My wife, two daughters, and I were blessed to attend the consecration of Archimandrite Jonah to the episcopacy of the Orthodox Church in America this morning.  We are doubly blessed, for his see will be our parish in Fort Worth.

Along with his consecration, we witnessed the ordination of a priest and a deacon, the blessing of a subdeacon, and the tonsuring of a reader.

Many years to all God's newly-appointed servants.  Αχιοι, αχιοι, αχιοι!

(pssst - at little non-Halloween gathering last night, my priest was saying that Fr. Basil Rhodes is actively campaigning for him to be the new Metropolitan.)

He requested an auxiliary bishop, which the Synod granted.

Veniamin beat me to it.

Vladyka DMITRI is still the Archbishop of Dallas and the South.  Bishop JONAH is actually the Abp's auxiliary bishop, but since every bishop, auxiliary or not, has to have a see somewhere, he was given the next largest city adjacent to Dallas -- namely, Fort Worth.

It was good to hear at Vespers last night, "For his Eminence DMITRI...and for his Grace our Bishop JONAH..."  We're the only church where that's said, because he's only really bishop of our parish...

82?  Try more like 86 or 87.

Thank you both for the information.
