BROOKLYN – The parish council of the Holy Cross Greek Orthodox Church in Brooklyn dismissed Michalis Kakias from his position of the Director of the Afternoon Greek School, after seven years of service.
The Council provided no specific reason to him for the dismissal, other than that “a change was needed.” Kakias also teaches Greek in the parish’s Greek Day School and, as of this writing, continues in that capacity.
TNH asked Kakias about why he was dismissed. He replied: “Fr. Gerasimos Makris called and announced it to me. I don’t know the reason; nobody has said anything to me. You have to ask the parish.”
Makris, Holy Cross’ presiding priest, told TNH “it is a matter of the Parish Council. After examination the decision was made that it was time for a change at the school.”
Fr. Makris added that there was “no compelling reason. There is no a scandal or anything like that, just that change is taking place.” He added that Kakias will continue teaching in the Day School for the remainder of the year, and that contracts are renewed every year and, of course, the School Committee oversees that.”
