New Greek Orthodox Auxiliary Bishop for the USA Elected in Constantinople

The Holy Synod the Constantinopolitan Orthodox Church has elected Archimandrite Sevastianos (Skordallos) as Bishop of Zela and auxiliary to Archbishop Demetrios (Trakatellis) of New York of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America. Axios! Bishop-elect Sevastianos, a native of Cyprus, is to be consecrated to the episcopacy this coming Saturday by Archbishop Demetrios and other hierarchs of the Constantinopolitan Orthodox Church in North America. More here and here.


  1. To Orthodoxy in general? Its bishops were present at at least two of the ecumenical councils. To Greek Orthodoxy? The town was the seat of a diocese until the 11th century. To American Orthodoxy? None that I'm aware of :-).
