We at Sts. Markella and Demetrios Greek Orthodox Church are as shocked and saddened by the sale of the Chapel of St. John as the members of the extended Maltezos family reported in your story. We want to correct the record and state that no resources were diverted to our church from St. John's, ever.
We were not consulted over the current sale of the property nor will our church receive any proceeds from the reported transaction. Our church is prepared to welcome any of the family or community to worship with us in the Orthodox faith and we would be happy to advise the purchaser regarding the icons and liturgical items remaining in the chapel.
