Father Ioannis Maridakis is a priest from Crete.
On September 9, 2013, the chancellor of the Metropolis of San Francisco sent an email to the clergy of the diocese concerning Maridakis. He explained that the clergyman had relatives in the metropolis, and that he had been suspended by his bishop in Crete. The chancellor continued, “Fr. Ioannis is not permitted to serve anywhere in our Metropolis and he should not even be allowed to communicate with our parishes and parishioners. Thank you for attention to this situation for the safety and well-being or our faithful.” A copy of the email is linked above.
