Is there any doubt that there is discord in the community and questionable leadership by our clergy and parish council?
At the spring general assembly we were told the new Iconostasis at Prophet Elias was approved by the community and the Metropolitan. A member of the community questioned this and stated he would call the Metropolitan personally that very evening. The metropolitan was called that evening at his home at 11:00 p.m. The Metropolitan said he knew nothing about a new Iconostasis or giving approval of one. The Metropolitan celebrated a liturgy at Prophet Elias on the Saturday before Palm Sunday and Vespers on the evening of Palm Sunday.
Whom do we believe? The Parish Council, the Metropolitan or the parishioner who called the Metropolitan personally?
