Rejoice! A new bishop for the Diocese of the South!

You'd be hard-pressed to find a more kind and considerate man to help shepherd the good people of the Diocese of the South. A long-awaited Axios! to Bishop Gerasim.

(OCA) - On Tuesday, May 18, 2021, the Holy Synod of Bishops of the Orthodox Church in America, meeting in their regular Spring 2021 Session under the presidency of His Beatitude Metropolitan Tikhon, canonically elected the Very Reverend Archimandrite Gerasim (Eliel) Bishop of Fort Worth, Auxiliary to His Eminence Archbishop Alexander and the Diocese of the South.


  1. AXIOS!

    I had the honor of meeting his excellency many years ago when was the abbot of St. Herman's and he was kind enough to grant me the hospitality of the monastery for a weekend. Both from my own memories and everything I have heard about vladyka makes me rejoice in this news.

  2. It may be premature, but Axios and Eis Polla Eti Despota!
