BURBANK, IL [DOM Communications] – The 27th of December, the feast of St. Stephen the First Martyr, marks the anniversary of Archbishop Paul’s consecration to the holy episcopate. It was seven years ago today, that His Beatitude Metropolitan Tikhon, along with other hierarchs, clergy and faithful from all over the country gathered at Holy Trinity Cathedral for this joyous event in the life of the diocese.
Archbishop Paul has been an example of dedication in his work to serve the Diocese of the Midwest. Even during these challenging times, he continues to travel the eleven states in his territory to minister to his people. He continues to develop ministries to unite the diocese, and to foster vocation. The Holy Synod of the Orthodox Church in America also elevated him to rank of Archbishop in May of 2020.
On behalf of Archpriest Paul Jannakos, the diocesan staff, clergy and faithful of the Midwest; Axios and congratulations to our Archpastor. Many years!
