San Francisco


The Very Reverend Fr. Archpriest,


I am bothering you again. I have not received the answer to my inquiry on how to understand an expression in the reply to the parish council regarding the transfer of the property ("in your particular case to the Parish Committee"). What shall I do? The Serbs don’t agree that the property should also be deeded to the Vladyka, but rather exclusively to the parish, while the hierarch remains the head in a spiritual sense only. The situation is v. serious. They haven’t paid the bank %% for 9 months; the bank threatens with an auction, while the Serbs have collected $10,000.00 and are waiting for the Vladyka’s answer.

Advise me what to do.

With respect,


Your servant priest V. Sakovich
