To the beloved clergy and faithful of the American Carpatho-Russian Orthodox Diocese of the USA
It is with deep sadness that we heard about the falling asleep in the Lord of His Eminence Metropolitan Nicholas of Amissos, Ruling Hierarch of the American Carpatho-Russian Orthodox Diocese. We were aware of his long illness and struggle. The Almighty God called His servant Metropolitan Nicholas to eternal repose in the kingdom of heaven.
I personally shared many moments of friendship with His Eminence Nicholas and I could appreciate his devotion for the Church of Christ, for his clergy and faithful. Metropolitan Nicholas was a remarkable hierarch, a wonderful Shepherd, a good Servant in the Orthodox Church.
We share with all the priests and faithful of the American Carpatho-Russian Orthodox Diocese of the USA the feelings of regret and sorrow. On behalf of the priests and faithful of our Archdiocese, please accept our sincere condolences. We pray our Lord Jesus Christ to establish his soul where the righteous repose. We assure you of our prayers for the soul of His departed servant Metropolitan Nicholas.
May God rest his soul in peace!
