This article states " ordained to the diaconate by His Eminence, Metropolitan Ireney (Bekish), on July 7, 1950, ". This is not true. The article on Metropolitan Ireney (Bekish) states he was consecrated: "After being elected Bishop of Tokyo, then a diocese in the Metropolia, Fr. John was tonsured a monk on May 28, 1953, and given the name of Ireney. He was also raised to the rank of archimandrite. His consecration as Bishop of Tokyo was conducted by Metropolitan Leonty (Turkevich) on June 7, 1953, " I don't know who ordained Father Warnecke, so I can't correct this. Perhaps some one knows and can correct the entry. Wsk 20:06, June 14, 2009 (UTC)
