Gounaris e-Mail Chastises Cathedral President Poll

By TNH Staff - Theodore Kalmoukos 0 comment

NEW YORK – Rev. Anastasios Gounaris, Presiding Priest of the Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Archdiocesan Cathedral of New York, sent a scathing e-mail to Parish Council President Dean Poll, wishing him “to lose everything and to end up homeless on the streets of New York,” TNH has learned.
Poll is a prominent Greek-American businessman and the owner of the famous Boathouse Restaurant in Central Park. He was appointed President of the Parish Council a few months ago by Archbishop Demetrios.
Gounaris’ email followed Poll’s TNH interview last month, in which he cited problems at the Cathedral, including dwindling attendance for church services, a mounting $250,000 deficit resulting from a $1.9 million annual budget, a large chunk of which is more than $200,000 toward the choir – which includes expenses to hire professional singers, many of which are not Orthodox, nor even Christian.
