Fr. Matthias made Bishop-elect of the Midwest

Syosset, NY –  The Synod of Bishops of the Orthodox Church in America in its fall session canonically elected Fr. Matthias Moriak to become the bishop of Chicago and the Diocese of the Midwest.    Fr. Matthias had previously been nominated by the clergy and lay delegates to the special assembly of the Midwest Diocese held in October in Minneapolis.  His consecration as bishop is being planned for May of  2011.

A biography of the 61 year old Fr. Matthias is now available on the OCA’s webpage.

May God grant him many years!
