The Greek Orthodox Archdiocese and the Metropolis of San Francisco take all allegations of sexual misconduct very seriously and we grieve for all those affected in such cases.

Upon learning of the allegation of an incident at St. Nicholas Ranch in 2002, an investigation took place. We have not been able to confirm the information furnished regarding this allegation. The investigation will continue should new information become available. Anyone with information on this situation or any matters related to sexual misconduct is urged to contact us at: (212) 774-0332.

For a number of years, all St. Nicholas Ranch camp staff have been required to pass background checks and undergo misconduct training in compliance with the Youth Protection Manual for Archdiocesan and Metropolis camps and retreats. The safety of our children attending our camps is of the utmost importance and we work and pray, constantly, for their protection.
