New Bishop Consecrated for Belarusian Autocephalous Orthodox Church

Two hierarchs associated with one of the schisms from the Ukrainian Autocephalous Orthodox Church, one of them formerly under the Kiev Patriarchate (more on that here), and the head of the Belarusian Autocephalous Orthodox Church, Bishop Sviataslau (Lohin) of Navahrudak, have consecrated Archimandrite Serafim (Chykity) as Bishop of Vilnius to assist Bishop Sviatoslav in his shepherding of the 10 parishes of the BAOC in Belarus and the Belorussian Diaspora. The consecration took place in Brooklyn's Cathedral of St. Cyril of Turov. More (in Belorussian) here.
