The Triprosopon was formed for the Metropolis of New Jersey

His Eminence Archbishop Elpidophoros of America presided over a special meeting of the Holy Eparchial Synod which was convened through videoconference.

The Eparchial Synod unanimously approved this proposal and then proceeded to form the three-candidate list (triprosopon).

The confidential voting process was based on the List of Clergy eligible for election fulfilling the Conditions of Article 14 of the Charter of the Archdiocese recently approved by the Ecumenical Patriarchate (June 15, 2023).

The Triprosopon for the Metropolis of New Jersey was determined as follows:

His Grace Bishop Apostolos of Medeia with eight votes;

The Very Reverend Archimandrite of the Ecumenical Throne Anton Vrame with five votes;

The Very Reverend Archimandrite George Nikas with four votes.

The Archbishop will submit by letter today, the Triprosopon to the Ecumenical Patriarchate and to the Holy and Sacred Synod to serve as the basis for the canonical election of a new Metropolitan of New Jersey.
