Bishop Matthias (Moriak) has reposed in the Lord

CHICAGO, IL (OCA-DMW) – His Eminence, Archbishop Daniel, has received word that Bishop Matthias (Moriak), retired Bishop of the Diocese of Chicago and the Midwest, reposed this morning (Holy Saturday) after a prolonged illness. Bishop Matthias served as diocesan bishop of the Diocese of the Midwest from 2011 to 2013.

Archbishop Daniel calls upon all the clergy and faithful of the Diocese to remember the newly-departed Bishop Matthias in their prayers throughout the next forty days. As we now celebrate Christ’s victorious resurrection, we pray that Bishop Matthias may share in that victory in the Kingdom of Heaven. Christ is risen! Indeed He is risen!
