Kenneth Bracy is indeed no longer serving, and is not a priest in good standing with any Orthodox jurisdiction that I know of. 

Western American Diocesan Chancellery Of The Russian Orthodox Church Outside of Russia regarding Fr. Kenneth Bracey.

The Priest Kenneth Bracy is drfrocked from all priestly functions by Decree No. 22E/2004 dated 25 May 2005 signed by His Eminence Archbishop Kyrill of San Francisco and Western America and The Holy Synod of Bishops.

Please contact the Chancellery either by e-mail or by phone at (415) 387-8757

Your unworthy servant in Christ,

Because of the news release he cited?  This was reported on various internet sites, including pokrov.org I believe.

Please Buy My Book!

Past posts reflect stages of my life before my baptism may not be accurate expositions of Orthodox teaching. Also, I served as an Orthodox priest from 2008-2013, before resigning.
