Tenth Anniversary of Metropolitan Antony’s Enthronement
(UOC-USA) Ten years ago His Eminence Metropolitan Antony was formally Enthroned as the 4th Metropolitan of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the USA in St. Andrew the First Called Apostle Ukrainian Orthodox Cathedral in Silver Spring, MD.
In the presence of 20 hierarchs, representing various Orthodox jurisdictions of North America and representatives of Catholic and other Christian communities, His Eminence received his Archpastoral staff of the Prime Hierarch of the Church.
On January 30th His Eminence Metropolitan Antony celebrates his Name’s Day (St. Anthony the Great) and his birthday.
On behalf of the clergy, members of the Council of Metropolia, the Consistory and faithful of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the USA we pray that our Lord will grant him peace, safety, honor, health and length of days “rightly teaching” the word of God’s truth.
Axios! Eis polla eti despota! God grant you many and blessed years! Многая і благая літа!
