На Википедији је изашао текст у коме се наводи да су епископи Максим Васиљевић и Иринеј Добријевић прешли под јурисдикцију Васељенског патријарха. Владика Добријевић је упозорен на постојање оваквих информација на Википедиа сајту, али до сада није нашао за сходно да реагује.
Irinej Dobrijević (Serbian Cyrillic: Иринеј Добријевић, English: Irenaeus Dobrijević; United States, Cleveland 6 February 1955) was a Serbian Orthodox Bishop of Metropolitanate of Australia and New Zealand. He was formerly the Bishop of Australia and New Zealand administrator and bishop of the Diocese of Australia and New Zealand Diocesan. Since his return to the United States as head of the Serbian Orthodox Eparchy of Eastern American, he and two other Serbian bishops (Maksim Vasiljević and Longin Krčo) have incorporated the three dioceses under the ambiguous name of “Serbian Orthodox Dioceses in the United States of America”, and placed themselves under the jurisdiction of the Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew while at the same time (in mid-July 2019), ironically enough, also celebrated the 800 anniversary of Serbian Orthodox Church‘s autocephaly from the Ecumenical Patriarchate in Istanbul, Turkey. From the early days of the formation of the Serbian Unity Congress,the Office of External Affairs of the Serbian Orthodox Church (both located in the same office and building)and the Wikileaks have revealed that Irinej Dobrijević is a controversial figure when dealing with his own flock, the Serbian religious community.
An Internet-generated petition, now being signed by Serbian Orthodox faithful and their parish priests, is attempting to reverse the illegal act committed by the three so-called presidents (Irinej Dobrijević, Longin Krčo, and Maksim Vasiljević) of the new corporation and their legal team (attorneys Leon Lysalght, Nada Sizemore, Ljubiša Miličić and Luka Erceg).
He was raised and educated in his native Cleveland, where he finished 12th-grade general education. He graduated from the two most prestigious Orthodox theological colleges in the United States—St. Tikhon and St. Vladimir. From the latter, he received his master’s degree for his thesis on the life of St. Nikolaj Velimirović. He is a professor at the famous Loyola University in Chicago. At the invitation of Serbian Patriarch Pavle Irinej taught at the Theological Faculty in Belgrade.
He belongs to the monastic brotherhood of the monastery of St. Sava in Libertyville, Illinois. He had a prominent role as executive director of the so-called Office for Foreign Affairs of the Serbian Orthodox Church in Washington, D.C., sponsored by the U.S. government and later renamed the Serbian Unity Congress.
For several years he was also an editor of the magazine “Cross Orthodoxy”, the official SPC publication in the U.S. He has participated in many conferences organized by the Serbian community in the diaspora.
