South Ossetian Bishop on Leave

According to the website of the Synod in Resistance of the Greek Orthodox Church Bishop George of Alania, the only Orthodox Christian hierarch caring for the Orthodox faithful in South Ossetia due to the tensions between the Churches of Russia and Georgia over their canonical status, is on a year's leave of absence from his diocese due to health issues. In the meantime Bishop Ambrose of Methone is responsible for the care of the diocese. More here.
