Orthodox Jurisdictions in America

What’s an “Antiochian?” Are there “Pro-ochians” somewhere? Why are there “Georgian” Orthodox parishes over 800 miles from Atlanta? If the Orthodox Church in America used to be the “Russian Orthodox” Church, why are there all of these “Russian Orthodox Church Outside of Russia” churches dotted all around the American countryside? What do all the acronyms mean? ACROD? OCA? GOA? And what is the relationship of all of these people to one another?

If you find these many names and the jurisdictional situation of American Orthodoxy a bit confusing, you’re not alone! Thankfully, help is on the way to assist us in understanding what is going on here. On Thursday, October 12, at 6 pm, Fr. Isaac Daneviscious of St. George Antiochian Orthodox Church in Altoona will deliver a public lecture on the present ecclesiastical situation of Orthodoxy in America. 

This lecture is open to the public and will be streamed live on our YouTube feed, as well as being available for replay in that format.
