His Eminence Metropolitan Saba

His Eminence Metropolitan Saba

Dearly beloved in Christ,

Over the last two days, our father in Christ his Beatitude Patriarch John X of Antioch, and all the East has met with the Holy Synod of Antioch to elect the next Metropolitan of our beloved Archdiocese. After a special convention in January, our Archdiocese sent over three names to the Holy Synod that they might consider especially in their deliberations: Metropolitan Saba, Bishop John, and Bishop Nicholas. The Holy Synod has elected Metropolitan Saba to be our next Metropolitan. May it be blessed!

Great strength to you all as we approach the beginning of the Great Fast. May we all be encouraged and strengthened by our next chief shepherd of North America.

Peace and joy in Christ.

Fr. Benjamin Kjendal
