In Memoriam: Metropolitan Constantine of the UOCUSA
Metropolitan Constantine (Buggan) of Irinoupolis and the Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the USA and the Diaspora fell asleep today at the age of seventy-six. A native of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Metropolitan Constantine served the UOCUSA in various capacities for forty-five years, forty of those years as a hierarch of either the independent Ukrainian Autocephalous Orthodox Church (UAOC) or the UOCUSA (after much of the UAOC in the Ukrainian Diaspora was received into the Ecumenical Patriarchate). May his memory be eternal! More information on Metropolitan Constantine's life can be found here.
