Nikitas Mellios from the Philippines; and Orthodox Christian Mission Center (OCMC) Executive Director, Fr. Martin Ritsi. A reception was held at The Grand Stage restaurant following the enthronement.

Of His Eminence’s enthronement Fr. Martin offered, “This was a momentous occasion as the new Metropolitan responsible for the largest mission frontier on the planet officially begins his ministry. It is our prayer that the Lord will strengthen him and bring him vision and courage.”

Elected to succeed His Eminence Nikitas on January 20th, 2008, His Eminence Nektarios will serve as Metropolitan of Hong Kong, with jurisdiction over Orthodox parishes in the People’s Republic of China, Taiwan, the Philippines, Thailand, Laos, Vietnam, Cambodia and Myanmar.
