On September 6, 2008, Pokrov received an email from Archbishop Michael of the Greek Orthodox Missionary Archdiocese of America. The archbishop reported that Metropolitan Pangratios Vrionis is no longer associated with that group. A visit to the archdiocesan website confirmed that the metropolitan’s picture is no longer prominently displayed on the homepage.

Archbishop Michael wrote in part, “METROPOLITAN PANCRATIOS has dismissal from Holy Synod of Greek Orthodox Missionary Archdioceses of America g.o.c. for the resone of behavior unbecoming a Bishop. PLEASE YOU VERY MUCH to cancel from the web site about Metr. Pancratios every allusion to the Greek Orthodox Missionary Archdiocese of America because we don’t protect this man.”
