Bishop Iakovos Consecrated in Sydney

Fr. Iakovos (Tsigounis) has been consecrated Bishop of Meletoupolis in Sydney! Axios! His consecration coincided with the 25th anniversary of St. Andrew's Theological College on the compound of Holy Annunciation Cathedral in Redfern, New South Wales, and was well attended. Bishop Iakovos' title is the same as that held by Archbishop Stylianos (Harkianakis) of Sydney during his service under the Ecumenical Patriarchate in Greek-occupied Macedonia.

The newly consecrated Bishop Iakovos will be serving under Archbishop Stylianos in the Australian states of Victoria and Tasmania. God grant him many, many years in His service!
