+Philip Says Audit is All or None

October 13, 2009

An OCANews.org article today reports Metropolitan Phillip of the Antiochian Orthodox Church “requires that if the Archdiocese is to be audited, all 350+ parishes in the Archdiocese must be individually audited as well. The Metropolitan offered no explanation for this extraordinary assertion, which does not reflect standard practice in either the commercial or non-profit worlds.”

The article further reports: “In the same letter, dated September 30th but published in the parish bulletin last Sunday, the Metropolitan rejected the idea of an audit of  the Troy parish’s finance as well. Amid allegations that the priest, Fr. Joseph Antypas, signed numerous checks bearing the signature of a long-dead parish treasurer, the Metropolitan expressed his ‘full confidence in the leadership of Fr. Joseph” stating that“it is conclusive no financial improprieties have taken place’.”
