Msgr. McPartlan in Constantinople for Episcopal Ordination of Former Student

On Sunday 27 July 2014, Msgr Paul McPartlan attended the episcopal ordination of Metropolitan Maximos (Vgenopoulos) of Silivria by Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew of Constantinople at the Cathedral of St George in the Phanar, Istanbul. Msgr McPartlan was the director of the doctoral dissertation that Metropolitan Maximos wrote some years ago at Heythrop College in the University of London. Metropolitan Maximos' recent book, of great value for Catholic-Orthodox relations, was based on that study: Maximos Vgenopoulos, Primacy in the Church from Vatican I to Vatican II: An Orthodox Perspective (DeKalb, Il: Northern Illinois University Press, 2013).
