As it was reported on the 31st of May 2021, the Holy Synod of the Church of Crete which gathered in Heraklion, unanimously agreed to the proposal of Metropolitan Makarios of Gortynos and Arcadia which he proposed on the Sunday of the Veneration of the Honorable Cross in 2020, which was to submit for official canonization the name of Archimandrite Eumenios Saridakis to the Ecumenical Patriarchate.

It is now being reported in Greek news sources that the canonization of Elder Eumenios will take place by the Ecumenical Patriarchate some time in March.

Elder Eumenios Saridakis (+ 1999) was a holy and charismatic elder and a spiritual child of Saint Nikephoros the Leper, who was canonized by the Ecumenical Patriarchate in 2012.
