      UOC MP Leader's likely successor elevated to Metropolitan
      Archbishop Antoniy (Pakanich), UOC MP administrator, first vicar of the Kievan metropolia, rector of the Kievan spiritual academy and seminary, was elevated to the rank of metropolitan, on January 19, the feast of the lord's baptism, reports "Religia v Ukraine" [Religion in Ukraine], citing the Kievan spiritual Academy & Seminary.
      The elevation  "for devoted service to the Church" was held in the Refectory Church of the Kievan Caves Lavra during a hierarchical liturgy lead by the Leader of the UOC MP, Metropolitan Vladimir, and concelebrated by other bishops.
      Observers most often refer to Metropolitan Anthony as the likely successor to Metropolitan Vladimir as Leader. The new rank is additional confirmation of this scenario.
