      Bishop Nikon meets with DOS deans

      May 31, 2011
      During the meeting of the Holy Synod in
      Chicago, IL, on May 24-27, His
      Grace Bishop Nikon, as Locum Tenens of the
      Diocese of the South,
      conveyed Bishop Mark’s request to be relieved of his
      duties as
      administrator of the Diocese of the South as well as other
      responsibilities given to him previously. The Holy Synod accepted
      Nikon’s recommendations concerning Bishop Mark. Bishop Mark remains as
      guest in the Diocese of the South. In addition to his visits to the
      Dallas area, His Grace Nikon has visited with the clergy and faithful
      the South Florida, Orlando, and Carolinas Deaneries. On Monday and
      Tuesday, May 30 and 31, His Grace chaired a meeting of the deans to
      facilitate and finalize the procedures to be followed by the Episcopal
      Search Committee of the Diocese of the South. During this two-day
      meeting, Bishop Nikon appointed Archpriest Marcus Burch as chancellor
      the Diocese of the South. Fr. Marcus’ duties as Rector of St John of
      the Ladder Orthodox Church in Greenville, SC, and Dean of the Carolinas
      remain the same. Furthermore, upon recommendation of the deans, Bishop
      Nikon appointed the Archpriest Theodore Pisarchuk to be Missions
      Coordinator of the Diocese of the South.
