“Father announced from the Amvon today that the Holy Synod, under Archbishop Nicholas of Athens & all Greece, has elected him to be Bishop of New York.
The date of his Consecration to the Episcopacy will be 31 May in Greece. His official Enthronement here will be, God willing, 21 October. I will forward you any further details as they become available.
This news has come as quite a shock, especially as we lost my dear Mother only seven months ago. We ask for your loving prayers and support as Father takes on this new yoke.
Father extends his loving regards to you all. We forbid him a Facebook account, so he has asked me to be his proxy on this medium. I beg you for your continued prayers and support for our dear Father Anthony.”
