Greek Orthodox church gets new leader in U.S.

NEW YORK- Archbishop Spyridon was enthroned Saturday as the first U.S.-born head of the Greek Orthodox church in America, promising to build a Christian ministry relevant to life in a multiethnic country. "We must love those who are different," he told a congregation of more than 1,000 at the Archdiocesan Cathedral of the Holy Trinity. Archbishop Spyridon, 51, succeeds Archbishop Iakovos, 85, who retired in July.
