There was a serious crisis (from December 2009 to June 2010) in the Diocese of Western and Central Europe after the statements of Bishop Tikhon.
Bishop Tikhon was removed from the Diocese of Western and Central Europe and appointed rector/proistamenos of the Patriarchal Cathedral of St. Alexander Nevsky, Sofia in December 2009.
The Synod also removed Metropolitan Simeon from his post and appointed a Metropolitan from Bulgaria (Met. Galaction of Stara Zagora) as administrator of the Diocese with the task to organize the election of a new Metropolitan. This decision of the Synod was not accepted by Met. Simeon and the majority of parishes, some even said that if Met. Galaction came to their parish they would not let him enter the church, etc. They said they preferred to change the jurisdiction and leave the Bulgarian Patriarchate if Met. Simeon was not restored.
The reason for the decision was that Met. Simeon, who is an American citizen, had not lived in his Diocese, but in Phoenix, AZ for most of the time in the past several years, due to his advanced age and health problems, but has no desire to retire. According to the Constitution of the Bulgarian Patriarchate if a Diocesan Bishop (in the Patriarchate of Bulgaria all the Diocesan Bishops are Metropolitans) does not live in his Diocese for such a long period, he must be deposed from his office. During these years the Diocese was practically administrated by Bishop Tikhon, his Auxiliary bishop.
In June 2010, the Holy Synod decided to restore Met. Simeon as Diocesan Metropolitan and appointed Bishop Anthony as new Auxiliary, who served his first liturgy in the Diocese last Sunday in the Diocesan Cathedral in Berlin - some pictures here http://www.dveri.bg/content/view/11685/33/
