Father Vasile Susan Appeals One Final Time to the OCA Synod of Bishops
Pokrov.org recently received another letter from Father Vasile Susan for posting. The complete text of that letter is linked above.
Susan was terminated from his position at Saint Mary’s Romanian Orthodox Church in Chicago, Illinois, in 2004. Archbishop Nathaniel Popp also had the priest removed from the Romanian Episcopate of the Orthodox Church in America (OCA) and transferred to the omophorion of the metropolitan. Susan was never given a reason for Popp’s actions, although he believed it was because he spoke out about a clergyman who was an active homosexual. Although Susan remains a priest in good standing, he has been without church employment for more than 6 years.
In his latest posting Susan asks the OCA’s synod of bishops to include his case on the agenda of their fall session, October 19
