Archbishop Ieronymos calls for new form of administration


The head of the Church of Greece, Archbishop Ieronymos, yesterday proposed a restructuring of the institution in his opening speech to the Holy Synod. Ieronymos said forces who wanted to “dechristianize Greek society and alienate it from its true traditions” were “no longer far away, they are within our walls.” Speaking after reports suggested that some 1.2 million euros collected from worshippers had been used to pay Church expenses rather than go to good causes, the archbishop said that “we have to re-examine the way we organize and administrate our affairs.” Ieronymos proposed that the Church hierarchy meet twice a year, not once.
