New Bishop of Sitka to be Consecrated in 2011?

Forgive me for overlooking this until now, but it appears that the close of the 16th All-American Council this coming summer will be shortly followed by the consecration in Sitka of a new bishop for the American Orthodox Church's Diocese of Alaska. More here. That's all that's been said for the time being, but presumably Archimandrite Gerasim (Eliel), currently a student at St. Vladimir's Seminary in Crestwood, New York, and previously abbot of St. Herman of Alaska's Monastery in Platina, California, will be the one being consecrated in Sitka. Provided, of course, that the consecration is still on the calendar when the current confusion is resolved.
