Archbishop Irineu of Alba Iulia Enthroned

The Romanian Orthodox Church's newly elected Archbishop Irineu (Pop) of Alba Iulia was enthroned over the weekend by Metropolitan Andrei of Cluj in the presence of Patriarch Daniel (Ciobotea) of Bucharest and many other hierarchs of the Church of Romania and hundreds of the faithful of the Archdiocese of Alba Iulia. In the practice of the Romanian Orthodox Church metropolitans enthrone their suffragan archbishops and bishops, whilst the patriarch enthrones the metropolitans. More (in Romanian) here.
