On Saturday, July 11, the newly elected Bishop of Christoupolis, Emmanuel, will take place at the Church of the Ascension of the Savior in Berlin.
The Divine Liturgy will be live-streamed from 9 a.m. on parish’s official Facebook page because the COVID-19 pandemic does not allow the gathering of the faithful on the day of the ordination, except for those who have been registered.
The Metropolis of Germany has also announced that the new assistant bishop will be conducting the services daily at 9 a.m. on July 12-18 at the Church of the Ascension of the Savior in Berlin. In this way, the faithful, who will not be able to attend the ordination ceremony, will be able to congratulate him on his new ministry. It is necessary that the faithful who wish to attend theses services must be registered prior.
Afterwards, the newly ordained bishop will gradually visit the parishes of the Holy Metropolis so that all the faithful have the opportunity to congratulate him.
