NEW YORK---His Eminence Archbishop Spyridon announced today that he will personally assume the position of Locum Tenens for the Diocese of Detroit, effective immediately. The Archbishop will serve until a new Bishop is elected for the Diocese by the Holy Synod of the Ecumenical Patriarchate.
In making the announcement, His Eminence said that His Grace Bishop Maximos, who has served in that capacity since July 1995, had asked to be relieved of his duties as Locum Tenens because, in the meantime, he has assumed several additional responsibilities including chairman of the Synodical Committee appointed several months ago for Hellenic College/ Holy Cross School of Theology.
