in at least (4) languages: English, Ukrainian, Polish and Russian. Fluent to the level of the absence of an accent in all of those listed languages. Very friendly and spiritual. Bishop Daniel always proactively supports new missions, enjoys talking to cathecumens and recent converts, etc. Always pays attention to every person. Also, Bishop Daniel has a record of leading a number of charitable trips to Ukrainian orphanages for disable children.

So does this mean he is a St. Stephen's Program Bishop?

I am not sure if St. Stephen's program is the only way for the Masters from University of Balamand. Possibly yes. If so, Vladyka Daniel would be probably the first graduate of St. Stephen's in Episcopacy.

In any case, it was only a portion of Bishop Daniel's education. He had Bachelors earned in Ukraine and Masters from Catholic U prior to this, and the Doctorate later.

I know a number of people, who went to St. Stephen's or who study there now and they have a very good opinion about the program. Interesting and clear. It becomes more and more popular in UOC-USA.
