The Trial

Dear visitors,

LETTER TO THE MEDIA, OCT. 21, 2014

RE: Storheim Case to Manitoba Court of Appeal Oct. 31

I am a retired economist with some experience in legal advocacy; my wife is a retired law librarian.

The verdict in the case of Archbishop Seraphim (Storheim) raised more questions than it answered, so we invested money and considerable time in analyzing the trial transcripts.

Our basic questions were:
(1) Had a crime occurred?
(2) Was he guilty of that crime?
(3) Did he receive a fair trial?

This Worthy Man

Here is a random slideshow of His Eminence Archbishop Seraphim for many years of His Service and Love to people.

Second Canonical Petition by the Hesychastic Society of the Most Holy Mary

In a confidential form, thru Protodeacon Matusiak, the Hesychastic Society sent a Second Canonical Petition to His Beatitude Metropolitan Tikhon and the Lesser Synod on 2/21/2014. For clarity sake and removing theological language that does not convey its meanings as well in English in a public arena unfamiliar with theologisms, it has been slightly re-written and abridged, 3/ 15/2014 for public presentation, a restatement of urgency, and transparency:

Your Beatitude, Metropolitan Tikhon and the Lesser Synod:

Rod Tkachuk

Edmonton, AB

I have known Bishop Seraphim for thirty years, through St. Herman’s in Edmonton, the archdiocesan council and through many church matters.

A couple of decades ago, at the archdiocesan council, with the Bishop, we were having a little “workshop” about administrative and organizational efficiencies.
Bishop Seraphim said, in a calm and frank way, “I don’t know how to be a Bishop, but it seems to me that a Bishop should be a father and that is what I try to be”.

Julia Pozina

Annunciation Orthodox Cathedral in Ottawa, ON

Your Beatitude, Metropolitan Tikhon,

I would like to write you a letter to express the concern our family has towards the possibility to take some actions against Archbishop Seraphim. We do understand how complicated the situation and how much pressure you have from outside the world of Christianity. But PLEASE do not decide anything yet, just wait until an appeal to the courts.
