U.S. Orthodox church head takes medical leave

Posted: Friday, June 01, 2001

SYOSSET, N.Y. (AP) -- The Orthodox Church in America, one of the nation's two major Orthodox denominations, said its leader, Metropolitan Theodosius, has been granted a total medical leave for four months.

The announcement said a recent physical exam showed Theodosius, 68, had suffered two minor strokes, then a more serious one. His last duty was attendance at a May summit for all North American Orthodox bishops.

Archbishop Herman of Philadelphia is the church's temporary administrator.
