21 February 2012. Is Gregory Wendt (of the S Florida Murder Case Infamy) Leaving the USA?


I received the following from one of my kitchen cabinet members:

The [UOC/MP] Synod blessed the opening in the city of Zhdanovka in the Donetsk Oblast of the Holy Dormition Skete of the women’s Kasperovsk Monastery, and in the Vorocheva village in the Transcarpathian region of the Holy Protection Monastery (appointing as its head Archimandrite Gregory Wendt), and appointed Archimandrite Simeon (Gagatik) as the head of Holy Trinity Monastery in Akhtyrsk in the Sumy Diocese.

For the full scoop on Wendt, click here. He was neck-deep in a murder scandal at his monastery in south Florida about a decade ago. Did I mention that Mr Wendt’s a cleric of the fast-imploding OCA?

There’s no more information than the above, so, there’s no grounds to assume that he’s fleeing the jurisdiction. It’s “interesting”…
