We at GOCCL.ORG join with all Orthodox Christians in the prayers of our Holy Church in mourning the passing of Metropolitan Iakovos of Chicago.
“May he find rest the in bosom of Abraham, where all pain, and sorrow and sighing has fled away; and may all of his sins, both voluntary and involuntary be forgiven; and may he have a good defense before the awesome judgement seat of Christ.”
We call on you to contact his Eminence Archbishop Demetrios of America, members of the Holy Eparchial Synod and the Ecumenical Patriarchate and urge them to NOT elevate Bishop Demetrios of Mokissos to the throne of the Metropolis of Chicago.
We hope to make this easy and efficient for you. Below are the email addresses, as well as a template you may use to express your concern for the future of the Metropolis of Chicago. Just copy and paste.
Thank you again for your support.

Concern for the Metropolis of Chicago
Out of concern for the future of the Greek Orthodox Metropolis of Chicago, I urge you to NOT elevate Bishop Demetrios of Mokissos to the throne of the Metropolis of Chicago.
