According to the the Holy Synod Met Jonah is “‘His Eminence, Metropolitan Jonah, former Archbishop of Washington and Metropolitan of All-America and Canada.”
Since 99.9% of what was said or sung at the Dormition Liturgy was in Russian or Church Slavonic, neither of which do I know more than a very few words, I can only comment on what I saw. You can see in the photos that are now posted in various slideshows that at various times Met Jonah, Met Hilarion (Kapral)(ROCOR) were on the left and the right of Met Hilarion of Volokolamsk (MP) elevated on the kafedra, later Met Jonah, Met Hilarion (Kapral) (ROCOR) were alone together on the kafedra, with the other bishops and archemendrites on the main level of the cathedral floor lined up as they do in a hierarchical Liturgy. Because I was standing to the left and behind the kafedra I was unsure who exactly was up there.
At the close of the Liturgy Met Hilarion of Volokolamsk (MP) addressed the assembly for some time. On either side of him there at the iconostasis were Mets Jonah and Hilarion (Kapral). That was when it was clear to us who it was. And he was addressed as Met Jonah OCA. I don’t recall anything more about exactly how it was translated as I was at that moment kind of in shock.
There was a DL on Sunday at St. Nicholas Cathedral (Russian) SF which a number of the group from Ft Ross Liturgy were to concelebrate. Met Jonah was not at Ft Ross but I read on line somewhere that he was a concelebrant at the St Nicholas DL the next day.
I don’t know that that answers your question. To me it was a real surprise seeing Met Jonah there. I don’t know what to make of it. Damage control? The Holy Synod surely have heard to amount of upset amongst the faithful with the entire Met Jonah “resignation” situation. May good come from this.
