(OCA) - His Beatitude, Metropolitan Tikhon, will be enthroned as the Primate of the Orthodox Church in America at Saint Nicholas Cathedral, Washington, DC on Sunday, January 27, 2013.
The announcement was issued by the Holy Synod of Bishops on Friday, November 30, 2012. Metropolitan Tikhon was elected at the 17th All-American Council in Parma, OH November 13.
On Saturday, January 26, the Vigil will be celebrated at 5:00 p.m. Sunday’s Divine Liturgy and Rite of Enthronement will begin at 9:00 a.m. A banquet will follow.
The enthronement will be celebrated in conjunction with the annual March for Life in the US capital on Friday, January 25. How fortuitous!
