Ecclesiastical Election

Divinity School graduate James Coucouzes S.T.M. '45, was elected Archbishop of the Americas by the Holy Synod of the Greek Orthodox Church, Saturday, in Istanbul.

Archbishop James, who had been serving as the ecumenical representative to the World Council of Churches, is a close friend of Douglas Horton, Dean of the Faculty of Divinity, who commented that "churches in Christendom can be happy with the election. The Archbishop is a very fine person."
