His long and direct contacts with Roman Catholic officials in Italy led to his appointment in 1984 as Executive Secretary of the Inter-Orthodox Commission for the Theological Dialogue between the Orthodox and the Roman Catholic Churches.
In 1985 the Holy and Sacred Synod of the Ecumenical Patriarchate elected him [[bishop|titular bishop]] of Apamea, assigning him as an [[auxiliary bishop]] to the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of Austria and Exarchate of Italy, as it was then known.
In November 1991, upon creating the Holy Archdiocese of Italy and Exarchate of Southern Europe, the Holy and Sacred Synod of the Ecumenical Patriarchate elected Spyridon as the first Metropolitan for this newly created Archdiocesan [[See]].
