New Archbishop of Alba Iulia Elected

The Holy Synod of the Romanian Orthodox Church has, in consultation with the Archdiocesan Assembly of Alba Iulia, elected auxiliary Bishop Irineu (Pop) of Bistrita as Archbishop of Alba Iulia. His enthronement is scheduled to take place on the Sunday of the Fathers of the First Council of Nicaea. The new Archbishop of Alba Iulia was born in Romania, but prior to his consecration to the episcopacy served as a priest in the patriarchal Romanian Orthodox Church in the United States.
