Orthodox Church built in the ancient style in Owego, NY

Stone masons build an Orthodox Church in the ancient style, block by block.

Comments

  1. The video mentions in passing something about discomfort with the MP. What does that mean in regards to the jurisdiction of the chapel? I sure hope they are not schismatic!

  2. Spoke too soon. They are GOC. Now the question: is GOC in with HOCNA and Oropos & Fili?

  3. Fr. Johannes Jacobse :

    Looks like they might be. Still, a nice church.

  4. The GOC is not with Metropolian Cyprianos of Oropos and Fili nor with HOCNA, although we maintain good relations with them. We are under His Beatitude Archbishop Chrysostomos II (Kiousis) and our diocesan bishop is His Eminence Metropolitan Pavlos.

    Fr Thomas, the priest in charge of the parish, was given a release from Met. Laurus to join the GOC around the time of the ROCOR-MP reunion.

    In Christ,

    Fr Anastasios Hudson
    St Mark Orthodox Mission
    Raleigh, NC

  5. Dear Fr. Anastasios,

    Re: “we are under His Beatitude Archbishop Chrysostomos II (Kiousis) and our diocesan bishop is His Eminence Metropolitan Pavlos.”

    Perhaps you could save some of us the google search and explain who these bishops are affiliated with?

    Thanks in advance,
    Dean Calvert

    It is a nice church, it similar to some of the churches I seen in the early to mid Byzantine period.
