Rev. Strongylis to be Metropolitan

Archimandrite, Rev. Dr. Cleopas Strongylis, Dean of the Cathedral of Boston, was elected Metropolitan of Sweden and All Scandinavia by the Holy Synod of the Ecumenical Patriarchate on Monday morning, May 5. Demark is also within the jurisdiction of the Metropolis.

According to information received by The National Herald, the elevation will most likely take place on May 21, the Feast Day of Sts. Constantine and Helen at the Patriarchate, with Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew presiding.

More to come.
