Released November 17, 2022:  Below please find is a press release with regard to the recent elevation of Fr. Nikodhim to Archimandrite and appointment as Administrator of the Albanian Archdiocese as well as the designation of Archbishop Mark of Philadelphia and Eastern Pennsylvania as the new locum tenens for the Albanian Archdiocese.   

 

Holy Synod confirms Episcopal nomination of Father Nikodhim
 
“The Holy Synod, at its recent regular fall 2022 session, has received this nomination with joy and looks forward to your ordination to the episcopacy, by the grace of God, next fall. In all ways therefore it is clear that you have already proved yourself able to be an archimandrites: a ruler of the sheepfold. Today the holy Synod recognizes this fact by honoring you with the title Archimandrite.”
 
Concluding the meetings of the Holy Synod and celebrating the tenth anniversary of his own service as Metropolitan of the Orthodox Church in America, His Beatitude, Metropolitan Tikhon, addressed Fr. Nikodhim with the above words at last Sunday’s Divine Liturgy. From the heart of the monastery Church of St. Tikhon’s and with his brother hierarchs surrounding him, he admonished the newly elevated archimandrite to continue in his service to the faithful of the Albanian Orthodox Archdiocese. By decision of the Holy Synod, Fr. Nikodhim was named administrator of the same.
 
During their time together, the Synod also designated Archbishop Mark of Philadelphia and Eastern Pennsylvania as the new locum tenens for the Albanian Archdiocese. With his long experience in both Byzantine and Slavic service practices and a pronounced talent for shoring up the administrative needs of his own diocese, Abp. Mark embraced this new obligation, promising his care and guidance to the clergy and faithful of this diocesan family.
 
To Archbishop Mark, locum tenens of the Albanian Archdiocese, and to Fr. Nikodhim, its new administrator, many years! Për shumë vjet!
