Letter to the Editor: Don’t Place All of the Blame on Demetrios

March 26, 2018

In Chicago, after waiting for decades for a house cleaning, we will be patient with Metropolitan Nathanael to learn the ropes.

In the Archdiocese as a whole, I completely agree with Theodore Kalmoukos about the need to audit all metropolises. Bravo to the Metropolis of Pittsburgh for releasing information- the rest must follow. He is also right that the lay leaders bear much responsibility. Everyone knew administration was not Archbishop Demetrios’ strength. How long did the Archdiocesan Council need to see they needed to take bolder action when he was unwilling to cut staff? A few years, fine, but 18 years?

After all, he is a pastor, not a CEO.
