New Candidate Considered for Diocese of Sitka

It appears that the Diocese of Sitka and Alaska of the American Orthodox Church will nominate Archimandrite Juvenaly (Repass), a monk of St. Tikhon of Zadonsk's Monastery in South Canaan, Pennsylvania, currently serving at St. Herman's Theological Seminary in Kodiak, Alaska, for election as Bishop of Sitka. The candidate formerly under consideration for the vacant Sitka cathedra, Archimandrite Gerasim (Eliel), appears to be out of the running due to his desire to finish his studies at St. Vladimir's Theological Seminary in Crestwood, New York. Fr. Juvenaly was previously a candidate for nomination for election to the cathedra of the Diocese of Pittsburgh and Western Pennsylvania. More here.
