Council Asks OCA Synod to Deny +Herman’s Leave

The Metropolitan Council passed a unanimous resolution yesterday asking the Synod “in the strongest possible terms” to deny Metropolitan Herman’s request for a six month leave of absence “in view of the findings of the Special Investigative Committee’s Report”. The resolution asks instead that the Synod adopt the first recommendation of the SIC Report, that Metropolitan Herman be removed from office immediately.

The Synod is scheduled to meet today separately from the Metropolitan Council where it will discuss the matter as well as the other referrals for discipline. Other items on its agenda include the possible election of Archimandrite Jonah (Paffhausen) as Vicar Bishop for the Diocese of the South.
