His All Holiness BArtHolomewArchbishop of Constantinople, New Rome and Ecumenical Patriarch


MessaGe of tHe eCUMeniCal PatRiaRCH

Your Eminence, Archbishop Demetrios of America, most honorable Exarch of the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans, beloved brother in the Holy Spirit and co-celebrant of our Modesty: Grace be with Your Eminence and peace from God. Two thousand and eleven years have passed since the time when the Son and Logos of God, the second person of the most holy and life-giving Trinity became human according to the ages-old plan of divine dispensation. The One without beginning, begotten of the Father, was born in time by a mother. The Son of God and God Himself became Son of man and human, born of woman, born under the law, to redeem those who were under the law (Galatians 4:4-5). Through all these years, however, and although man partakes of the manifold love and the infinite mercy of God that is manifested in all things, he obstinately refuses to move from the mentality of law to grace, from punishment to blessing, from conflict to harmony, from hatred to love. Jesus Christ by way of His Incarnation came to connect the separated and to obliterate the enmity felt until then by man toward God. Since then He invites and largely challenges man to partake of this love. May the two thousandth and eleventh year of salvation become a milestone with respect to human behavior and may man respond to Gods invitation of love and reconciliation. Thus, from the depths of our heart and from the sacred Center of Orthodoxy we congratulate and bless the publication of the Yearbook of your Holy Archdiocese. With patriarchal affection we invoke upon you and the entire Holy Archdiocese of America the abundant blessing and the infinite mercy of God during this new year of grace, so that moving forward from glory to glory and from success to success under your inspired leadership, the Archdiocese may be rendered, hitherto, an occasion of joy and glory in the Lord for the Holy and Great Church of Christ, to which she canonically belongs and the oil of relief for the wounds of her body.

Beloved Brothers and Sisters in Christ, my wishes and prayers for the strength, wisdom, and grace of God in all that you do. The addition of one more year in our life is an opportunity to reflect on it in a spirit of thankfulness and creativity. For some, it is a time of planning, of renewing commitAt the beginning of this year 2011, a new year of the love of God, I extend to you

For us as Christians and as the Greek Orthodox Church in America, it is a time to build on the great and mighty things that God has accomplished through our ministry of faith and generosity in 2010. Over the past decade of this new millennium we have, by the grace of God,

labored in his vineyard through the establishment of new ministries and the expan-

sion of existing ones. We have constructed new and beautiful edifices of worship, as well as facilities for education, fellowship, and special ministries. We have witnessed the philanthropic spirit of many through their generous donations in all areas of work truly thankful. throughout the Church in America. For this progress and growth, we are deeply and We are also thankful and give glory to God for deeming us worthy of the offering

of faith and love to so many for the ministry of healing and compassion to those in

need, for the strengthening of life and relationships in homes and parishes, and for the most sacred work of salvation of souls. this is the work that we must continue in the new year. Our witness and legacy of faith as the children of God is not what we do in a moment, but what we offer for a lifetime. It is our faithfulness to God year after will accomplish through us in the days and months ahead.

SECTION H: PATRIARCHAL MONASTERIES1) The Monastic Commonwealth of the Holy Mountain The Peninsula of Athos, from the Great Guard and beyond, is called the Holy Mountain, which is a self-regulating region in the Greek State, whose sovereignty, nevertheless, remains intact. From a spiritual perspective, the Holy Mountains falls under the direct jurisdiction of the Ecumenical Patriarchate. Its area comprises of 389 sq. kms. Monasticism has been present on the Holy Mountain since the 5th century in the form of eremetical ascetics, or small groupings in remote places of the Mountain, as well as a parallel secular presence which persisted until the 8th century. In the first decades of the 9th century Hagiorite Monasticism entered a new phase, which is well attested to in the historical sources. The Mountain took on its own peculiar monastic character, acquiring boundaries and an organized administration with its seat at Karyes, where the Lavra, called the Great Middle, was active around the year 940 A.D. Here the First (Protos) of the Holy Mountain was situated, and his foundation was called the Protaton. In the 9th century, two important personalities inhabited the Holy Mountain: St. Peter the Athonite, who had come to Athos at the end of the 8th century, and St. Efthymios

eCUMeniCal PatRiaRCHate diReCtoRy ECUMENICAL PATRIARCHATE DIRECTORYthe New, who founded a Lavra on the Holy Mountain around 860 A.D. In 963 A.D. monastic life took on a new shape with the founding, by St. Athanasios, of the first Great Coenobium the Sacred Monastery of the Great Lavra. The financial and moral support for this undertaking came from that preeminent Emperor of Byzantium, Nikephoros Phocas, the friend and spiritual son of St. Athanasios. The official organization of monastic life on the Holy Mountain began with the issuance of the Typikon of the Byzantine Emperor John Tsimiskis, known by the name, Tragos. After the establishment of the Great Lavra, the remainder of the great monasteries were founded over the years, with the assistance and blessing of the ever-memorable Byzantine Emperors and Ecumenical Patriarchs, by saintly men and remain until today, as the Imperial Chrysobulls and Patriarchal Compacts witness. Throughout the centuries, the Byzantine State and the Ecumenical Patriarchate, in accordance with their efforts to transmit Christianity to the peoples bordering the Empire, permitted monks of different nationalities to dwell on the Holy Mountain (especially there were Iberians, Slavs and Rumanians) so that they might transmit in turn a deeper understanding of the substance of Orthodoxy, and transplant the Athonite way of life to their people. This explains the fact that until this very day, there are non-Greek-speaking monasteries which continue to be nourished by the centuries-old Athonite monastic tradition. a) Civil Administrative Authorities of the Holy Mountain Civil Administrator: Aristides Kasmiroglou.

The Rev. Robert G. Stephanopoulos, Ph.D.THE ORTHODOX CHURCHthe Orthodox Church today, numbering over 250 million worldwide, is a communion of self governing Churches, each administratively independent of the other, but united by a common faith and spirituality. their underlying unity is based on identity of doctrines, sacramental life and worship, which distinguishes Orthodox Christianity. All Orthodox Churches are in communion with the Ecumenical Patriarch of Constantinople who is acknowledged as primus inter pares, first among equals. All are in full communion with one another. the living tradition of the Church and the principles of love, concord and harmony are expressed through the common mind of the universal episcopate as the occasion arises. In all other matters, the internal life of each independent Church is administered by the hierarchs of that particular Church. Following the ancient principle of the one people of God in each place and the universal priesthood of all believers, the laity shares equally in the responsibility for the preservation and propagation of the Christian faith and Church. ticipation in the sacramental life of the Church. Holy Eucharist/Communion: the holy Eucharist, known as the Divine liturgy, is the chief worship service and is celebrated on all Sundays and holy days during the liturgical year. Orthodoxy maintains a high sacramental view. the Sacraments are visible signs of an invisible Divine Grace. the elements of bread and wine in the holy Eucharist are the very Body and Blood of Jesus Christ received for the remission of sins and life everlasting, after proper spiritual preparation and fasting. Holy Unction: holy Unction, the Sacrament of the sick, is an anointing with oil and prayers for those who need healing of body and soul and spiritual support. however, it is not exclusively a last rite. Confession: Confession or the Sacrament of Penance is necessary to the spiritual development, forgiveness and growth of a believer. this is usually conducted privately, in the presence and under the direction of a spiritual father and confessor. Marriage: Christian marriage is the Sacrament of union of a man and woman for mutual complementarity and propagation of the race. the crowning is a sign of witnessing to Christ and his love for the Church. It must be performed by an Orthodox priest on behalf of the community of faith. Holy Orders: holy Orders or Priesthood is a special ministry of service in and for the Church. the three major orders of clergy are deacon, presbyter and bishop. Bishops are consecrated by at least three other Bishops. Orthodox priests are often married men. Bishops are chosen from among the monastic clergy who have taken the vow of celibacy. the clergy are entrusted with maintaining the unity of the Church teaching and the sacraments. Many other rites and blessings are expressions of the one sacramental ministry of the Church. All of these may be seen as gracious and spiritually fruitful actions for the welfare of the faithful. there are services for the dead, based on the

The Sacrament: The Mystical Life of OrthodoxyAn Orthodox Christian, of whatever national origin, may go to any Orthodox Church and receive the sacraments: Baptism, Chrismation, holy Communion, Confession, Unction, Matrimony and holy Orders. Our practice is to baptize infants as full members of the Church, based on a close-knit Christian family and the importance of a sponsor or Godparent in Christian upbringing. Christian nurture is placed properly in the home and in the teaching office of the Church. Baptism: Water Baptism of adults and infants is celebrated by three-fold immersion in the Name of the trinity. It is an initiation into the Church, forgiveness of sins and the beginning of the Christian life. the Sacrament of Chrismation (Confirmation), in conformity with the ancient practice, is performed immediately after baptism as a seal of the gifts of the holy Spirit given to the new Christian. holy Communion is received after baptism, emphasizing the fullness of par66

The Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of AmericaBefore the establishment of an Archdiocese there were numerous communities of Greek Orthodox Christians. The first Greek Orthodox community in the Americas was founded in New Orleans, lA by a small colony of Greek merchants. history also records that on June 26,1768 the first Greek colonists landed at St. Augustine, Fl, the oldest city in America. The first permanent community was founded in New york City in 1892, todays Archdiocesan Cathedral of the holy trinity. the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of North and South America was incorporated in 1921 and officially recognized by the State of New york in 1922. the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America is under the jurisdiction of the Ecumenical Patriarchate of Constantinople and is composed of an Archdiocesan District New york and eight Metropolises: New Jersey, Chicago, Atlanta, Detroit, San Francisco, Pittsburgh, Boston and Denver. It is governed by the Archbishop and the Eparchial Synod. the Synod is headed by the Archbishop and comprised of the Metropolitans who oversee their own Metropolises. the Synod

CLERGY-LAITY CONGRESSthe Clergy-laity Congress, the highest legislative body of the Archdiocese, is convened biennially and presided over by the Archbishop. It is concerned with all matters, other than doctrinal or canonical, affecting the life, growth and unity of the Church, the institutions, finances, administration, educational and philanthropic concerns. the delegates to the Congress are pastors and elected lay representatives.

THE ARCHDIOCESAN COUNCILthe Archdiocesan Council is the deliberative body of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese, which meets in the interim period between Clergy-laity Congresses.

The first retreat of this ministry was held October 30, 2010, at the Saint Iakovos Retreat Center near Kenosha, Wisconsin. Entitled The Liturgy Through Your Senses, the day-long retreat was attended by 40 persons and was coordinated by Ms. Toni Poteres with support from His Grace Bishop Demetrios of Mokissos, Chancellor of the Metropolis, and Mr. Chris Avramopoulos, Metropolis Director of Youth and Young Adult Ministries along with numerous clergy and lay volunteers. The Metropolis of Chicago Philoptochos Board helped underwrite expenses together with other donors, including the Novak Family Foundation. The retreat program was designed around the Sunday Divine Liturgy and its appeal to the senses: sight, sound, touch, taste, and scent. Sensory stimulation is an important factor in educating children with special needs. Likewise, the Retreat Center grounds and facilities provided a new and exciting environment. Pick Up Your Cross and Follow Me is a ministry program in development. Input from concerned persons or volunteers is most welcome, and for more information please contact the Metropolis of Chicago Office of Youth and Young Adult Ministry at (312) 337-4130.

The Folk Dance Festival is an opportunity for dance groups to expand their repertoire by learning Greek dances from various regions and to meet other dancers who want to learn more about their Greek heritage. Since its inception, the Festival has been non-competitive in nature. This years festival was hosted by the Grecian Odyssey Dancers from the Presentation of Christ/Ypapanti Church in East Pittsburgh, PA.

Summer Camp and Retreats continue to be our most important means of bringing Christ to our youth.

I commend those Parishes, Philoptochos Chapters and individuals that generously contribute to disaster relief efforts and support programs which benefit soup kitchens and shelters throughout New England. I am particularly thankful to our Catechetical and Greek School children as well as our GOYAns and Young Adults for being especially cognizant of and responsive to needy brethren in our cities and towns. Emulating their sterling example, and in conjunction with the Clergy-Laity Congress theme, Gather my People to my Home, Come and See, I urge all Parishes in the Metropolis of Boston to dedicate this ecclesiastical year to reach out and minister to brethren in the community at large who are suffering, especially the hungry and homeless.----From Metropolitan Methodios Encyclical for the 2011 Ecclesiastical Year.(below) Some walkers for Bostons Walk for Hunger chose to begin the day at a 6:00 a.m. Divine Liturgy at the Metropolis Center prior to joining hundreds of Metropolis of Boston faithful from throughout New England who participated in the Walk.

MetRoPolis of denveRThe Metropolis of Denver as a whole has experienced healthy spiritual growth which is ultimately accomplished on an individual and personal level as each person draws nearer to Christ through spiritual struggle. Individual growth can be gauged through the activities in which each person participates and which form the life of the Metropolis.

Youth Summer CampCamp Emmanuel is convened each Summer to bring together youth from throughout the Metropolis. The seeds of our Orthodox faith, planted by parents and parish priests, are cultivated during the camp session as strong Christian friendships and relationships are established and nurtured among the youth.

Icon of the Panagia, Rescuer of the PerishingThe Metropolis has been blessed with the receipt of a large eighteenth-century icon of the Mother of God, which has been placed in the Chapel at the Metropolis Center. Oil continues to flow from the arm of the Panagia and from the legs of Christ, and is especially abundant during the seasons of the Feasts of the Lord and His Holy Mother. Many people of all Orthodox jurisdictions and backgrounds attend the weekly Paraklesis Service to the Mother of God, and those in need receive anointing with the oil that comes from it.

Annual Basketball TournamentThe annual youth basketball tournament has proven successful for both Christian fellowship and sportsmanship. This annual event brings together over one thousand individuals, including youth athletes as well as their parents and chaperones.

Oratorical FestivalThe Oratorical Festival for our young people, sponsored by our Archdiocese, brings together participants from the parishes throughout this region. The number of participants and the spiritually insightful presentations are an inspiration to all of those attending.

MonasticismLong regarded as the bulwark of our Orthodox faith, a strong monastic presence is maintained in the Metropolis by two monasteries. The monastery of the Holy Archangels in Kendalia, Texas, remains the second largest male monastic community in the Archdiocese. The monastery of Saint Paraskeve completed its new Katholikon, and remains a strong community for women monastics.

Parochial SchoolsParochial schools at the three largest parishes Annunciation Orthodox School in Houston, Saint Sophia School in Salt Lake City, and Holy Trinity Academy in Dallas enjoy steady enrollment and continue to produce young scholars who are academically and spiritually prepared for their secondary education studies.

Inter-Orthodox CooperationHierarchs from the adjacent Orthodox dioceses in other jurisdictions have visited the Metropolis Center, and held fruitful discussions concerning inter-Orthodox activities. The Center has also hosted the national board meetings for IOCC, OCMC, OCPM, OCF, and the Archdiocese Presbyters Council.

Advocates 1000The Advocates 1000 program helps sustain operations and programs of the Metropolis office. The increasing number of individual and parish participants indicates the growing support for the ongoing ministries of the Metropolis in all areas.

Choir FederationThe Metropolis Choir Federation holds an annual conference to encourage and develop Byzantine hymnology in the parishes as well as the ongoing polyphonic choirs. The conference features workshops for chanters learning Byzantine chant.

MetRoPolis of san fRanCisCoMETROPOLIS OFFERS DIVERSE PROGRAMS, MINISTRIES FOR FAITHFUL THROUGHOUT WESTFor we are Gods fellow workers; you are Gods field, you are Gods building. I Corinthians 3:9Saint Paul challenges us all with these words, recognizing that we are the Church, and each of us has a role in proclaiming the Gospel of Jesus Christ, emulating Him in all that we do. Building Up the House of God is a commitment made by the Greek Orthodox Metropolis of San Francisco to place special emphasis on developing and sustaining innovative programs and ministries aimed to provide spiritual nourishment and emotional support for the thousands of faithful we serve. His Eminence Metropolitan Gerasimos has initiated a five-year program that focuses on building up our communities, with a specific theme each year. The first year will be dedicated to developing ministries for the Family. In year two, the theme will be Worship. The third year will focus on Fellowship. The fourth year will be devoted to Service; and the fifth year will center on Witness. These five themes have been selected because they form the core of the life of the Church. During the 2010 2011 Ecclesiastical Year, His Eminence Metropolitan Gerasimos challenges the faithful of the Metropolis to commit themselves more fully to our Family the Holy Orthodox Church. If we are emboldened to take this spiritual step, we will better understand the love of our Triune God for His Creation and also become better equipped to express this love to one another and to those far beyond the confines of our individual households and our parishes, stated His Eminence Metropolitan Gerasimos. Although there are many factors that contribute to the health of our Orthodox family, many of which will be addressed through existing as well as new ministries, prayer is quintessential. Whether living in the monastery or in the world, each of us must commit ourselves to a discipline of prayers throughout the day. It is then and only then that we can begin to pray without ceasing as commanded by the Holy Apostle Paul. The Church has the great responsibility to provide for our people in ways that relate to their lives in an ever-changing society. What good are ornate churches, gymnasiums and educational facilities if we are not doing the work of the Lord? We can have the most beautiful buildings but if they are not filled with Gods presence, Gods work, and Gods love in us, they become nothing more than museums instead of thriving communities of spiritual renewal, worship and service. It is when we finally become committed to Building Up the House of God that the work of the Lord truly begins.

As scientific and technological changes occur in our societies today at high speed and with penetrating power, our everyday life is profoundly affected by them. Because such developments are novel and because they have the capacity to affect fundamental questions, such as those related to the beginning and end of life, human reproduction, the way we receive and process information, the structure of the society, and our present and future existence in the physical environment, critical legal, ethical and moral questions emerge that often puzzle the common citizen as well as the societal leadership. Many of these issues have become hot and contested questions on the political arena but have also entered the consciousness of religious leaders. Such issues are specifically concerned with the possible impact these developments might have on theological teachings and moral positions and practices that have been accepted and observed for centuries or even millennia. Based on the above observations, a need was perceived for the clergy and lay leadership to be better informed on scientific and technological issues, and for the laity who are engaged in science and technology to understand the broader implications (ethical, sociological, and religious) of science and technology and the concerns that are generated by rapid advances and radical changes. To address these needs among both clergy and laity, the Archdiocesan Advisory Committee on Science and Technology (AACST) was formed in 2001 by a group of scientists, engineers, medical and legal professionals, as well as theologians, under the guidance of His Eminence Archbishop Demetrios, and with the approval of the Holy Eparchial Synod and the Archdiocesan Council. The membership of the Committee is based on the following set of criteria: (i) wide professional recognition and excellence in the respective fields of endeavor; (ii) proven, active involvement in the life of the Church and a substantive knowledge of Orthodox theology; and (iii) willingness to devote energy and time to the task. The Committee membership is a living list and, therefore, continues to be enriched with new members as more persons who fulfill these 98

criteria are nominated and appointed. The work of the Committee has been organized in three Subcommittees as follows: 1. Subcommittee on Bioethics and Medical Issues; Coordinator: Prof. Gayle Woloschak. 2. Subcommittee on Energy, Environment, and Economics; Coordinator: Dr. Achilles G. Adamantiades; and 3. Subcommittee on Physical Sciences and Advanced Technologies; Coordinator: Dr. Nikolaos Paschalidis. The Committee has been working through local meetings, ad hoc consultations, conferences, and exchanges of electronic mail. The Committee made presentations at all Clergy-Laity Congresses since the year 2002, as follows: the 36th, in Los Angeles (summer of 2002); the 37th, in New York City (summer of 2004); the 38th in Nashville, Tennessee (summer of 2006); and the 39th in Washington, D.C. (summer of 2008). In this last Clergy-Laity Congress, the Committee organized a special session on The Ethics of Global Climate Change with representatives from the United Nations, the U.S. Government, the academic world, and the theological field. The session was co-chaired by the NGO Representative of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese to the United Nations. The papers presented in the above Congresses as well as additional publications and papers can be found at the Committees web site, accessible at According to its official terms of reference, the AACST serves in an advisory capacity to the Archbishop, the Synod, and the clergy and lay leadership of the Archdiocese. The Committee works also toward the preparation of resource material that will assist the pastoral and educational ministry of the Church. The Committee interacts with similar committees of the Orthodox Church, including the Social and Moral Issues Committee (SMIC) of SCOBA, and other Christian denominations.

aRCHives8 East 79th Street, New York, NY 10075-0106 Tel.: (212) 570-3517 Nikie Calles Director of Archives Email: the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America has amassed a unique and valuable collection of materials relating to the history of the Greek people, their culture and religion, in the United States. this material continues to be an important linchpin to the present-day culture. Much of the material is also important information and graphics for the ongoing day-to-day functionality of many aspects of the Archdiocese. Since the establishment of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of North and South America in 1922, the evolution of the Greek-American community has been a primary interest of the leadership of the Church. to meet this concern, the Department of Archives was created in 1964 to serve as a repository of Orthodoxy and hellenism in America. the mission of the Department is to systematically collect, organize, catalogue, and maintain the documents relating to the history of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America and the Greek American community. As a repository of select resources, the departments goals are to preserve our indelible past, chronicle our present, and to provide a valuable resource center for future generations interested in the unique history of the Archdiocese, and the vast richness of our Greek Orthodox faith and hellenism in America. By looking through the departments collection, one can discover and appreciate the struggle and triumph of Orthodoxy and the Archdiocese since its inception, while also understanding the Churchs identity and its relationship to others. Included in the Archives files are hundreds of documents representing numerous categories of Church development. Among the categories indexed are: 1. the establishment and incorporation of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America; 2. the historical development of key institutions and governing bodies within the Church; 3. the structure and reorganization of the Archdiocese; 4. the listings of all clergymen within the hierarchy of the Church; 5. the progress of the ecumenical movement; 6. the records of the Ecumenical and Orthodox Patriarchates. In addition, the Archives has gathered an extensive photograph file and book collection on hellenism in America. Undoubtedly, the most extensive and authentic repository of the history of the Greek Orthodox Church and of Greeks in America, the Office of Archives is now in a position to offer its services to scholars, researchers and authors. It is ready to provide them with the resources necessary for their research. Information and photographs are available upon request.

For the physical security of our lives we must institute a pension, life insurance, medical and disability program. to address the temporal needs of our clergy the Archdiocese Benefits Committee was established to direct and manage the Archdiocesan Benefits Program for clergy and lay employees. The Archdiocese Benefits Committee meets twice a year, each Spring and Fall, to receive and act on reports from its standing committees. Each standing committee consists of clergy and lay-persons with particular interest and professional expertise in the areas the committee oversees. the Administration Committee meets at least four times a year. It is responsible for the operation of the Pension Plan. It establishes rules for its administration and acts on applications for pension benefits and related issues. the Benevolence Committee considers and acts on requests for financial assistance for clergy and their families. the Investment Committee meets regularly to review the investment performance of the Pension Fund against established objectives and strategies. It establishes the investment guidelines and has the power to appoint and dismiss the funding agent(s). the Insurance Plans Committee meets as needed to consider issues related to the Arch diocese-sponsored insurance plans. It selects the insurance carrier, appoints the broker-administrator and negotiates benefits and rates.100

Papagermanos, Director/Press Officer Email: THE PRESS OFFICEThe Greek Orthodox Church in America has emerged on the national and international scene as a vital and vibrant religious presence and thus the Archdiocese is increasingly involved in issues of concern to its faithful and to the society at large. The Archdiocese Press Office, News and Media Relations cultivates and maintains the relationships of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America with Press and Media organizations in the United States and abroad in order to best communicate the Churchs mission and message of hope and love. The Press Office has a pivotal role in explaining how the ministries, offices, programs and policies of the Archdiocese have an impact on the parishes, the community, the clergy and the faithful. In the words of His Eminence Archbishop Demetrios of America, the Press Office has the role of representing the Archdiocese in an excellent way and facilitating her sacred work of promoting the Orthodox Faith and the universal values of Hellenism. In a democracy, dealing with the press is a duty, writes Stephen Hess, a Senior Fellow on Governance Studies with the Brookings Institution and Distinguished Research Professor of Media and Public Affairs at George Washington University. St. Paul in his second letter to Timothy writes: and they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables. But you be watchful in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, fulfill your ministry (2 Timothy 4:45). Dealing honestly and truthfully with the Press is keeping with St. Pauls charge, is a Christian duty and an important ministry. The Press Office is the daily conduit through which the Press gets information on the life and workings of the Archdiocese. Its role is dual; on one hand to deal with the Press and on the other to keep the Archbishop and senior staff informed on press interests. It strives to provide advice and ways on how to deal with the news media and, using news management techniques, helps the Archdiocese to maintain a positive public image and avoid negative media coverage. In particular the Press Office is responsible for: Responding and answering journalists inquiries Writing, editing and distributing press releases, media advisories, fact sheets, press packets and media kits Initiating and developing feature stories in print and electronic media Arranging and organizing press conferences, news briefings, media interviews, photo opportunities, visits and public events Coordinating photo coverage and dissemination of photos and video to Press Cultivating new relationships and monitor and nurture existing ones with national, ethnic and international media Monitoring, researching and evaluating news Developing and reassessing clear goals in cooperation with other departments of the Archdiocese Developing and maintaining a crisis plan and procedures Assisting in Archdiocese special projects and in staging large public events Developing and maintaining relationships with other press offices (church, religious, governmental, organizational) The director of the Press Office also represents the Archdiocese in community public interest organizations, develops pertinent community relations, monitors community events and activities and interfaces with various event organizers.

They maintain nurseries, pre-school centers, kindergartens, and elementary and secondary grades. Both the day and the afternoon Greek language schools offer a program of studies that includes the teaching of Modern Greek language, Greek history and culture as well as elements of Greek Orthodox faith and worship.

The initiative is named after Alexander the Great whose conquests: 1) Unified the disparate Greek city states 2) Established Greek as the common language throughout the world 3) Laid the foundation for Christians to utilize Greek to spread the saving message of the Gospel throughout the nations Following in this legacy of our faith and heritage, the Alexander Project aims to: 1) Unify the geographically diverse metropolises, parishes, and the Archdiocese with desperately needed centralized system for parishioner management 2) Establish a set of technology standards and a unified technology architecture that will allow for seamless interoperability across systems and services 3) Leverage this dynamic tool for Orthodox Christian ministry Among its many benefits, this strategic technology plan will digitize the Archdioceses antiquated sacramental registry, provide a mechanism for instantaneous parishioner updates throughout the Archdiocese, and create a personalized and tailored ministry and educational experience for parishioners based upon their role within the Church.

Deacon John Chryssavgis, Ecumenical Assistant Constantin Ursache, Ecumenical Assistant Email: Dionisia Floropoulos, Administrative Assistant Email: dfloropoulos@goarch.orgThe Ecumenical Office has as its main function the task of providing information, stimulating interest and coordinating ecumenical activities on the archdiocesan, metropolitan and parish levels. It adheres to the principle that Orthodoxy and Orthodox ecumenism must always speak the truth, never compromising the integrity and purity of Orthodox teachings, but always respecting the sincerity of the religious convictions and spiritual sensitivities of others. It involves the following areas of interest: A) Assembly of Canonical Orthodox Bishops of North and Central America Established by the Decision of The Fourth Pre-Conciliar Pan-Orthodox Conference that met at the Orthodox Center of the Ecumenical Patriarchate in Chambsy, Switzerland from 6 to 13 June 2009. This Conference, to which all of the Autocephalous Churches were invited and were represented, studied the issue of the canonical organization of the Orthodox Diaspora (places where there is no unitary Church administration). Pursuant to article 16 of the Rules of Pre-Conciliar Pan-Orthodox Conferences, this Conference discussed the relevant documents submitted in 1990 and 1993 by the Inter-Orthodox Preparatory Commission, and created twelve Episcopal Assemblies throughout the world, North and Central America being one of them. The Assembly met for the first time under the chairmanship of His Eminence Archbishop Demetrios (as Exarch of the Ecumenical Patriarchate) in May of 2010 (May 26-28). Fifty-five bishops of the region attended the meeting. The Assembly declared itself to be the successor to the Standing Conference of Canonical Orthodox Bishops in the Americas (SCOBA), assuming its agencies, dialogues, and other ministries. B) Standing Conference of the Canonical Orthodox Bishops in the Americas (SCOBA) Established in 1960, SCOBA brought together the first hierarchs of most of the canonical Orthodox jurisdictions in the Americas. The purpose of the Conference was to make the ties of unity among the canonical Orthodox Churches and their administrations stronger and more visible. As of May 2010, the activities of SCOBA have been suspended while the Assembly of Canonical Orthodox Bishops of North and Central America begins assuming the responsibilities, agencies, dialogues, and other ministries that had belonged to SCOBA in the past. These include: Bilateral Dialogues of SCOBA 1. Joint Commission of Eastern and Oriental Orthodox Churches 2. North American Orthodox/Roman Catholic Theological Consultation 3. Joint Committee of Orthodox/Roman Catholic Bishops C) The National Council of Churches of Christ in the USA (NCCC) and Church World Service (CWS) The Greek Orthodox Archdiocese is represented by clergy and laity on the Governing Board, the Faith and Order Commission, and several key committees. D) Inter-Religious Agencies Ongoing relations take place with other groups involved in ecumenical work, such as the American Jewish Committee, the World Conference of Religions for Peace (WCRP), Appeal of Conscience Foundation, National Inter-Religious Leadership Initiative (NILI), Christians for Middle East Peace (CMEP) and the Council of the and the Council of the Churches of the City of New York. E) United Nations The Archdiocesan Council has NGO status at the UN. The office oversees the work of our representatives, who have been led by Mrs. Lila Prounis since 1985. F) Christian Churches Together (CCT) The Archdiocese is a founding member of this new ecumenical agency that is comprised of five families of churches: Orthodox, Catholic, Mainline Protestant, Historic Black and Evangelical. It was officially launched in 2006.

Sitaras, Director Melissa Tsongranis, Associate Director Panayiotis Sakellariou, Resource Coordinator Email: Web: OF INTERFAITH MARRIAGE Vital statistics kept by the Department of Registry indicate that the numbers of inter-Christian marriages conducted in the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America have steadily increased. Today, nearly two thirds (63%) of all marriages conducted in the Archdiocese are designated inter-Christian. When Greek Orthodox persons marrying outside of the Archdiocese are also considered, intermarriage rates are likely closer to 7580%. The Department of Marriage and Family has been established to consider issues relevant to the well-being of marriage, family life, our Church and society. The institutions of marriage and family are under assault, and the challenges are becoming increasingly more complex. The Archdiocese is sensitive to these changes, and is seeking to address them in an effort to facilitate religious and spiritual development and promote healthy, holy marriage and family life from an Orthodox perspective. To pursue this effort there are currently two arms of this Departmentthe Center for Family Care and the Office of Interfaith Marriage CENTER FOR FAMILY CARE The mission of the Center for Family Care of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America is, in the words of His Eminence Archbishop Demetrios, both to affirm the importance of the family as a blessed gift of God and to address the specific needs of families as they try to live in a very challenging culture and world. As Orthodox Christians, we know that each and every family needs to be connected to the Churcha place where true relationships with God and one another are nurtured and sustained. Thus, through this program we will be working to bring more aspects of our faith into the home and to bring more families into the Church. There are many facets of family life and, therefore, different ways we can minister to the families in our Greek Orthodox Archdiocese. We just completed our first national study on the Orthodox Family in America at Home and in Church which gave us much insight into the religious practices of families (for the results visit our Web site). Currently, we create resources, provide seminars, and facilitate retreats for families and the parishes that minister to them. As the ministry grows, our scope will branch out so that we can provide resources and services for all Orthodox Christian families in every stage of the family life cycle. Currently some of our resources are: ParishFamilyNight TableTopPrayerGuide:VolumeIandII FamilyWorship:CreatingandUsingaPlaceinYourHome Family Gospel Lessons Family Retreats, Seminars, and Parent Workshops Web site Family Connections page in the Orthodox Observer Family Link Email Ministry Given these and other similar statistics, the Archdiocese has chosen to view these trends as a challenge and an opportunity for growth. With love toward all, and with a desire to witness Orthodoxy to all persons who choose to worship in our Greek Orthodox churches, the Archdiocese has taken a proactive approach in its efforts to reach out to intermarried couples and their families. All resources produced by this department are evidenced based and firmly grounded on Orthodox Theology. Some of the resources available are as follows: The Interfaith Marriage Web site affords clergy, lay leaders, lay workers and inter-Christian, interfaith couples readings, resources and related links. A regular column continues to be featured in the in the Orthodox Observer addressing marital and family concerns. In addition, articles have been authored for professional journals as well as theological publications A resource entitled, WhenYouIntermarry:AResourcefor Inter-ChristianInterculturalCouples,ParentsandFamilies has been authored by Fr. Joanides. A companion resource for clergy and lay leaders entitled, MinisteringtoIntermarriedCouples:A ResourceforClergyandLayWorkers is also available. In addition, a resource to promote marital satisfaction entitled, Attending to YourMarriage:AResourceforChristianCouples has also been written. Marriage building workshops, and lectures on the topic of intermarriage continue to be offered throughout the Archdiocese upon invitation. A series of brochures entitled, InterfaithMarriage:Opportunityfor Outreach is also now available for clergy, lay leaders and intermarried couples and their families. A premarital education program entitled The Journey of Marriage is in the final stages of development.

The fundraising approach of the office is based on direct experience and personal involvement with Greek Orthodox parishes across the United States. the OPD aims to assist parishes using an effective strategy that is rooted in sound fundraising principles. Even more importantly, OPD staff members work to ensure that funds are raised in such a way as to glorify God and to enhance the spiritual life of all involved in the project. Areas of Assistance include the following:

What is the next goal for your parish?

Capital Campaign Planning Studies

Before undertaking a major capital campaign, it is advisable to have an objective third party assess the parishs fundraising potential. A planning study provides this feedback to a parish as it identifies the right steps to take to maximize the campaigns effectiveness.

Attaining these goals is always challenging. thankfully, there is help available to give your parish guidance. you do not need to start this work from scratch! At any point in time, many parishes throughout the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese are in need of fundraising assistance from an objective and experienced source. the use of outside fundraising counsel, which is standard for nonprofit organizations, has become a widely accepted practice for individual parishes, as well. the benefits received from these services in terms of greater organization, better execution, and more dollars raised makes the costs worthwhile. While there are a variety of fundraising consultants whose services are specifically tailored to work with churches, there are few such consultants who understand the unique characteristics of Greek Orthodox parishes. In 2004, through a grant from the Archbishop Iakovos leadership 100 Endowment Fund, the Archdiocese created the Office of Parish Development (OPD) to provide such fundraising assistance specifically for Greek Orthodox parishes.114

Ongoing Capital Campaign Assistance and Management

A successful campaign begins with a strategy built from experience. It is conducted through tried-and-true methods. Most parishes do not have fundraising professionals on staff to guide this important effort.

Strategic Planning Seminars and Assistance

Strategic Planning workshops are an effective way to gain parish consensus, plan outreach initiatives, identify parishioner hidden talents, and begin to move the parish toward a preferred future.

Stewardship Workshops and Assistance

All parishes are at slightly different points in growing in stewardship. In the important work of encouraging individual stewards to stretch themselves further in giving back to God through the Church, no one strategy will work for all parishes. The Office of Parish Development can help your parish to improve its current stewardship practices through a variety of ways.

Papadeas, Administrative Assistant Email: epapadeas@goarch.orgthis Archdiocesan Department strives to further develop and coordinate the philanthropic work of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America, working closely with various community organizations, most especially the ladies Philoptochos Society. Responding to the apostolic exhortations that our love may abound more and more (Philippians 1:9) and that faith without works is dead (James 2:26), this office seeks to motivate all communicants, men and women, young and old, to be more philanthropic in their outlook. Contrary to the modern definition, which has reduced philanthropy to financial contributions, the Department of Philanthropy is not concerned with fund-raising but rather with promoting philanthropy in its original and purest expression i. e., love for ones fellow man love expressed , in thought, word, and deed, cognizant of the fact that God is love. In addition, this office strives to heighten sensitivity within parishes, Church-affiliated organizations and the faithful of the Archdiocese to those members of the community with special needs so that there is outreach to them and inclusion within the life of the parishes. these include people who are blind, physically handicapped, mentally challenged, afflicted with debilitating diseases, elderly facing problems because of their advanced age, those in prison, those suffering from terminal illnesses, and countless others. It is the intent of the office to facilitate as much as possible their participation in the salvific life of the Church. As of 2006, the Department of Philanthropy maintains the Benevolence Fund for Retired Clergy and Widowed Presvyteres and during the past 4 years has collected and distributed over $250,000 in monthly stipends to individuals with meager retirement incomes. Moreover, the department was charged with the formidable task of coordinating and overseeing the distribution of the emergency assistance funds collected by the Archdiocese following the disasters of September 11th, hurricane Katrina and the 2007 fires in Greece.

Kontogiorgis, Director Email: Athena Parisi, Assistant Email: aparisi@goarch.orgThe Department of Registry of the Archdiocese maintains a variety of records pertaining to the life and activities of the faithful of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America. These records are often used to issue transcripts for the faithful who have lost original certificates (which are now required for legal or ecclesiastical purposes). The Department also issues ecclesiastical licenses to marry, divorce decrees (following a Spiritual Court hearing), baptismal and chrismation certificates (for use by the priests), and forms for reporting deaths and funerals. Below is an overview of how some of these responsibilities are handled:

Archdiocese LevelThe Archdiocese Department of Registry maintains the records of weddings and divorces from 1923 until August 31, 1979, that took place throughout the Archdiocese. Since September 1, 1979, only those records that pertain to the parishes of the Direct Archdiocesan District are kept at the Archdiocese Registry Department. Records of baptisms, chrismations and funerals as the parish priests submitted them are also archived at the Archdiocese. The Archdiocese also coordinates the tabulation of the statistics from throughout the Archdiocese. This information is published annually in the Yearbook of the Archdiocese. The Department of Registry will be seeking to utilize the latest technology to address the enormous task of sorting, indexing and cataloguing the paper records archived, as well as to investigate the possibility of processing certificates and documents electronically, in order to: 1) Make it feasible to access the documents that the faithful request in a timely manner; 2) Provide multiple copies of the archiving media for storage and safekeeping atsecure locations across the country; 3) Provide the parish priests the ability to process affidavits and certificates in a more timely fashion; and, 4) Enable the Archdiocese and each Metropolis to have close to real-time statistics of Sacraments being celebrated across the country and in each Metropolis. Accurate documentation and the ability to provide such documentation will become even more critical in the years ahead. The Department of Registry is committed to utilizing the resources at its disposal to ensure, as much as possible, that the faithful of the Holy Archdiocese of America have access to the information and documentation that they require.117

Parish LevelAll records of baptisms, chrismations, weddings, divorces and funerals are maintained in the Parish Registry Books. The local parish priest detailing the information recorded in his parishs Registry Books issues transcripts upon receiving a request from the individual involved. The priest who prepares them signs these transcripts. His hierarch then validates the authenticity of the priests signature. These transcripts can be used as needed and serve the same function as those original certificates issued at the time of the Sacrament. In the case of a Church Divorce Decree, however, duplicate copies are not issued. The original, as issued, must be submitted when applying for an ecclesiastical marriage license.

Metropolis LevelAs of September 1, 1979, each Metropolis established a Registry Department, which processes marriage license requests, issues ecclesiastical licenses to marry, and maintains copies of the records for baptisms, chrismations, marriages, and funerals, as the parish priests following the Sacraments submit them. The Metropolis Registry Departments also maintain the petitions for divorces, the minutes of the Spiritual Court hearings that pertain to divorce petitions and copies of the divorce decrees issued. The Metropolis Registry Departments also issue to the priests certificates signed by the Metropolitan for baptisms and chrismations. (Prior to September 1, 1979, the Archdiocesan Department of Registry did all of this for all the parishes of the Archdiocese. Since then, this is only done for the parishes within the Direct Archdiocesan District.)

Kordaris, Director Email: FrJimK@goarch.orgOn Mar 18, 2009 His Eminence Archbishop Demetrios announced the appointment of Fr. James Kordaris to the position of Director of Stewardship, Outreach & Evangelism. In announcing this appointment, Archbishop Demetrios commented, This new department, being the result of merging two departments, will renew our focus on Stewardship resources and education while advancing Outreach and Evangelism and producing practical and modern resources for Parish Ministry. The Director will work together with the Stewardship Commission and the Outreach & Evangelism Advisory Board of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America. Both are comprised of representatives from each Metropolis and the Direct Archdiocesan District and were formed to share best practices from parishes throughout the country and support Archdiocesan efforts to provide guidance and practical resources to the parishes.

THE ANNUAL STEWARDSHIP RESOURCE PACKET The Stewardship booklet and the materials that accompany it are directed to parish leadership throughout the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America as part of an ongoing effort to provide practical and inspirational ministry resources. Stewardship Ministries, in coordination with the other national ministries of the Archdiocese, is offering these resources under the unified theme of Gather My People to My Home: Come and See. A YEAR-ROUND EFFORT The packet of stewardship resources is the first step in a yearround effort to support parish stewardship ministries and to educate and inspire the faithful. Additional resources will be made available electronically through the Stewardship Web Site, E-mail communications and hard copy. NATIONAL STEWARDSHIP COMMISSION Stewardship Ministries is supported by the National Stewardship Commission, made up of clergy and laity from each Metropolis and the Archdiocesan District. The Commission meets on a regular basis to share best practices as well as the needs and concerns of the regions they represent. NATIONAL STEWARDSHIP TRAVEL TEAM The National Stewardship Commission includes a Travel Team which offers Stewardship Seminars, and has initiated a program to train stewardship teams in each metropolis/ district which will then train local parish stewardship teams. PARISH MANAGEMENT SOFTWARE INITIATIVE The Stewardship Commission has established a Committee on Parish Management Software. Committee goals are to evaluate Parish Management Software programs currently available and to make recommendations to the parishes on the most suitable programs for their needs. Additional benefits might include favorable pricing due to number of users, greater ease of reporting to the Metropolis and Archdiocese through compatible formats, and better support through improved communication between parishes and software providers.122

PERSON-TO-PERSON MINISTRIES The Department of Stewardship, Outreach & Evangelism provides a number of resources to assist parishes in revitalizing the faith of active Orthodox Christians; reaching out to inactive Orthodox Christians, and offering the Orthodox Christian faith to all who would receive it. The list of resources includes: OUTREACH-ORIENTED SERMONS to assist priests in instilling an outreach mindset among parishioners. These have been offered as sermons and included in parish newsletters. ORTHODOX NATURAL CHURCH DEVELOPMENT The Department is piloting a program for objectively evaluating, assessing, and measuring church health using a process called Orthodox Natural Church Development (ONCD). This program has been in existence for almost 20 years, and its implementation among Orthodox Christian parishes here in North America is increasing.

His Eminence Archbishop Demetrios of America, Ph.D., Th.D., Primate of the Greek Orthodox Church in America Rev. Fr. Frank Marangos, D.Min., Ed.D., Dean of the CathedralThe Archdiocesan Cathedral of the Holy Trinity is an institution of the Archdiocese serving as the national Cathedral of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America and the Archbishop. The Cathedral hosts patriarchs, hierarchs, dignitaries and visitors from throughout the world. The Cathedral also serves as a home parish for over 800 families, offering regular divine worship, Sunday School, The Cathedral School (a private accredited institution of learning offering grades K-8); Greek Afternoon School, Philoptochos, Bible Study, cultural events, social services, and fellowship. The Cathedral Fellowship organization for ages 18 and older promotes fellowship in the context of spiritual, cultural, social, educational (Adult Greek Language program), and charitable projects and events. A relational ministry for young adults called FOS (Forum on Orthodox Spirituality) explores topics of Orthodox faith and worship in view of contemporary society. The Golden Circle is a ministry for those in their golden years. More recent ministries include the Support Group for Emotional Distress and the Cathedral Parents Society. A monthly Holy Unction Service is offered for all who are sick in body, mind, or spirit. The Cathedrals outreach includes a full service library and bookstore as well as live broadcasts of the Divine Liturgy each Sunday via television and the Internet. Sermons and The Cathedral Voice newsletter are archived online via the Cathedral website. The prophetic words of Archbishop Iakovos are as true today as when first uttered in 1960: The Cathedral is not meant to be solely a religious center or simply a place of worship or a home of Christian benevolence. It must be made to symbolize Americas Greek Orthodox Church and Community and, in general, to reflect the entire Hellenic Omogenia. It shall be our primary commitment to elevate and expand it in all religious aspects so that we shall ever be proud of this Jewel of Orthodoxy.

HELLENIC COLLEGE AND HOLY CROSSHellenic College and Holy Cross Greek Orthodox School of Theology are specialized Orthodox institutions of higher learning. Hellenic College is the only Orthodox college in the Western Hemisphere and Holy Cross is one of several Orthodox seminaries in this country. What began as Holy Cross Theological School, founded in 1937 in Pomfret, Connecticut, has served as the seminary of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese in America since its inception. Students and faculty have been able to partake of the rich cultural and educational opportunities of the greater Boston area since the school moved in 1947 to its beautiful campus in Brookline. Holy Cross, recognizing the ever expanding needs of the Church, expanded in 1966. Its growth and maturation as an academic entity allowed for the creation of a separate undergraduate school which became known as Hellenic College. The campus now comprises 59 acres. Students, many of them married with children, and faculties of both schools continue to form one community and share the same facilities. The two schools function as separate entities. Holy Cross offers graduate programs of study leading to the degrees of Master of Divinity (M.Div.), Master of Theological Studies (M.T.S.) and Master of Theology (Th.M). Holy Cross, as an accredited graduate school of theology, has become one of the most important institutions of the Orthodox Church in the Western Hemisphere. Education at Holy Cross integrates learning and faith. The schools programs of study reflect the religious and cultural values of the Greek Orthodox tradition through excellence in teaching, learning and scholarship. Life at Holy Cross consists of worship, education, scholarship and service. This life enables students to develop their spiritual and intellectual potential to their fullest while allowing faculty to pursue teaching and scholarship in their particular disciplines with academic freedom. It is a unique environment where personal growth and intellectual and spiritual maturity for the men and women who provide the priestly and lay witness and leadership of Orthodox Christianity in the Western world are of the utmost importance. Hellenic College, by virtue of its being the only accredited four year liberal arts college in the Americas, is also a truly unique institution. The college is based on Orthodox Christian beliefs and is enriched by the ideals of a Hellenic classical education. Hellenic College believes that the dynamic synergy of reason and faith lies at the very heart of who we are. Hellenic College offers programs and degrees in elementary education, literature and history, management and leadership, human development, classics and religious studies. Students from diverse religious traditions and racial and ethnic backgrounds are welcome in the college. Holy Cross is accredited by the Association of Theological Schools and Hellenic College by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges.

Sitaras, Executive DirectorSaint Basil Academy is the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese home for children in need. Purchased in 1944 by the National Philoptochos ladies Society, the former Jacob Ruppert estate is nestled among a lush green forest along the Eastern Bank of the hudson River directly opposite the United States West Point Military Academy, and within an hours drive from New york City. Serving as a philanthropic center of the Church, the purpose of the Academy is to provide a loving Christian environment, where resident children are nurtured into adulthood. Although children are brought to the Academy for various reasons, the common thread of all the resident children is the inability of a parent or guardian to sufficiently care for them. Operating 24 hours a day, seven days a week, the Academy serves Orthodox children from all areas of the country including Arizona, Illinois, Massachusetts, Connecticut, New york, and New Jersey. the children are referred to the Academy through parish priests and Philoptochos, and most recently through referrals from departments of social services in Massachusetts and New york. Focusing on the total child, each childs spiritual, emotional and material needs are addressed and provided for in chapel, recreational, and family type settings. Academically the children are strongly encouraged to meet their goals while receiving their formal education from area school systems. the children are fully integrated within their schools. When not in school, the children are the responsibility of the Residential life Counselors. the Residential program, which is administered by the Residential life staff, promotes individual growth and development. Within the dormitory type setting, the Residential life staff is responsible for maintaining discipline, teaching personal hygiene, and teaching responsibility through the assignment 132 of specific chores. Recreationally, activities such as volleyball, baseball, soccer, softball, arts and crafts and cooking are promoted. Overall, the children have a variety of programs to choose from in order for them to find and develop their own creative outlets. the spiritual aspect of the program beautifully enhances all that the children learn at school and at the Academy. After the daily afternoon chapel service there is a catechetical sermonette where the children learn about their faith. Sunday mornings the children sing the entire Divine liturgy and are able to share the joy as one family. the importance of the Orthodox faith is always accented. that, coupled with the diverse activities and outside schooling, is what allows the children to grow up to be healthy, whole some, and well-rounded Christian individuals. the Academy is able to provide this safe family environment and home thanks to the generosity and prayers of many of its stewards. Educating, housing, and clothing a single child is quite costly, and the costs are always increasing. Caring for the children, the first and foremost priority, in addition to maintaining over 260 acres and 25 buildings, is a task of tremendous proportion. however, over the years, the generosity of the ladies Philoptochos, AhEPA, Daughters of Penelope, various church communities, individuals, volunteers and others who have given of their time, talents, finances and love, is what sustains the childrens mission. throughout the course of the past year, hundreds of individuals and many groups have visited. Retreats and conferences are often held at the Academy, including GOyA retreats, Philoptochos retreats, and visits from the young Adult league, AhEPA and Daughters of Penelope. Saint Basil Academy always has been and will continue to be a safe haven for Orthodox children in need. however, in an effort to accommodate the many

saint basil aCadeMyvisitors, and expanding on the current mission, there are plans for a new Retreat and Conference Center, which will be a spiritual haven for all Orthodox Christians, young and old. the future is exciting and the potential for ministry is tre mendous...all this for the Glory of God and his children. If you would like information about volunteering or if you are considering Saint Basil Academy for your estate plans, please contact the Executive Director.

Opened in 1958, this Archdiocesan institution has provided quality care to countless Greek Orthodox elderly. While most residents are from the Tri-State area (NY, NJ &CT), a growing number are from other areas of the countries and recently individuals have been admitted from CO, IL, FL, MI, and SC. A non-profit entity, St. Michaels has never received subsidies from the Archdiocese or the government but depends on boarding fees and donations to meet its expenses. Last year, close to one-quarter of the Homes operating budget was covered by contributions and the quality of life; residents would be greatly diminished without these gifts. The facility encompasses private and semi-private bedrooms for 60 senior citizens; a dining room; a magnificent chapel; modern medical facility; recreation room; beauty salon and other accommodations needed for the quality care of its residents. In addition to housing and meals, which are prepared under the supervision of a certified nutritionist, the Home provides residents with assistance with their daily routine, laundry and housekeeping services, a full-time recreation program and 24 hour supervision. Two geriatric specialists, a podiatrist, psychiatrist, and psychologist each visit the Home once and week, while an audiologist, dermatologist and optometrist visit as needed. In addition, arrangements have been made for procedures such as x-rays, blood tests, EKGs, etc. to be done in-house by visiting technicians. Applicants must be Greek Orthodox and as per the strict regulations of the Department of Health, all residents must be ambulatory and not require on-going nursing care. Individuals are not required to turn over their assets but submit the monthly boarding fee established by the level of accommodation they have requested. Applicants on SSI are accepted by the Home and each case is individually evaluated (no one will be denied admission because of inability to pay). Because of the increased demand for its services and to meet the growing needs of the community, St. Michaels is aggressively pursuing an expansion project which will not only increase its capacity but will also expand the level of care which the facility is presently permitted to offer by the State.

Grace Bishop John, Glory to God, Marianne Apostolides The Lucky Child and Robert Krantz, Falling in Love with Sophia. The Foundation opened on November 5 the temporary exhibit, All Sides of the Parthenon. It will run through June 30, 2011. Many parish organizations visited the Shrine throughout 2010. Fourth graders throughout the State of Florida visit through during the school year and the Shrine continues to be a destination for Elderhostel Tours. St Photios Greek Orthodox National Shrine is supported by the revenue generated through its dedicated Foundation Trustees who oversee the Light A Candle, Friends Membership, the Archbishop Iakovos Endowment and Enhancement funds and the Wall of Tribute programs. In addition, parishes that order ecclesiastical items through the National Shrine Church Supplies ensure much needed income for the Shrine. The Shrine is also grateful for the generosity of the National Ladies Philoptochos Society, Leadership 100 and its grand benefactors, Eula Carlos and Charles Masterpolis. The Shrine is open Monday through Saturday, 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Sunday from 12 6:00 p.m. The Shrine is closed New Years Day, Good Friday, Easter Sunday, Fourth of July, Thanksgiving, and Christmas.

Established in 1970 as the National Presbyters Council with the expressed purpose of receiving counsel from and offering counsel to then Archbishop Iakovos (19112005) concerning priestly issues, the current APC continues to work closely with Archbishop Demetrios, as well as the Eparchial Synod of Bishops and the Chancellor of the Archdiocese in addressing the concerns of our clergy. Each Metropolitan Clergy Syndesmos is represented by two members of the clergy who are elected for a two year term, which both commences with and concludes at the Archdiocese Clergy Laity Congress. The Council extends its function through the appointment of standing committees, which deals with clergy issues such as liturgical concerns, continuing education, moral issues, family and celibate life, ministry and mission, and clergy health insurance and retirement benefits. Priests nationwide may keep abreast of current events through the web-site and the APC publication, The Presbyter. The APC organizes and sponsors the National Clergy Retreat which is held biennially on the off-year of the Clergy Laity Congress. A Benevolent Fund has been established to assist a brother priest, a sister presvytera, or a clergy family in time of extreme financial need. The fund is administered jointly by the APC and the National Sisterhood of Presvyteres and requests for assistance may be made to the President of either organization.

The Society was established in November 1931by the late Ecumenical Patriarch Athenagoras I, who was then serving as Archbishop of North and South America. Organizationally, Philoptochos is comprised of the National Board, Metropolis Boards and the 485 Chapters in the parishes of the Archdiocese. The Philoptochos mission is: Tohelpthepoor,thedestitute,thehungry,theaged,the sick, the unemployed, the orphaned, the imprisoned, the widowed, the handicapped, the victims of disasters, to undertake the burial of impoverished persons and to offer assistance to anyone who may need the help of the Church through fund raising efforts; and Topromotecharitable,benevolentandphilanthropicpur poses of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America, through instructional programs, presentations, lectures, seminars and other educational resources; and TopreserveandperpetuateOrthodoxChristianconcepts and the Orthodox Christian Family, and through them, to promote the Greek Orthodox Faith and traditions, in accor dance with its doctrines, canons, discipline, divine worship, usages and customs; and TopromoteparticipationintheactivitiesoftheGreek Orthodox community, with the cooperation of the Parish Priest and the Parish Council. The charitable work of the Society is performed with discretion, courtesy and kindness. NATIONAL PHILOPTOCHOS SOCIETY PROGRAMS AND MINISTRY COMMITMENTS Academy of Saint Basil In March 1944, Archbishop Athenagoras requested that Philoptochos purchase the beautiful 250-acre estate of Jacob Ruppert in Garrison, NY, which is located on the shores of the Hudson River, directly opposite the U.S. Military Academy of West Point. With the purchase of this estate, the Philoptochos had the enormous task of completely renovating the property, which included several buildings, the main administration building, the Directors residence, classrooms and dormitories, a reception hall and building a Chapel. Philoptochos remains a key financial supporter of the Academy through three programs: Vasilopita This event is conducted during the month of January across the United States by every Chapter in every parish. It is a major source of funding for the Academy operating expenses. Sisterhood This program provides for the ongoing needs of the children of the Academy, such as clothing, furniture, equipment and essentials for the dormitories, kitchen, etc., as well as providing funding for the Graduation celebrations and special awards for graduating students. Zoe Cavalaris Education Fund The fund provides financial assistance to the graduates of the Academy to attend schools of higher education, as well as providing for tutors for the younger children in grade school and high school. Hellenic College Holy Cross School of Theology The Holy Cross School of Theology was established by Archbishop Athenagoras in June 1937, in Pomfret, CT. The Archbishop directed a special appeal to the Philoptochos to devote themselves to the School, where your sons will be educated as priests and teachers and urged the ladies to prove once again your strong faith. In the ensuing years, the Philoptochos was, and over seventy years later continues is strong commitment to offer financial support to Holy Cross through two programs: Scholarships For more than 20 years, scholarships have been awarded to worthy and dedicated students at both Holy Cross and Hellenic College to assist them with their tuition expenses. Lenten Event Philoptochos celebrates on the Third Sunday of Lent, observing the Veneration of the Holy Cross. The Chapters are requested to arrange a Lenten Event following the Divine Liturgy. Donations raised are used for the operational expenses of the School. Saint Photios Shrine In 1965, the Archdiocese purchased the Avero house in historic Saint Augustine, Florida to commemorate the arrival of the first Greek settlers in the New World in 1768. The Philoptochos continues its commitment to provide financial assistance towards the preservation of this National Shrine.


ladies PHiloPtoCHos soCietyOrthodox Christian Mission Center and Support a Mission Priest The Philoptochos Society provides financial support to the OCMC missionary teams, strengthening their ability to empower the Orthodox Church worldwide to carry its message to those who have yet to hear it and bring them within its fold. In addition, this ministry commitment enables Orthodox bishops and priests in mission areas, to build and restore churches, community centers, schools and medical facilities as well as to participate in training, teaching and field management, thereby increasing productivity. International Orthodox Christian Charities The IOCC is the official humanitarian aid agency of Orthodox Christians which provides food, shelter, economic self-sufficiency and hope to those in need around the world. Philoptochos partners with IOCC to provide Wheelchairs, fund a school and health center and respond to major world disasters. Ecumenical Patriarchate The philanthropies of the Ecumenical Patriarchate such as Balukli Hospital and nursing home, schools, shrines and parishes are supported by this ministry commitment. United Nations International Childrens Emergency Fund In 1979, to commemorate the United Nations International Year of the Child, Philoptochos became an Non-Governmental Organization with the United Nations and UNICEF. Philoptochos donations help this global organization to protect the rights, health and well being of all children. Social Services Since the late 1950s, upon the recommendation of Archbishop Iakovos, Philoptochos has placed an increased emphasis on the implementation of important programs to benefit the Greek Orthodox community, including, but not limited to, institutions of the Church, the philanthropies of the Ecumenical Patriarchate and assistance to Greek Orthodox families. Involvement in social and moral issues encouraged the establishment of several committees to address topics such as child abuse prevention, domestic violence, homelessness, pornography, drug and alcohol abuse, and aging. Since 1987, the National Philoptochos office has employed a professional Social Worker to assist the Greek Orthodox community in the United States as well as Greek and Cypriot nationals. The Department of Social Services is a critical and vital component of the organization. The mission of the Department is to improve the quality of life of those in need, in a way that maintains the dignity and self-respect of the individuals. Through confidential and professional services, the office provides outreach, education, information, support, intervention, motivation, advocacy, financial assistance and referral to local and broader resources. Autism Fund The Center for Disease Control and Prevention has called Autism a national public health crisis more common than pediatric cancer, diabetes and AIDS combined. This fund provides assistance and support to persons within the Autism spectrum and promotes education to heighten Autism awareness. 144 Childrens Medical Fund Since its establishment in 1989, the Childrens Medical Fund has sought to provide medical assistance to critically ill Greek, Greek-American and Orthodox children, whose families are unable to afford appropriate and necessary medical treatment. The Fund identifies and provides grants for innovative research programs to pediatric hospitals throughout the United States. Emergency Fund In recent years, there have been an unprecedented number of natural disasters throughout the world which have required repeated, direct solicitations to the Chapters, delaying the Societys ability to respond expeditiously and efficiently. This fund enables the Philoptochos Society to immediately respond to those in need, in times of national or international crises. General Medical Fund Philoptochos receives numerous requests for financial assistance for adults afflicted with a variety of medical conditions, which are outside the scope of restricted funds now established by the Society. The Society utilizes the Fund to provide assistance in those cases where appropriate funding is not available. National Sisterhood of Presvyteres (NSP) Benevolent Fund The National Sisterhood of Presvyteres was established in 1982, and is comprised of all Presbyteres of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America. Philoptochos raises funds to provide short-term support for clergy and/or their families in a time of crisis. Orthodox Christian Fellowship (OCF) Fund The OCF mission is to support fellowships on college campuses, whose members experience and witness to the Orthodox Church through community life, prayer, service to others and study of faith. This fund provides support to the more than 240 local OCF chapters throughout the country. Retired Clergy Associations (RCA) Benevolence Fund The Retired Clergy Association (RCA) of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America was founded and established by the late Fr. John Zanetos in 1988. Funds raised provide support and guidance for retired clergy who are facing financial problems or living at a poverty level. Seventy - Fifth Anniversary Founders Fund This fund, celebrating the seventy-fifth anniversary of the Philoptochos Society provides financial support to existing continuing care facilities serving the aging Greek Orthodox population in the United States, and may support the establishment of similar facilities.

Rev. Luke Uhl(303) 333-7794

the Greek Orthodox chaplain is a priest who provides the holy Mysteries to Orthodox Christians and who additionally provides pastoral ministry to people in all walks of life. Some priests serve full-time as chaplains in the armed forces, whereas other parish priests have assumed additional responsibilities as chaplains at Veterans Administration hospitals, with local police forces, at prisons, and in hospitals. One of the most significant features of chaplaincy activity is ministry to individuals other than Orthodox Christians, and the witness of our Orthodox faith among all Americans. Orthodox lay persons employed as professional hospital chaplains are not under the ecclesiastical supervision of the Archdiocese and are therefore not listed herein.


Armed Forces chaplains are highly-qualified priests who (1) integrate the roles of clergy and commissioned officer, (2) care for Orthodox Christians while providing for the free exercise of religion by all personnel, and (3) understand the realities of military life.

VETERANS ADMINISTRATION CHAPLAINSVeterans Administration chaplains are priests serving within VA facilities who are aware of the spiritual and moral dimensions which often arise from the anxieties, problems and fears which accompany illness and disabilities. these chaplains are also sensitive to the variety of religious and cultural backgrounds of the VA patients to whom ministry is provided.

PRISON CHAPLAINSPrison chaplains are priests doing challenging, pastoral ministry with inmates, staff, and their families. these chaplains provide individual spiritual and personal counseling, help bring resolution to crisis situations, respond to inmate needs, and serve as advocates for inmates rights.

POLICE CHAPLAINSPolice chaplains minister to members of law enforcement agencies having spiritual, psychological or emotional problems. Specific duties include: crisis intervention, death notification, grief counseling, memorial services, victim and witness assistance, confidential pastoral care, stress management, spiritual guidance, marriage and family guidance.

OTHER CHAPLAINSAll parish clergy routinely visit patients in hospitals and meet with university students. Some priests have additional training and have attained qualifications to provide specialized ministry to individuals in these categories.Note: Following are all chaplains who have submitted information.

the Assembly of Canonical Orthodox Bishops of North and Central America was established by the Decision of the Fourth Pre-Conciliar Pan-Orthodox Conference that met at the Orthodox Center of the Ecumenical Patriarchate in Chambsy, Switzerland from 6 to 13 June 2009, after the extraordinary Synaxis of all the heads of the Autocephalous Churches convened by his All holiness Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew (October 10 -12, 2008). this Assembly, one of twelve that will be convened around the world in regions where there is no single Orthodox presence, will consist of the active canonical bishops who reside in the region designated as North and Central America. In every Assembly, the chairman will be the senior bishop of the Ecumenical Patriarchate. The Assembly met for the first time under the chairmanship of his Eminence Archbishop Demetrios (as Exarch of the Ecumenical Patriarchate) in May of 2010 (May 26-28). Fifty-five bishops of the region attended the meeting. the Assembly declared itself to be the successor to the Standing Conference of Canonical Orthodox Bishops in the Americas (SCOBA), assuming its agencies, dialogues, and other ministries. the Assembly convened at the helmsley Park lane hotel in New york City where accommodations and arrangements were coordinated by the staff of the Archbishop. the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese, through the Leadership 100 grant to the Office of

Inter-Orthodox, Ecumenical and Interfaith Relations, underwrote most of the expense, with other funds coming from a variety of Pan-Orthodox sources. In discussing the Assembly at the May 7 meeting of the Archdiocesan Council in Atlanta, Archbishop Demetrios explained that the nature of the assembly is as a temporary, not a permanent institution. It is simply preparatory to facilitate the process of Great and holy Council (in the future) that will decide the final form of the existence of the Church in a particular country. the Archbishop further explained that the assembly is to meet annually and is not a continuation of SCOBA. Rather, it works to prepare a plan for dealing with anomalies, such as more than one bishop in a given locale and other things that interfere with the life of the Church. It is also designed to project a unified witness of the faith. What follows is the MESSAGE that came from the first meeting, which was subscribed to by all fifty-five Hierarchs in attendance: MESSAGE We glorify the name of the triune God for gathering us at this first Episcopal Assembly of this region in New york City on May 26-28, 2010 in response to the decisions of the Fourth PreConciliar Pan-Orthodox Conference held at the Orthodox Center of the Ecumenical Patriarchate in Chambsy, Switzerland, from June 6-12, 2009, at the invitation of his All holiness Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew.


asseMbly of CanoniCal oRtHodox bisHoPs of noRtH & CentRal aMeRiCaGathered together in the joy of the Feast of Pentecost, we humbly recognize our calling, in our unworthiness, to serve as instruments and disciples of the Paraclete, who holds together the whole institution of the Church (hymn of Vespers of Pentecost). We honor and express gratitude to the Primates and Representatives of the Orthodox Autocephalous Churches who assembled at the Ecumenical Patriarchate from October 10-12, 2008 to affirm their unswerving position and obligation to safeguard the unity of the Orthodox Church (Chambsy Rules of Operation, Article 5.1a) and emphasized their will and desire for the swift healing of every canonical anomaly that has arisen from historical circumstances and pastoral requirements (Message of the Primates 13.1-2) We call to mind those who envisioned this unity in this region and strove to transcend the canonical irregularities resulting for many reasons, including geographically overlapping jurisdictions. For, just as the lord in the Divine Eucharist is broken and distributed, but not divided (Divine liturgy of St. John Chrysostom), so also his Body comprises many members, while constituting his One Church. We are grateful for the gift of the doctrinal and liturgical unity that we already share, and we are inspired by our leaders, the heads of all the Orthodox Churches throughout the world, who proposed that which we painfully yearn for in this region, i.e., the swift healing of every canonical anomaly (Message of the Primates 13.2). We are also grateful that they established a fundamental process toward a canonical direction and resolution. We are thankful to almighty God for the growth of Orthodoxy, for the preservation of our traditions, and for the influence of our communities in this region. this is indeed a miracle and a mystery. During our gathering, and in accordance with the rules of operation of Episcopal Assemblies promulgated by the Fourth Pan-Orthodox Pre-Conciliar Conference, we established: 1. A registry of canonical bishops (Article 6.1) 2. A committee to determine the canonical status of local communities in the region that have no reference to the Most holy Autocephalous Churches (Article 6.2) 3. A registry of canonical clergy (Article 6.3) 4. Committees to undertake the work of the Assembly, among others including liturgical, pastoral, financial, educational, ecumenical, and legal issues (Articles 11 and 12) 5. A committee to plan for the organization of the Orthodox of the region on a canonical basis (Article 5.1). In addition to the above, we agreed that a directory would be created and maintained by the Assembly of all canonical congregations in our region. We as Episcopal Assembly understand ourselves as being the successors of the Standing Conference of Canonical Orthodox Bishops in the Americas (SCOBA), assuming its agencies, dialogues, and other ministries. Moreover, at the formal request of the hierarchs who have jurisdiction in Canada, the Assembly will submit to the Ecumenical Patriarch, in accordance with the rules of operation (Article 13), a request to partition the present region of North and Central America into two distinct regions of the United States and Canada. Additionally, at the request of the hierarchs who have jurisdiction in Mexico and Central America, the Assembly will likewise request to merge Mexico and Central America with the Assembly of South America. As Orthodox hierarchs in this blessed region, we express our resolve to adhere to and adopt the regulations proposed by the Pan-Orthodox Conferences and approved by the Autocephalous Orthodox Churches, and to do everything in our power by the grace of God to advance actions that facilitate canonical order in our region. We confess our fidelity to the Apostolic Orthodox faith and pledge to promote common action to address the pastoral needs of Orthodox living in our region (Chambsy, Decision 2c). We call upon our clergy and faithful to join us in these efforts to safeguard and contribute to the unity of the Orthodox Church of the region in its theological, ecclesiological, canonical, spiritual, philanthropic, educational and missionary obligations (Article 5.1) as we eagerly anticipate the holy and Great Council. the Assembly concluded with the celebration of the Divine liturgy on Friday, May 28, 2010 at the holy trinity Greek Orthodox Archdiocesan Cathedral in New york City.

The Standing Conference of Canonical Orthodox Bishops in the Americas (SCOBA), established in 1960, brought together the First Hierarchs of most of the Orthodox jurisdictions in America. The purpose of the Conference was to make the ties of unity among the canonical Orthodox Churches stronger and more visible. The hierarchs met twice annually for discussions and decisions on matters of common concern. Various agencies were established to implement the work of SCOBA. Among these are the Orthodox Christian Education Commission (OCEC); International Orthodox Christian Charities (IOCC); the Orthodox Christian Mission Center (OCMC); the Eastern Orthodox Committee on Scouting (EOCS); the Orthodox Christian Fellowships (OCF); the Orthodox Christian Network (OCN), and the Orthodox Christian Prison Ministry (OCPM). His Eminence Archbishop Demetrios of America served as Chairman. His Eminence Metropolitan Philip of the Antiochian Archdiocese was Vice-Chair-

man. The late Metropolitan Christopher of blessed memory (Serbian Archdiocese) was Secretary, and Metropolitan Nicholas of the Carpatho-Russian Orthodox Diocese of the Ecumenical Patriarchate was Treasurer. In addition, the Members of SCOBA included the First Hierarchs of the Representation of the Moscow Patriarchate in the USA, the Romanian Orthodox Archdiocese in America & Canada, the Bulgarian Eastern Orthodox Church, Orthodox Church in America, the Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the USA (Ecumenical Patriarchate), and the Albanian Orthodox Diocese of America (Ecumenical Patriarchate). As of May 2010, the activities of SCOBA have been suspended while the Assembly of Canonical Orthodox Bishops of North and Central America begins assuming the responsibilities, agencies, dialogues, and other ministries that had belonged to SCOBA.


easteRn oRtHodox CoMMittee on sCoUtinG (eoCs)The Eastern Orthodox Committee on Scouting (EOCS) was created in 1960 by the Standing Conference of Orthodox Bishops in the Americas (SCOBA). The mission of EOCS is: Support and conduct the mission of our Lord and His church via the scouting program; Recognize the individual youth member as our most important member; Provide support, programs, and recognition to the scouts and scouters of Eastern Orthodox faith whether in units in the Eastern Orthodox Churches, or registered in units sponsored by other institutions, via the religious youth recognition, adult recognitions for volunteer scouters and clergy, retreats, camp-o-rees, associated events and activities; Provide support, guidance, programs, and consultation to the Eastern Orthodox Churches that sponsor Scouting and are partners in the scouting program; Create, expand, enhance and project a presence of Eastern Orthodox Scouting in the Boy Scouts America, Girl Scouts USA, and Camp Fire Boys and Girls; The EOCS exists to complement and supplement the youths program and the units program. The EOCS does not exist to direct or replace a units program; Encourage the use of the Boy Scouts of America, Girls Scouts USA, and Camp Fire Boys and Girls programs as part of the youth ministry program of the Church and community; Develop and extend our Scouting network with our ministry partners; The EOCS is the officially recognized Eastern Orthodox religious committee for the Boy Scouts of America, Girl Scouts USA, and Camp Fire Boys and Girls programs.

chartered to a religious organization. The Scoutmaster, Troop Leader, Scout Coordinator, and adult volunteers together with the priest should plan a religious program for the Scouts which includes prayers, retreats, and worship services.

Scouting in the Parish Life: Scouting has many objectives that are common with those of our Holy Orthodox Church. As a program devised especially for the formative years of our Orthodox youth, Scouting encourages a better Christian life; it aids in building character and developing wholesome habits and effective citizenship activities. The Scout motto Be Prepared implies not only physical and mental but also spiritual, moral preparedness. Scouting works hand and hand with the Church on all levels. A properly organized and supervised Scout program in a parish can do a great deal in keeping our youth close to the Church and its many varied, wholesome, character building activities; it trains boys and girls to be of service to God, country, and fellowmen all of which constitutes a Christian upbringing. Finally, it trains our boys and girls not only how to be contributing citizens of tomorrow, but also participating members and leaders in our Holy Faith. For these reasons your national committee on Scouting urges all parish priests and interested laymen to learn more about Scouting and organize and sponsor an Orthodox Boy or Girl Scout troop wherever one does not now exist.Religious Awards: The Eastern Orthodox Committee on Scouting supports our youth through an extensive Religious Awards program which is designed around a scouts spiritual life. This gives the scout a chance to work closely with their spiritual Father to earn their award. The unique bond formed at this age is a stepping stone for the rest of their spiritual life.

The committee consists of several priests and adult volunteers. It acts as a liaison between the Eastern Orthodox Church and the Boy Scouts of America and the Girl Scouts of the U.S.A. The Eastern Orthodox Committee on Scouting (EOCS) publishes various forms of literature, honors and awards, promotes Orthodox Scouting, informs the Orthodox Clergy on the services of Scouting, and keeps those in Orthodox Scouting up-to-date on current progress. It also establishes procedures and coordinates the Orthodox Scouting program in America as well as being the official recognized representative for the Eastern Orthodox Churches by both the Boy & Girl Scouts nationally.

Orthodox Church-Scouting Relationship: The twelfth Boy Scout Law states, A Scout is reverent, He is reverent to God, He is faithful in his religious duties and respects the convictions of others in matters of custom and religion. Consequently, a religious program that allows the Scout to practice his/her religious beliefs should be included as a regular part of the Scouting program if the Scouting unit is

Founded in 1992 as the

official humanitarian aid agency of the Standing Conference of Canonical Orthodox Bishops in the Americas (SCOBA), IOCC has implemented over $330 million in emergency relief and long term development programs in more than 33 countries.

IOCC is a pan Orthodox agency that works in cooperation with the Orthodox Church worldwide, as well as with local organizations and local government, to provide humanitarian aid to those affected by man-made and natural disasters. All assistance given by IOCC is provided solely on the basis of need without regard to creed, color or national origin. In 2010, IOCC launched relief and recovery projects following the devastating earthquake in Haiti. With support from Orthodox Christians, including the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese and the Greek Orthodox Ladies Philoptochos Society, IOCC provided $4 million in life-saving medical assistance, water purification equipment, repaired and reconstructed schools, and provided sustainable power and renewable natural resources to vulnerable quake-affected communities. IOCC also responded with assistance following the historic heat wave and fires in Russia and provided medical aid to one of the largest natural disasters that left as much as a fifth of Pakistan flooded and more than 20 million people displaced from their homes. IOCC remained active throughout the Middle East, including a project to provide broad support for schools in Lebanon and the extension of a highly successful program to provide vocational training and school tuition to Iraqi refugees living in Syria. IOCC continued its program to prevent the spread of HIV/AIDS in Ethiopia in partnership with the Ethiopian Orthodox Church and expanded projects in other parts of Africa, including a project to address podoconiosis, a debilitating disease disproportionately affecting the poor. In the U.S., IOCC continued to provide support for educational initiatives serving tens of thousands of children living in underserved communities in more than 20 states.A woman fastens poles for rafters together with strips of cloth as she builds a temporary home in a camp for quake survivors north of Port-au-Prince, Haiti.

oRtHodox CHRistian PRison MinistRy (oCPM)Remember those who are in prison, as though you were in prison with them; those who suffer evil, as though you yourselves were suffering... Hebrews 13:3 Patrick Tutella, Chaplain Executive Director, OCPM P.O. Box 468 Fleetwood, PA 19522-0468 Email: Web: Office: 610-777-1552 Mobile: 610-451-0339

Did you know? Through 2009, Orthodox Christian Prison Ministry (OCPM) has ministered to more than 1000 people in prison and former people in prison, many of whom have embraced the Orthodox faith. OCPM is currently ministering to more than 250 Orthodox catechumens in prisons across America. Many of the prisoners with whom OCPM has worked have been released from prison and are now living productive, Christ-centered lives as active members of their local parishes. OCPM has published eight books, more than 1,000,000 copies of which have been distributed in prisons. OCPM prints and has distributed more than 2,000,000 icon prayer cards to people in prison. OCPM ministers monthly to more than 200 homeless or needy former people in prison, as well as the spouses and children of current people in prison. OCPM receives hundreds of letters each month from people in prison seeking direction and help. Prayerfully, each letter is personally answered, offering these men and women spiritual guidance and hope in an environment where these things are almost completely absent. Many of these people in prison receive no other personal mail. OCPM writes more than 5,000 personal letters to people in prison every year. Through the work of OCPM, five men have been tonsured Orthodox monks in prison, and several people in prison have become iconographers.

Our visionTo bring the light of Christ to those who are in prison in North America by providing encouragement, material support, transition and reintegration services, Christian education, spiritual guidance and the sacramental life of the Church to people in prison and their families.

Current and Future Programs Include: Development of a seminary-level prison ministry curriculum similar to the one currently in place at St. Tikhons Orthodox Theological Seminary, and the encouragement of prison chaplaincy as a priestly vocation. Development of a certifying body for Orthodox prison workers. Development of a parish training program to facilitate the creation of parish-level prison ministries all over North America. The continued publication and distribution of Orthodox materials for people in prison and prison workers. Organization of Orthodox in-prison retreats. Provision of mental health and substance abuse counseling to people in prison. Maintenance and growth of weekly people in prison correspondence program. Maintenance and growth of Aftercare program. Ministry to the material and spiritual needs of people in prison families. Aggressive lobbying for the recognition of the Orthodox Faith in every prison. (Currently, the Orthodox Church is recognized in only a few institutions, and is not recognized in the federal prison system at all.) Provision of a convenient source of materials and networking opportunities for Orthodox prison workers throughout North America.167

viCaRiate foR Palestinian/joRdanian CHRistian oRtHodox CoMMUnities in tHe UsaAfter a long process that began in 1993, related to the ecclesiastical status of a portion of the Palestinian and Jordanian communities in the USA (the portion connected to the Patriarchate of Jerusalem), there was a final agreed decision by the Ecumenical Patriarchate of Constantinople and the Patriarchate of Jerusalem concerning these communities. The Ecumenical Patriarchate and the Jerusalem Patriarchate agreed that the canonical and pastoral supervision of these communities and their clergy would belong to the canonically established jurisdiction in the United States which is the Eparchy of the Ecumenical Throne in America, that is, the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America. The agreement was signed in Jerusalem on February 28, 2007. Archbishop Demetrios of America was the senior representative for the Ecumenical Patriarchate and signed on its behalf. The process of implementation continued through 2008, when His All Holiness Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew and His Beatitude Patriarch Theophilos III of Jerusalem met at the Ecumenical Patriarchate and concluded final details, including the creation of the Vicariate for Palestinian/Jordanian Christian Orthodox Communities in the USA. Following the meeting at the Phanar, His Eminence Archbishop Demetrios of America was directed to proceed with the implementation of the agreements by the creation of a Vicariate for the clergy and communities within the Archdiocese of America. The clergy and communities of the Vicariate will be directly under the Archbishop of America and will report to the Archdiocese through the Archiepiscopal Vicar.

The Institute was incorporated as an Affiliate Member of the Graduate Theological Union in Berkeley, California ( in 1981, under the leadership of (then) Bishop Anthony of San Francisco and The Very Reverend Dr. Leonidas Contos. In 1987 the Alexander G. Spanos Chair of Eastern Orthodox Christian Studies was established through a generous donation by Alexander and Faye Spanos. Today the PAOI continues its educational mission within the context of the GTU, an ecumenical and interfaith consortium of nine seminaries and ten academic centers, programs, and affiliates. The GTU is the largest partnership of seminaries and graduate schools in the USA, boasting the largest theological faculty in the country. The Institute offers several courses each semester treating aspects of the history and theology of the Orthodox Church. In 2005 the Institute inaugurated a Master of Arts in Orthodox Christian Studies program in conjunction with the GTU. The PAOIs extensive collection of books is housed in the Flora Lamson Hewlett Library and is accessible to scholars through interlibrary loan. The Institute ministers to the spiritual and social needs of undergraduate students at the University of California, Berkeley, and other colleges and universities in the area by hosting weekly meetings of the Orthodox Campus Fellowship. Every Tuesday evening students gather at the PAOI for Divine Liturgy at 6 PM followed by a hearty dinner. The evening concludes with an engaging discussion of issues relevant to students lives, integrating Orthodox Christian perspectives. The PAOI is an independent, inter-Orthodox center governed by a pan-Orthodox Board of Trustees representing the diversity of Orthodoxy in America: Albanian, Antiochian, Bulgarian, Carpatho-Russian, Greek, OCA, Romanian, Serbian and Ukrainian. In recognition of the Institutes particular vision and mission, the Holy and Sacred Synod of the Ecumenical Patriarchate of Constantinople, designated the Institute as patriarchal the only center of learning in the United States with this distinction.Metropolitan Nikitas (Lulias), Director William Zimmerman, Administrative Managerpaoi@ John Klentos, Ph.D., Associate Professor in Eastern Orthodox Studies, Graduate Theological Union V.

Since 1988, Project Mexico has involved young people in the alleviation of suffering through building homes for Mexicos poor in the Tijuana area. Over 9,000 volunteers from 49 states and eleven foreign countries have helped Project Mexico build more than 175 homes for families who often live in dirt-floor shacks covered only with tin or cardboard. St. Innocent Orthodox Orphanage, an outgrowth of Project Mexico, opened its doors in 1996 to provide a loving and caring home to orphaned, abandoned and abused teenaged boys. An award-winning institution, it is the only facility dedicated to teenaged boys in Tijuana and one of only four in Mexico. Project Mexico and St. Innocent Orphanage have been envisioned, designed, built and operated by the combined efforts of Orthodox from all jurisdictions. They operate under the blessings of The Standing Conference of Canonical Orthodox Bishops in the Americas (SCOBA). There is still a great deal of work to be done! Learn about the many ways you can be a part of this exciting ministry. Visit or call 619.426.4610.

tHe CalendaR of tHe oRtHodox CHURCHLewis Patsavos, Ph.D. Professor of Canon law holy Cross School of theologyORTHODOX EASTERthe determination of the date of Easter is governed by a computation based on the vernal equinox and the phase of the moon. According to the ruling of the First Ecumenical Synod in 325, Easter Sunday should fall on the Sunday which follows the first full moon after the vernal equinox. If the full moon happens to fall on a Sunday, Easter is observed the following Sunday. the day taken to be the invariable date of the vernal equinox is March 21. Herein lies the first difference in the determination of Easter between the Orthodox Church and the other Christian Churches. the Orthodox Church continues to base its calculations for the date of Easter on the Julian Calendar, which was in use at the time of the First Ecumenical Synod. As such, it does not take into consideration the number of days which have since then accrued due to the progressive inaccuracy of the Julian Calendar. In other words, a difference of 13 days exists between the accepted date for the vernal equinox then and now. In the West, this discrepancy was addressed in the 16th century through the adoption of the Gregorian Calendar, which adjusted the Julian Calendar still in use by all Christians at that time. the other difference in the determination of Easter between the Orthodox and other Christian Churches concerns the date of Passover. Jews originally celebrated Passover on the first full moon following the vernal equinox. Christians, therefore, celebrated Easter on the first Sunday after the first full moon following the vernal equinox. After the destruction of Jerusalem in 70 A.D. and the other tragic events which gave rise to the dispersal of the Jews, Passover sometimes preceded the vernal equinox. this was occasioned by the dependence of the dispersed Jews upon local pagan calendars for the calculation of Passover. As a consequence, most Christians eventually ceased to regulate the observance of Easter by the Jewish Passover. their purpose, of course, was to preserve the original practice of celebrating Easter following the vernal equinox.

Rev. Dr. Stanley S. Harakas Archbishop Iakovos Professor of Orthodox Theology, Emeritus, Holy Cross Greek Orthodox School of TheologyThe Sanctity of Human LifeA major and overarching concern of the Church arises with its commitment to the God-given sanctity of human life. Some of the developments of the biological manipulation of human life, though promising and amazing therapeutic achievements, may also be understood as undermining respect for the integrity of human existence. Others may be seen as providing new means of healing human illness. Discerning the difference is the challenge the Church faces in developing its teaching on these newly appearing issues. or if surviving relatives permit it providing that it was in harmony with the desires of the deceased. Such actions can be approved as an expression of love and the self-determination of the donor. In all cases, respect for the body of the donor should be maintained. Organ transplants should never be commercialized nor coerced nor take place without proper consent, nor place in jeopardy the identity of the donor or recipient, through, for example, the use of animal organs. the death of the donor should never be hastened in order to harvest organs for transplantation to another person.

Human Lifethe Churchs teaching about human life is based on holy tradition, including the Scriptures as a primary resource and the ongoing teaching and interpretation of the Orthodox Faith. life is a gift of God in the formation of the created world. All life is precious, but human life is uniquely created by God in the image and likeness of God. human life as such deserves deep respect and individual human beings are to be treated in accordance with their inherent human dignity. thus, racism, unjust prejudicial treatment of men and women, genocide, forms of sexual exploitation, domestic violence, child abuse, rape, theft or destruction of private property, deceptions and deceit, environmental plunder and other such unethical behaviors violate the human dignity of others. human life as a gift of God should be respected. Some specific issues are the following:

CremationBecause the Orthodox Faith affirms the fundamental goodness of creation, it understands the body to be an integral part of the human person and the temple of the holy Spirit, and expects the resurrection of the dead. the Church considers cremation to be the deliberate desecration and destruction of what God has made and ordained for us. the Church instead insists that the body be buried so that the natural physical process of decomposition may take place. the Church does not grant funerals, either in the sanctuary, or at the funeral home, or at any other place, to persons who have chosen to be cremated. Additionally, memorial services with kolyva (boiled wheat) are not allowed in such instances, inasmuch as the similarity between the kernel of wheat and the body has been intentionally destroyed.

Donation of Organs

Medical Developments and the ChurchWith high frequency, new developments in the area of the life sciences appear in our technologically advanced culture. the Church welcomes efforts and innovations that contribute to the healing of human diseases. yet, many of these advances raise moral questions. Some of the Churchs responses to these developments are based on older issues for which the Church has clear and unambiguous guidelines. Other responses are not so evident.

Although nothing in the Orthodox tradition requires the faithful to donate their organs to others, nevertheless, this practice may be considered an act of love, and as such is encouraged. the decision to donate a duplicate organ, such as a kidney, while the donor is living, requires much consideration and should be made in consultation with medical professionals and ones Spiritual Father. the donation of an organ from a deceased person is also an act of love that offers the recipient a longer, fuller life. Such donations are acceptable thus, many of these developments pose chalif the deceased donor had willed such action, lenges to Orthodox Christian spiritual concerns261

PastoRal GUidelinesand moral values. In numerous cases, the Church is still in the process of clarifying its response. the following serve to indicate the general positions and direction of thought in the Orthodox Church: abortion. those who perform abortions and those who seek them are committing an immoral deed, and are called to repentance.

SuicideSuicide, the taking of ones own life, is self-murder and as such, a sin. More importantly, it may be evidence of a lack of faith in our loving, forgiving, sustaining God. If a person has committed suicide as a result of a belief that such an action is rationally or ethically defensible, the Orthodox Church denies that person a Church funeral, because such beliefs and actions separate a person from the community of faith. the Church shows compassion, however, on those who have taken their own life as a result of mental illness or severe emotional stress, when a condition of impaired rationality can be verified by a physician.

Sexualitythe Orthodox Church recognizes marriage as the only moral and spiritually appropriate context for sexual relations. thus, all other forms of sexual activity such as fornication, adultery, homo sexuality, lesbianism, pornography, all forms of prostitution, and similar forms of behavior are sins and as such are inappropriate for the Orthodox Christian. Marriage is only conducted and recognized in the Orthodox Church as taking place between a man and a woman. Samesex marriages are a contradiction in terms. the Orthodox Church does not allow for same-sex marriages.

AutopsyWhen a person dies for reasons that are uncertain, a qualified medical examiner may, with the permission of the next of kin, perform an autopsy to determine the cause of death. In some states, this is required by law. In all cases, however, the Orthodox Church expects that the body of the deceased be treated with respect and dignity.

Abortionthe Church from the very beginning of existence has sought to protect the life in the womb and has considered abortion as a form of murder in its theology and canons. Orthodox Christians are admonished not to encourage women to have abortions, nor to assist in the committing of

PastoRal GUidelinesINSTRUCTIONS for WEDDINGS, DIVORCES, BAPTISMS, FUNERALS and MEMORIALS ried, has not had his or her marriage blessed WEDDINGSFor the union of a man and woman to be recognized as sacramentally valid by the Orthodox Church, the following conditions must be met: 1. the Sacrament of Matrimony must be celebrated by an Orthodox Priest of a canonical Orthodox jurisdiction, according to the liturgical tradition of the Orthodox Church, in a canonical Orthodox Church, and with the authorization of the Archbishop or Metropolitan. 2. Before requesting permission from the Archbishop or his Metropolitan to perform the marriage, a Priest must verify that: a) neither of the parties in question is already married to another person, either in this country or elsewhere; b) the parties in question are not related to each other to a degree that would constitute an impediment; c) if either or both parties are widowed, they have presented the death certificate(s) of the deceased spouse(s); d) if either or both of the parties have been previously married in the Orthodox Church, they have obtained ecclesiastical as well as civil divorce(s); e) the party or parties who are members of a parish other than the one in which the marriage is to be performed have provided a certificate declaring them to be members in good standing with that parish for the current year; and f) a civil marriage license has been obtained from civil authorities. 3. No person may marry more than three times in the Church, with permission for a third marriage granted only with extreme oikonomia. 4. In cases involving the marriage of Orthodox and non-Orthodox Christians, the latter must have been baptized, in water, in the Name of the Father and the Son and the holy Spirit. the Church cannot bless the marriage of an Orthodox Christian to a non-Christian. 5. the Sponsor (koumbaros or koumbara) must provide a current certificate of membership proving him or her to be an Orthodox Christian in good standing with the Church. A person who does not belong to a parish, or who belongs to a parish under the jurisdiction of a bishop who is not in communion with the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese, or who, if marby the Orthodox Church, or, if divorced, has not received an ecclesiastical divorce, cannot be a sponsor. Non-Orthodox persons may be members of the wedding party, but may not exchange the rings or crowns.

Days When Marriage Is Not PermittedMarriages are not performed on fast days or during fasting seasons or on the feasts of the Church, specifically: September 14 (Exaltation of the holy Cross), December 13-25 (Nativity), January 5 and 6 (theophany), Great lent and holy Week, Pascha (Easter), Pentecost, August 1-15 (Dormition Fast and Feast), and August 29 (Beheading of St. John the Baptist). Exceptions can only be made with the permission of the respective hierarch.

Inter-Christian MarriagesIt is a fact that, the more a couple has in common, the more likely they are to live together in peace and concord. Shared faith and traditions spare couples and their children, as well as their extended families, many serious problems, and help to strengthen the bonds between them. Even so, the Orthodox Church will bless marriages between Orthodox and non-Orthodox partners, provided that: 1. the non-Orthodox partner is a Christian who has been baptized, in water, in the Name of the Father and the Son and the holy Spirit; and 2. the couple should be willing to baptize their children in the Orthodox Church and raise and nurture them in accordance with the Orthodox Faith. A baptized Orthodox Christian whose wedding has not been blessed by the Orthodox Church is no longer in good standing with the Church, and may not receive the Sacraments of the Church, including holy Communion, or become a Sponsor of an Orthodox Marriage, Baptism or Chrismation. A non-Orthodox Christian who marries an Orthodox Christian does not thereby become a member of the Orthodox Church, and may not 263

PastoRal GUidelinesreceive the Sacraments, including holy Communion, or be buried by the Church, serve on the Parish Council, or vote in parish assemblies or elections. to participate in the Churchs life, one must be received into the Church by the Sacrament of Baptism or, in the case of persons baptized with water in the holy trinity, following a period of instruction, by Chrismation. 4. First cousins with each other. 5. Foster parents with foster children or foster children with the children of foster parents. 6. Godparents with godchildren or godparents with the parents of their godchildren.

DIVORCEthe parish priest must exert every effort to reconcile the couple and avert a divorce. however, should he fail to bring about a reconciliation, after a civil divorce has been obtained, he will transmit the petition of the party seeking the ecclesiastical divorce, together with the decree of the civil divorce, to the Spiritual Court of the Archdiocesan District or Metropolis. the petition must include the names and surnames of the husband and wife, the wifes surname prior to marriage, their addresses, the name of the priest who performed the wedding, and the date and place of the wedding. the petitioner must be a member of the parish through which he or she is petitioning for divorce. Orthodox Christians of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese who have obtained a civil divorce but not an ecclesiastical divorce may not participate in any sacraments of the Church or serve on the Parish Council, Archdiocesan District Council, Metropolis Council or Archdiocesan Council until they have been granted a divorce by the Church.

Inter-religious MarriagesCanonical and theological reasons preclude the Orthodox Church from performing the Sacrament of Marriage for couples where one partner is Orthodox and the other partner is a non-Christian. As such, Orthodox Christians choosing to enter such marriages fall out of good standing with their Church and are unable to actively participate in the life of the Church. While this stance may seem confusing and rigid, it is guided by the Orthodox Churchs love and concern for its members religious and spiritual well-being.

Prohibited Marriagesthe following types of relationships constitute impediments to marriage: 1. Parents with their own children, grandchildren or great-grandchildren, or godchildren of the same godparents. 2. Brothers-in-law and sisters-in-law. 3. Uncles and aunts with nieces and nephews.

PastoRal GUidelinesBAPTISMSA person who wishes to sponsor a candidate for Baptism or Chrismation must be an Orthodox Christian in good standing and a supporting member of an Orthodox parish. A person may not serve as a godparent if the Church has not blessed his or her marriage or, if civilly divorced, he or she has not been granted an ecclesiastical divorce, or for any other reason he or she is not in communion with the Orthodox Church. Baptisms may not be performed from Christmas Day through the Feast of theophany (December 25-January 6), during holy Week, or on any of the Great Feastdays of the lord. 3. Cheesefare Week (the last week before the Great Lent, during which meat and fish are prohibited, but dairy products are permitted even on Wednesday and Friday); 4. Great lent (from Clean Monday through the Friday before lazarus Saturday, olive oil and wine are permitted on weekends); 5. Great and holy Week (note that Great and holy Saturday is a day of strict fasting, during which the faithful abstain from olive oil and wine), 6. holy Apostles Fast (from the Monday after All Saints Day through June 28, inclusive); 7. Fast for the Dormition of the Mother of God (August 1-14, excluding August 6, on which fish, wine and olive oil are permitted); 8. Beheading of St. John the Baptist (August 29), 9. Exaltation of the holy Cross (September 14); and 10. Nativity lent (November 15-December 24, although fish, wine and olive oil are permitted, except on Wednesdays and Fridays, until December 17). the following are fasting days on which fish, wine and olive oil are permitted: 1. the Feast of the Annunciation (March 25, unless it falls outside the Great lent, in which case all foods are permitted); 2. Palm Sunday; 3. The Feast of the Transfiguration (August 6); and 4. the Feast of the Entry into the temple of the Mother of God (November 21). On the following days, all foods are permitted: 1. the first week of the triodion, from the Sunday of the Publican and the Pharisee through the Sunday of the Prodigal Son, including Wednesday and Friday; 2. Diakainisimos (or Bright) Week, following the Sunday of Pascha, 3. the week following Pentecost; and 4. From the Feast of the Nativity of the lord (December 25) through January 4.265

FUNERALSFuneral services are permitted on any day of the year, except for Sundays and holy Friday, unless permission is granted by the Archbishop or Metropolitan.

MEMORIALSMemorial services may not be chanted from the Saturday of lazarus through the Sunday of thomas, on any Feastday of the lord or any Feastday of the theotokos.

FASTINGJust as there are times for feasting, there are also times set aside for fasting. During these periods, certain foods are prohibited. these are, in order of frequency of prohibition, meat (including poultry), dairy products, fish, olive oil and wine. Fruits, vegetables, grains and shellfish are permitted throughout the year. Of course, the Orthodox Church never reduces the practice of fasting to a legalistic observance of dietary rules. Fasting, that is not accompanied by intensified prayer and acts of charity, inevitably becomes a source of pride. the Church also recognizes that not everyone can fast to the same degree, and assumes that individual Christians will observe the fast prescribed for them by their Spiritual Fathers. the following are fasting days and seasons: 1. All Wednesdays and Fridays, except for those noted below; 2. the day before the Feast of theophany (January 5);

sexUal MisCondUCt PoliCy GUidelinesPOLICY ON SEXUAL MISCONDUCT BY CLERGY Sexual misconduct by clergy has devastating consequences, not only for the individuals involved, but for their communities as well. the holy Eparchial Synod of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America regards this matter with extreme seriousness, and has adapted a national policy on the investigation and resolution of complaints of sexual misconduct by clergy, as well as to promote healing for the victims of misconduct. this policy includes a carefully planned procedure designed to ensure that allegations of sexual misconduct by clergy are taken seriously, investigated thoroughly, and adjudicated justly. Responsibility for administering the process is assigned to the Chancellor of the Archdiocese. the Archdiocese also cooperates with applicable civil authorities when the charge involves a minor. to assist in the investigation process, a tel ephone hotline (877) 554-3382 has been established to answer questions regarding the policy and to accept complaints relating to sexual misconduct by clergy. All calls with questions or complaints will be taken seriously and allegations will be investigated fully and impartially. Callers can ask to speak with either a male or female volunteer, in either Greek or English. Calls may also be made directly to the Archdiocesan Chancellors Office, (212) 5703513. Persons staffing the hotline are all lay volunteers and come from a variety of backgrounds including psychology, social work and human re sources. hotline staffers attempt to return calls as quickly as possible, and generally within 48 hours. the Churchs policy was developed by working groups that included hierarchs, clergy, lay leaders, lawyers and clinical and academic experts. the policy is also evaluated periodically by an advisory board. the full text of the policy is available upon request from the Chancellors Office or online at

2010 marked the 9th year that the parishioners of St. Nicholas Church in downtown Manhattan have had to hold the Feastday Celebration without a Church building. Significant media attention has been given to the tiny church, the only house of worship destroyed on 9-11, and the determination to rebuild despite the many roadblocks faced.
