Russian Old Calendrists Consecrate Bishop for Serbia

An Old Calendrist schism from the Russian Orthodox Church, the Russian True Orthodox Church under Archbishop Tikhon of Omsk, has consecrated a bishop for a synod of five Old Calendrist parishes and monasteries in Serbia. The consecration is the first of its kind, though some schismatics in the country have hierarchical oversight in the person of the deposed Bishop Artemije of Raska and Prizren. The new bishop, Bishop Akakije of Resavska, was consecrated at the Lesna Monastery in Normandy. More here.
