The spiritual court trying Fr. Robert S. Kondratick the former OCA Chancellor has returned its verdict. (The announcement of the verdict was briefly delayed probably out of consideration for the recent repose of Fr. Kondratick's mother.) It was the court's recommended that he be deposed from the priesthood for his misconduct while serving as chancellor, which he continues to deny. This recommendation was confirmed by the Holy Synod and took effect on July 31 2007. While this is an important step in the process of putting the OCA's house in order, it is also a very sad and even tragic moment as well. Although I have on this page been a critic of Fr. Bob's I would ask for prayers for him as he deals with this new challenge in life.
