The Last Deception is worse than the First

We have been forced to display the publications of the Neos Kosmos Newspaper regarding the sad choices of the “Greek Orthodox Community of South Australia” (GOCSA) to bring here to Australia a “new ecclesiastical authority”. According to the Neos Kosmos “the Archbishop” was a celibate cleric (Archimandrite) who upon deciding to get married was defrocked by the Ecumenical Patriarchate. After his defrockment he decided to move to Sao Paulo, Brazil, become an “Archbishop” and to be named “President of the Synod of the Diaspora” of an Old Calendarist faction.  

Who is this “bishop” recognised by? NO ONE

Neither the Greek Nation nor the numerous sects of the Old Calendarists recognise him. We hope that after these publications that none of their ilk dare to come here and present themselves as clergy. As married “bishops” they do not have the right to insult the Greek Orthodox Christians of Australia nor the traditions of our Church.

All faithful have a duty to be notified about this onslaught of irreverence presenting itself by this new manifestation of defrocked clergy. All faithful also need to be made aware of those who are responsible for inviting them to Australia.
