Updates on the Enthronement of Metropolitan Joseph

Planning continues for the weekend of December 5-7, and the enthronement of His Eminence Metropolitan Joseph and the visit of His Beatitude Patriarch John X of Antioch and All the East, at St. Nicholas Cathedral in Brooklyn, NY. Check our enthronement section for the latest information and resources.

Update October 31: Our block of hotel rooms at the Brooklyn Marriott is sold out for Friday and Saturday evening. You can try booking directly at marriott.com. You may continue to check the original link as rooms may pop up from time to time if people cancel. You can also check other hotels in the area including the Sheraton Brooklyn.

Update October 27: While seating for the Saturday banquet will be reserved, seating in the Cathedral for the general public for all services will be on a first-come, first-served basis. There will be closed-circuit television in the basement of the Cathedral for the overflow crowd. We plan to live-stream both the enthronement and the Patriarchal Divine Liturgy via antiochian.org and NOURSAT, that will be providing live coverage. Check back for details closer to the weekend.

Congratulate Metropolitan Joseph and Welcome Patriarch John X in Commemorative Enthronement Journal

To honor Metropolitan Joseph on the auspicious occasion of his enthronement as Archbishop of New York and Metropolitan of All North America, a commemorative journal is being prepared. If you would like to express your congratulations to our new Metropolitan and welcome our father in Christ John X, Patriarch of Antioch and All the East, you can place an order for a journal entry via the online order form available here. We thank the Antiochian Events team for constructing this secure and simple order form. 

The journal will be published and distributed to all attendees and contributors. The journal will include greetings from the Archdiocese, Dioceses, Parishes, parishioners, and contributors. Since this is a journal commemorating His Eminence's enthronement and not a typical souvenir journal, only messages welcoming His Beatitude, Patriarch John X and/or congratulatory messages to His Eminence, Metropolitan Joseph will be accepted.
