The Accusations
« on: May 13, 2005, 05:08:58 PM »
Fr. Kenneth Bracy has been accused of impregnating a woman parishioner who 
came to him for marriage counseling, leaving Alaska without the knowledge or 
blessing of his bishop, and shipping church property out of the state prior to 
his departure. 

Fr. Kenneth is a married priest and was most recently the pastor of  St.
James the Just Parish in Anchorage AK (ROCOR).  He was suspended from  the
priesthood by His Eminence Archbishop Kyrill of San Francisco and Western  America on
October 29/November 8, 2004 (Decree No. 22E/2004).

Fr. Kenneth attended St. Tikhon Seminary for a year.  He was ordained  to the
diaconate on January 30, 2000, and then to the priesthood on February 5, 
2000, by then Archbishop Herman (now Metropolitan Herman) on behalf of 
Metropolitan Theodosius of The Orthodox Church in America.  He was  assigned to the
TOCA church in Old Harbor AK. He was suspended from  the priesthood on December
27, 2001 and "removed" from the priesthood on April  3, 2003 by TOCA. 
According to an item in the Anchorage  Daily News, Fr. Kenneth was named as the pastor
of St. James the Just on  December 27, 2001.

Some of you may remember that Fr. Kenneth officiated at the funeral  services
of the TOCA bishop, Innocent, after his death on May 6, 2002.   The Anchorage
services were held at St. James the Just.

OK.  Forgive my snide remark in the other thread.

More to the point, if Pokrov whines and noone is around to listen, would anyone still care?  Pokrov makes a lot of accusations, but many are rather unsubstantive.  There are much more important things to worry about than  They are well intentioned, but WAY over zealous and obsessed.

We should pray for Father Kenneth, as we do for all our brothers who have fallen or are accused of having sinned.
Lord have mercy

So, Elisha, what do you worry about ?
