  It is with deep sorrow and every hope in the Lord's resurrection that His Eminence Archibishop Elpidophoros of America announces the sudden passing of Metropolitan Ilia (Katre) of Philomelion of the Albanian Orthodox Diocese of America.

  MGA Tours remembers Metropolitan Ilia with great love and respect. We were privileged to have him lead us throughout the Holy Land.


 May his memory be eternal.

July 14th, 1937 - October 6, 2022
