St. Andrew Orthodox Mission is a startup mission parish, initially sanctioned by Metropolitan Chrysostomos of Ecuador. Because there is no locum tenens for North America, our parish is overseen directly by Metropolitan Angelos of Avlona, President of the Holy Synod.
Bishop Irineos, Rector
His Beatitude Metropolitan Angelos has assigned Fr. Irineos to St. Andrew Orthodox Mission. Fr. Irineos was ordained to the priesthood in 2015 on the Feast of St. Nektarios at the synodal cathedral in Avlona, Greece. Fr. Irineos has been a student at Holy Three Hierarchs Orthodox Theological Institute. In November 2017, Fr. Irineos was consecrated as a vicar bishop to Metropolitan Angelos, responsible for the mission to North America.
