On August 29, 2018 The Holy and Sacred Synod of the Ecumenical Patriarchate of Constantinople voted to elevate His Grace, Bishop Gregory to the rank of Metropolitan. Axios! Axios! Axios!

In a special Archpastoral Letter to the Clergy and Faithful of the Diocese, Bishop Gregory of Nyssa shared, “I was stunned and nearly speechless (and still am) when His Eminence Archbishop Demetrios of the Greek Archdiocese who serves as the Exarch of the Ecumenical Patriarchate here in America called yesterday afternoon. His All-Holiness Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew and the Holy and Sacred Synod have honored all of us; I am truly
greatly humbled.”
