[orthodox-synod] Re: Departed Hierarchs of ROCOR
- Dear Fr. David,
Thank you for your wonderful work
A couple of corrections:
Bishop Nathaniel and Archbishop Nathaniel are the same person.
Bishop Philotheos and Archbishop Philotheos are the same person.
I believe Bishop John (Zlobin) was consecrated in 1945.
And, regarding the term "ordained" . . . it is generally the custom to

- Dear Fr. David,
Not to take anything away from your efforts, but I remember hearing a few
years back that a Seminarian at Jordanville was working on a list (or even
short biography) of all the ROCOR bishops as his Baccalaureate thesis.
Perhaps you could contact Fr. Peter at the Seminary to find out if this
effort was completed, and if it had been, get a copy of it?

- Dear List Members,
Regarding the reposed hierarchs of ROCOR, how about adding to the list
any other bishops they may have ordained such as Bishops Petros of Astoria?
While not a part of the ROCOR synod, being with one of the Old Calendar Greek
synods instead, he was raised to the episcopacy through our bishops and
maintained relations with us.
By the way, the Southern Missions conference was really life changing
for me. It was a great blessing to be there with Bishop Gabriel, the clergy
and laity, as well as the wonder working icons. I highly recommend next
year's conference to everyone! It is a big "dose" of Grace.

- Dear Nectarios,
May the Lord bless you.
While it might be a very interesting project to collect information of
departed Hierarchs that were concecrated in, or were at one time a part
of ROCOR, I would like to keep that project quite seperate from this. It
is a listing of all Hierarchs who departed this life in the Russian
Orthodox Church Outside of Russia.
I became interested in this listing of Hierarchs originally because I
wanted to commemorate all the departed Hierarchs of our Church at the
Proskomedia before each Liturgy I serve. I am
