When she was three years old, her family moved to the Chicago suburb of Park Ridge. She graduated in in the top five percent of her class.
His activities have not stopped there however. This was done without the knowledge or consent of either Metropolitan Jonah or Bishop Nikolai. This presents several questions about the authority of Jillions to share such personal information without consent, not to mention if those files are in fact keeping with generally accepted Human Resource practices as what should and should not be in personnel files.
But what was not reported by the OCA was the real purpose of his visit. Soraich attended seminary at Johnstown. In Fr Vladimir was suspended by Bishop Michael after a complaint of clergy misconduct.
Last summer, Bishop Michael, escorted by a police officer, went to Holy Trinity to inform the parish that Fr Vladimir was suspended and removed as pastor from the parish. Bishop Michael and the officer were not greeted warmly by the faithful and needed to exist the church by a back door to avoid angry parishioners.
The case against Fr Alexeev was presented by, you guessed it, Fr Jillions. After making his presentation to the Court, clergy representing Fr Alexeev presented their defense of Fr Alexeev.
The ruling of the Diocesan Spiritual Court was that the case presented by the prosecution Jillions was without merit and they ruled in favor of Alexeev. The question is why?
Was he trying to find something that about Bishop Michael that can be used as leverage against him? Could such information make it easier for Jillions to continue to pursue his case against Alexeev with Bishop Michael silenced? Once a Diocesan Spiritual Court adjudicates a case the only person who can block the appeal of a case to the Holy Synod is the diocesan bishop —in this case, Bishop Michael.
Since Fr Vladimir was reinstated, it would appear that Michael is not in favor of an appeal of the case. This is a curious game for Syosset to play, after all, Bishop Michael accepted the verdict of the Spiritual Court, and any further intereference would diminish the diocesan form of ecclesial governance.
Even if some in the national chancery are upset with the verdict, the fact remains that due process worked. All things being equal, the bishop would have the advantage and responsibility for what goes on in his diocese.
To continue to pursue a closed case means —at the very least—that the Chancellor does not accept hierarchical authority —t say nothing of due process. Did he get the approval of Bishop Nikolai and Bishop Matthias or Metropolitan Jonah to look into and let others see those files?
One would hope so! Or will these bishops find out about all this by reading it here? Is Bishop Michael seen as some sort of threat to the Syosset status quo since he was the popular choice of the clergy and faithful delegates to the Parma Council?
We do know that Fr Jillions has been on a clergy misconduct crusade; some would call it an unnatural obsession. We do know that he has looked into dozens of cases that were already adjudicated and sealed. Now he invades private files of OCA bishops.
In order to keep them quiet and in line? What right does he have to do this? Why is his position superior to that of a diocesan bishop and a diocesan spiritual court made up of clergy who he has no authority over?Moya K.
