Frs. Elpidophorus and Stephen Elected Metropolitans

Archimandrite Elpidophoros (Lamvriniadis), most memorable for his past attacks on the American Orthodox Church (OCA), has been elected Metropolitan of Brusa by the Holy Synod of the Constantinopolitan Orthodox Church. The protosingelus of the Ecumenical Patriarchate was also elected Metropolitan of Callioupolis and Madytus at the same session of the Holy Synod.

Metropolitan-elect Stephen of Callioupolis will be consecrated this coming Sunday. Metropolitan-elect Elpidophoros is to be consecrated on the Sunday of St. Gregory Palamas. More here.
