The new Archbishop of Crete
September 26, 2006
The new Archbishop of Crete, Irenaios, leads a procession through the rain-soaked streets of Iraklion towards the Aghios Minas Cathedral for his enthronement yesterday. The Ecumenical Patriarchate named Irenaios as the new archbishop of Crete last month. The 73-year-old Irenaios takes over the post following the death of Archbishop Timotheos in July. Timotheos had served in the position for 28 years.
