It has been about a year since His Eminence, Demetrios, the Greek Orthodox Archbishop of the United States of America, said the following:
"The ecclesiastical charter that was issued on April 10, 2010 is to be considered inapplicable and consequently withdrawn. Similarly, the Prophet Elias corporation will be formally dissolved and no separate trade names will be filed with the State of Utah for Holy Trinity and Prophet Elias".
To date there has been been no attempt from the local clergy or any of their appointed Parish Councils to follow the directive from the Holy Synod and the Archbishop with regard to the dissolution of the corporations filed with the State of Utah in the name of Prophet Elias Greek Orthodox Church.
It is further distressing that long-time parishioners, one of whom was named as an archon, should also have set up a similarly illegal entity.
It is well past time for both to be disbanded. The community as a whole has spoken - SEVERAL TIMES, IN FACT - that it does not wish to be divided.
Nor has any general assembly given any of these people authority to set up a corporation describing a separate church entity in this community. Again we say, if you want YOUR OWN CHURCH, GO BUILD ONE! You won't get away with attempting to take one, on behalf of a minority, from the united Greek Orthodox Community of Greater Salt Lake!
