Congratulations to ROCOR's newly elected Metropolitain!


ARAA-Otrada would like to express our prayers and well-wishes to the newly elected First Hierarch of the Russian Orthodox Church Outside of Russia. Bishop Nicholas of Manhattan, who is very familiar to our members and who actively supports our organization and mission, was elected by his brother bishops and will serve as the Metropolitan of Eastern America and New York. On Saturday (9/17/2022), His Grace will be elevated to the rank of Metropolitan and will receive the blue mantle and white klobuk. On Sunday (9/18/2022), His Eminence will head the liturgy in the Cathedral of the Sign and will be enthroned and will receive his First Hierarch’s staff. The board and membership of ARAA-Otrada proclaim the traditional greeting of support: Axios, Axios, Axios.  


АРСП- Отрада молится и посылает все наилучшие пожелания новоизбранному Первоиерарху Русской Православной Церкви Заграницей. Епископ Николай Манхэттенский, хорошо известный нашим членам и который активно поддерживает нашу организацию и её цели, был избран своими собратьями епископами и будет Митрополитом Восточно-Американским и Нью-Йоркским. В субботу (17 9 2022), Его Преосвященство будет возведён в сан митрополита и оденет голубую мантию и белый клобук. В воскресенье (18 9 2022), Его Высокопреосвященство возглавит литургию в Знаменском Соборе и пройдёт настолование и вручение Первоиераршего жезла. Совет директоров и члены  АРСП- Отрада провозглашают традиционное поздравление: Аксиос, Аксиос, Аксиос.
