New Bishop of Yakutsk Consecrated in Moscow

Earlier today Patriarch Kirill (Gundyayev) of Moscow and All Rus' together with twelve hierarchs of the Russian and Georgian Orthodox Churches consecrated Archimandrite Roman (Lukin) as Bishop of Yakutsk and the Lena in Moscow's Church of Christ the Savior. In his address to Bishop Roman following the festal services Patriarch Kirill called on the new shepherd of Yakutia to "be the protector of this [Yakut] nation and...the father of all believers." More (in Russian) here and here.
