New Orthodox Church in America primate enthroned

admin | 27 January 2013

The enthronement of the new primate of the Orthodox Church in America, Metropolitan Tikhon, has taken place at the St. Nicholas Cathedral in Washington.

The ceremony was attended by Administrator of the Patriarchal Parishes in the USA, Archbishop of Naro-Fominsk Justinian. He conveyed to the Metropolitan greetings and congratulations from the Patriarch of Moscow and All Russia Kirill, and reminded that the Russian Church is the American’s “mater.”

At the same time, it recognizes the full independence of the OCA, said the archbishop.

He presented the American Metropolitan with an icon of Tikhon of Zadonsk, with a portion of his relics.

In his response, Tikhon expressed his profound appreciation to Patriarch Kirill and the entire Russian Church “for the love and support.”
