  1. Wow…and he’s to restore unity to the Arlington church?

    “TNH was told from sources within the Brockton parish that this was not the first time that Evangelatos had behaved in unbecoming way. The membership of the parish, sources said, has declined to low numbers while a few years ago a massive exodus of six members of the parish council took place because of Evangelatos.”
