McFeeters Letters

Archpriest Justin McFeeters, a priest in the Antiochian Orthodox Christian Archdiocese of North America, was accused of inappropriate conduct toward a parishioner at Holy Ascension Church in Norman, Oklahoma. He was suspended from his priestly duties on October 21, 2015, pending an investigation into the written complaint. The allegations were found to be credible and McFeeters, who voluntarily waived his right to a spiritual court, was removed from the priesthood on October 23, 2015.

Copies of the letters informing the priest of his suspension and deposition are linked above.
