Metropolitan Methodios Will Represent Archbishop Demetrios at the Republican National Convention
Aug 29, 2012
NEW YORK – Metropolitan Methodios of Boston was asked by Archbishop Demetrios of America to offer on behalf of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese the Orthodox Christian prayer tonight at the Republican National Convention in Tampa, Fla., immediately following the acceptance speech of vice presidential nominee Paul Ryan. Originally, the Archbishop was scheduled to offer the benediction but was unable to do so due to his travel to the Ecumenical Patriarchate in Constantinople.
Metropolitan Methodios will meet with several officials of the Republican Party including the Greek Orthodox Chairman of the RNC Reince Priebus, who is also an Archon of the Ecumenical Patriarchate.
