I'm sorry to hear that. What were they doing in England?

According to the local website :

"As of Thursday 7th / 20th September 2018, the Sobor of Bishops of the Russian Orthodox Church Outside of Russia has appointed His Grace Bishop Irenei as Ruling Hierarch of our Diocese of Great Britain and Ireland, as well as the Diocese of Western Europe, with the title of Bishop of Richmond and Western Europe."

The reason given was the Consecration of the Rocor-MP London Cathedral on Harvard Road, which took place the next day, on the Nativity of the Mother of God. But it seems clear that the Synodal meeting referred to above was set to confirm their youngest bishop by consecration to fill this vacant see [ actually 2 vacant sees, UK and Western Europe ].

So they were far away across the Atlantic. Maybe the 45th anniversary will be celebrated with full honors due to St Xenia.

By the way, the 20th of September was the repose of Elder Macarius of Optina ; this was not mentioned anywhere due to the focus on the Feast Day of the Birth of the Mother of God the following day. Poor Elder Macarius : it's like having a birthday on Christmas Eve : no one will remember it !
