 At the conclusion of the Hierarchical Divine Liturgy His Eminence bestowed upon the Rev. Deacon Konstantinos Loukas the Offikion of Archdeacon of the Greek Orthodox Metropolis of New Jersey. AXIOS to the new Archdeacon.


The enthronement of new Metropolitan Apostolos of New Jersey took place amid much excitement at the Saint John the Theologian Greek Orthodox Cathedral, Tenafly, New Jersey, on September 16, 2023. The word “Axios” was heard many times during the enthronement ceremony.

Many Metropolitans of the Greek Archdiocese of America, Archons of the Ecumenical Patriarchate, and members of the Greek government attended the enthronement.

In his homily, Archbishop Elpidophoros of America pointed out that the enthronement “bodes well for this God-Protected Metropolis, and for our Sacred Archdiocese; for His Eminence Apostolos now joins the fraternity of the Holy Eparchial Synod, where his years of experience and wisdom will bring a new dimension to its sacred deliberations.”


The Archbishop also expressed gratitude to Metropolitan Kyrillos of Rhodes, Representative of the Ecumenical Patriarchate, as well as to representatives from so many of the parishes, Church organizations, and members of the Greek Community.
