The Rt. Rev. Archimandrite John Abdalah, of the Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania area, on Saturday was elected auxiliary bishop of the Antiochian Orthodox Archdiocese of Worcester and New England. The consecration may be delayed for a brief time, due to uncertainty over the location.

From the article:
Quote
But the timetable is not definite on when the Rt. Rev. Archimandrite John Abdalah of St. George Antiochian Orthodox Cathedral in Oakland and two others elected auxiliary bishop will be elevated because of the unrest in the Middle East.

"It hasn't been determined if the consecrations will take place in this archdiocese or the Middle East," Father Abdalah, 57, said Monday. "It will happen soon. I would imagine within the next three months."

Many years!  :angel:

Axios! (is it too early?)
"The soul is dyed the color of its thoughts. Think only on those things that are in line with your principles and can bear the light of day. The content of your character is your choice. Day by day, what you do is who you become. Your integrity is your destiny--it is the light that guides your way." - Heraclitus

Is there a specific service for consecrating auxiliary bishops?
Do we need to add an * to the "Axios!" proclamations?

If anything I have posted has been illuminating, please remember that I merely reflect the light of others...but also it's me.

Consecration and enthronements are two different things. I believe all bishops are consecrated in the same way.
