1932 constitution[edit]

I'm currently working on St. Demetrios Greek Orthodox Church (Seattle). I gather that there was some serious disagreement about adopting the Archdiocesan constitution in 1932. I came here hoping to get some insight into that; it isn't even mentioned.

If someone knows where I might find more about this, please "ping" my user talk page, because I'm really not maintaining a watchlist these days. - Jmabel | Talk 04:08, 26 September 2007 (UTC)

an eparch of the EP[edit]

I know this is what the website of the GOARCH says, but according to the wiki article 'eparchy' that this article links to, 'an eparchy is the jurisdiction of a bishop, corresponding to what in the West is called a diocese.' Is the word 'eparchy' correct in describing the GOARCH? or is the article 'eparchy' wrong? thanks 99.224.220.52 19:40, 1 December 2007 (UTC)

southern greeks[edit]

i don't see it in here anywhere, but the greek communities in the south are older than those in the north. there is mention in the article about the oldest community being founded in 1896 in new york, but the greek communities in florida, alabama, and louisiana are all older than that and certainly didn't just vanish between their first immigrant's arriving and modern times. we have greek orthodox marriage and baptismal records from my wife's family in birmingham, alabama that date from the late 1800's-early 1900's and the community there was not the oldest, by far. the new york greek community seems to have been a somewhat later development. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 74.4.76.57 (talk) 16:50, 10 July 2010 (UTC)
