OVERALL DESCRIPTION:
     An awesome and historic event in the life of the Orthodox Church in North America took place on November 1st and 2nd, 2002, at the beautiful St. George Romanian Orthodox Cathedral in metro-Detroit, Michigan. Eight hierarchs of different jurisdictions, presided over by His Beatitude, Metropolitan HERMAN, Primate of the Orthodox Church in America (OCA), consecrated Archimandrite IRINEU (Duvlea) as Auxiliary Bishop to His Eminence, NATHANIEL, Archbishop of Detroit and the Romanian Orthodox Episcopate of America (OCA). The other 7 hierarchs who concelebrated with Metropolitan HERMAN were: the host, Archbishop NATHANIEL (Romanian Episcopate, OCA); Metropolitan CHRISTOPHER (Patriarchal Serbian Metropolitanate); Archbishop KYRILL (Bulgarian Diocese, OCA); Archbishop NICOLAE (Patriarchal Romanian Archdiocese); Bishop SERAPHIM (Canadian Archdiocese, OCA); Bishop DEMETRI (Antiochian Archdiocese); and Bishop NIKON (Albanian Archdiocese, OCA).

Produced for the Romanian Orthodox Episcopate of America (OCA) by ST. INNOCENT/FIREBIRD Videos, Audios & Books,this all-digital, professional video production allows you to experience this magnificent event up-close. The Divine Services are beautiful 3-camera productions, and the Hierarchal Divine Liturgy includes considerable footage in the altar/sanctuary.
    Not only do these videos of the complete Services, (plus the Reception and Consecration Banquet), allow you to vicariously participate in this milestone in American Orthodoxy, but they also are of enormous educational value on many levels—it is fascinating to view what happens during the consecration of a bishop,  and to see what happens at the altar during a Hierarchal Divine Liturgy, and during the ordination of a deacon. In addition, the videos enable the homebound, and others who cannot get to church, to pray the Divine Liturgy and Vespers. The marvelous sound-track features a combined choir, conducted by the Cathedral Choir Director, Valerie Yova Sheets, and the Assistant Director, Subdeacon John E. Lazar, augmented by the visiting TEOFANIA Male Chorus from the Theological School in Sibiu, Romania. In English and Romanian.
