Bishop of Sydney, Australia and
His Eminence, Metropolitan Hilarion
On 16 May 2022, following a lengthy illness, His Eminence Metropolitan Hilarion, First Hierarch of the Russian Orthodox Church Outside of Russia, reposed in the Lord.
As the much-loved ruling bishop of the Australian and New Zealand Diocese, His Eminence gave keen support to the establishment and ongoing development of SCMOI.
The Board of SCMOI, of which Vladyka Hilarion was chairman from its inception, together with the faculty, staff and students of the Institute join in expressing our profound thanks to God for his service to the Church and the influence of his wisdom and kindness on countless numbers of people for their salvation.
In the place of Thy rest, O Lord,
where all Thy saints repose,
give rest also to the soul of Thy servant,
for Thou alone art the Lover of Mankind.
