Warning: Upsetting material. Hieromonk Joachim (Parr), the founder of Mercy House, has been revealed as a fraudulent “elder” who has only been Orthodox since 1987 in this video. The video above details physical and psychological abuse inflicted on dozens of monastics and hundreds of laypeople in New York.
The report above not only discusses the false history that Fr Joachim has spread around about himself, but is an educational video on false elders. As we take false elders very seriously on NFTU, our purpose in putting this up is basically to make him famous. If only he wasn’t already famous in Russia under totally false pretenses!
Hopefully, this exposé will change the way people see Fr Joachim and his revolving door of spiritual abuse.
