Metropolitan Nathanael Symeonides, who was enthroned as the new leader of the Greek Orthodox Church in Chicago on Saturday, said the “starting point” of his ministry will be to help people center their lives around Christ.
Symeonides was elected after a decadeslong tenure by his predecessor, Metropolitan Iakovos, who died in June last year. He now leads the Metropolis of Chicago, spanning six Midwestern states with nearly 60 parishes.
