Bringing to a close an initial round of prayerful consideration, which began shortly after the repose of the ever-memorable Archbishop Nikon in 2019, the Albanian Orthodox Archdiocese has inaugurated a new period of reflection and recruitment in its search for a bishop. Proposed and endorsed by popular acclamation at the September annual assembly of the archdiocese, this renewed process invites all potential candidates to submit their names for consideration. Interested parties are strongly encouraged to reach out to the Archdiocesan Chancery for more information. Due by November 12, submissions will be reviewed and thereafter submitted to the Holy Synod.
The faithful of the Albanian Archdiocese request the prayers of all their brothers and sisters in Christ, that His will may be done, and they kindly ask also that others aid them in this renewed endeavor, sharing this appeal broadly with any who may be interested and capable to serve.
