His Grace Bishop-elect of Hexamilion Timothy Bakakos will be ordained a Bishop on Saturday, December 5, 2020, at the Cathedral of the Saints Constantine and Helen in Merrillville, Indiana.

His Eminence Archbishop Elpidophoros of America will preside over the ordination and concelebrate with members of the Holy Eparchial Synod, including His Eminence Metropolitan Nathanael of Chicago and other Hierarchs.

Unfortunately, the COVID-19 pandemic has limited our ability to freely gather in large numbers and many friends of His Grace will only be able to participate through the livestream of the service. If you are unable to join us in person on December 5, we hope that you can join in spirit and prayer via livestream.

An internet video broadcast of the Divine Liturgy and the ordination service will be livestreamed on the Metropolis of Chicago Facebook Page ( and YouTube Channel (

We thank you for your prayers, love, and support of His Grace Bishop-elect Timothy of Hexamilion. His Grace’s biographical information can be found HERE.
