Suspension of a priest in Philippines

Hong Kong, December 19, 2020

To All the Clergy and the Laity

of the Orthodox Metropolitanate of Hong Kong and South East Asia

Dear Fathers, Brothers and Sisters,

With great sadness I inform you that as of today

Archimandrite Philemon Castro

has been suspended indefinitely

and he does not have the right to celebrate the Divine Liturgy

and the other Sacraments of the Orthodox Church.

May our God show mercy to him.
