The metropolitan Ilarion Ohiienko (1882–1972) was prominent Ukrainian Orthodox cleric, linguist, church historian, and cultural figure. In May 1937 the wife of Prof. Ivan Ohiienko died. And soon, in 1940, upon the recommendation of the Ukrainian Church Rada, the Council of the Orthodox Church in the Generalgouvernement, headed by metropolitan Dionisii Valedynskyi, elected Prof. I. Ohienko as Bishop of Kholm and Pidliashia. The Metropolitan of Warsaw Dionisii tonsured Ivan Ohiienko as a monk at St. Onuphrius monastery in Jableczna on October 9, 1940, giving him the name of Ilarion. The next day, Metropolitan Dionisii ordained him a deacon, and on October 11 his ordination as hieromonk took place, as well as his promotion to the rank of archimandrite. The episcopal nomination of archimandrite Ilarion took place in the Kholm Cathedral on October 19, 1940 and his episcopal ordination took place the next day, presided by Metropolitan Dionisii of Warsaw. Ohiienko began to Ukrainianize the Orthodoxy in the Kholm region, by introducing Ukrainian practices in the church rite and the use of Ukrainian in services and ordaining several Ukrainian priests. In August 1951 he was elected metropolitan of Winnipeg and head of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church of Canada.
