Currently, his status is "defrocked" and he does not have the title "Presbyter" among other priests on the Orthodox Metropolitanate of Hong Kong and Southeast Asia website (http://www.omhksea.org/42.html).

- True, but he was never canonically released. So, it depends on one's standpoint. From the perspective of OMHKSEA (from which he derived his holy orders), as per their website he is currently defrocked. We have seem this before at times, as with former Bp. Basil Osborne for a time (before the MP canonically released him); and also in California, with some of the individuals who left the AOC for the then Church of Jerusalem parishes. Will update last section of article to show his current status in OMHKSEA. Cheers, Angellight 888 21:09, September 13, 2010 (UTC)
