Sunday, October the 10-th 1999, His Beatitude †Stefan - the
fifth successive Head of Macedonian Orthodox Church since the restoring
of the autocephalous Ohrid Archbishopric was enthroned on the throne
of the Archbishop of Ohrid and Macedonia. His election was conducted
in accordance with the Constitution and provisions of the Macedonian
Orthodox Church for adoption by the Assembly in accordance with
the cannon of the Orthodox Church.
This Holy Ordination was held at the Archbishopric Cathedral Church
St Sophia in Ohrid Macedonia, which has been the sacred place for
the witnessing of Macedonian Christian Orthodox faith since the
11-th Century in Ohrid.
As a helmsman of the Macedonian spiritual ship just like his predecessors,
His Beatitude †Stefan, Archbishop of Ohrid and Macedonia,
will surely leave his mark “…because to be a Head of
our holy Macedonian Church, in this times, one needs additional
strength and a lots of wisdom in order to find truly God-pleasing
solutions for everyday life of the church and for the conduct of
each and every one of us…”.
The American-Canadian Diocese of Macedonian Orthodox Church, as
of now is under supervision of Episcope Methodius.
