His Eminence Metropolitan Antony was enthroned on January 26, 2013, as the fourth Metropolitan of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the USA during a magnificent and traditional ceremony at St. Andrew the First Called Ukrainian Orthodox Cathedral in Silver Spring, MD. The Enthronement services were attended by more than 500 faithful and about 70 clergymen of the Metropolia and many visitors from across the country from various Orthodox and Catholic jurisdictions.

I'm sure there's a funny joke in there somewhere....but, I don't get it.

I just looked at the pictures.  All the folks that came from near and far!  Bishop Michael Dahulich, Bishop Melchesidek, Archbishop Nathaniel, Bishop Andrij, Met. Yurij, etc...  Archbishop Demtrios, all the priests and laity.  What a wonderful event.  I wish I could have made the trip.

I did not see Bishop Gregorios listed or in the photos but the event was listed under his itinerary on the ACROD site.

Was he there?

There was snow in the mountains and he was unable to attend. It was wonderful to see the OCA Bishops were there though. As to concelebration, at Bishop Gregorios' enthronement three priests concelebrated the liturgy per se and the other hierarchy and clergy came to the sanctuary for communion. I assume that the OCA Bishops did so on Saturday.

Yet no concelebration.

Due to the limited space in the altar, only 3 bishops, 4 priests, and one deacon served.  All the Bishops present communed.

At first I was a little surprised at the number of OCA bishops, who attended, but then I remembered His Beatitude, Metropolitan Tikhon was being enthroned on Sunday.  Wish I could have been there, too, to celebrate with my Metropolitan and also renew an old friendship with His Grace, Bishop Melchesidek.

I hope like for His Grace, Bishop Daniel's consecration, there will be a DVD made of this important event in the life of our UOCofUSA.

I just checked on YouTube and St. Michael's UOC has the video of the Divine Liturgy and the Enthronment:
