Archbishop Makarios of Australia, has appointed Bishop Iakovos of Miletoupolis to be the first ever resident Greek Orthodox Bishop in Queensland.
This is a historic milestone in the life of Greek Orthodox Church in Queensland. Bishop Iakovos is the first Australian born Bishop, a graduate of the Theological College of St Andrew, and a person with intimate knowledge about the Church in Queensland.
Bishop Iakovos is a pastorally sensitive man who will enrich the personal and communal spiritual life of the Church.
Queensland’s community will welcome him from November 1 2019 with open arms and fervent prayer for his ministry.
