Members of the Orthodox Church are convening in Pittsburgh this week to elect a new Metropolitan. The meetings are being held in the Hilton hotel and will have members of the church coming from as far away as Alaska, Canada and Mexico. The election process of a Metropolitan is similar to that of the Pope in that there are no formal candidates. Electors write down a name on a ballot, and if no one receives a two-thirds vote, then the top two names go to a final vote.
