Press release of the Ecumenical Patriarchate

It has come to the attention of the Ecumenical Patriarchate that a "Greeting Message", ostensibly signed by His All Holiness Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew and the Rev. Protopresbyter Alexander Karloutsos from America, was sent through a mailing list addressing all Greek Orthodox Christians in America. The e-mail, from the sender "Bartholomew Greetings ([email protected])", asked for contributions to support the mission of the Ecumenical Patriarchate.

We categorically state that the Ecumenical Patriarchate, and especially the Ecumenical Patriarch, have no relationship with this counterfeit e-mail, and therefore we flatly denounce this mailing as fraudulent. We ask that any readers of this e-mail take these facts into consideration.
