On November 19, 2017 (November 6 OS), the Feast of Sainted Paul the Confessor, Bishop of Constantinople, Fr. Irineos was consecrated as the Titular Bishop of Illyricum, and assigned as the Vicar Bishop of Metropolitan Angelos for North America. The decision of the Synod to appoint a Vicar to North America affirms the Synod’s commitment to the growth of True Orthodoxy in North America. An episcopal presence will expedite the ability of the Synod to tonsure clergy to minor orders, establish missions and care for the clergy and faithful in North America.
In addition to his duties as Vicar for the Metropolitan, Bishop Irineos continues his assignment as Rector of St. Andrew Orthodox Mission in Liberty Hill, Texas.
Eis polla eti, Despota!
