In 2007, at an Orthodox Conference on Ecumenism at the University of Chicago, Fr. Maximos Marretta (now Bishop Maximos of Pelagonia) took up the challenge of demonstrating that the New Calendarist, and the Ecumenist Orthodox churches, even though they contain pseudo-traditionalist movements such as that of Elder Ephraim of Arizona, have officially accepted heretical teachings. NOTE: a transcript of the essay presented by Fr. Maximos can be found here: http://www.hotca.org/orthodoxy/orthodox-awareness/78-the-problem-of-conservative-new-calendarism Another of his essays on the subject of Ecumenism: http://www.hotca.org/orthodoxy/orthodox-awareness/236-why-the-true-orthodox-are-truly-orthodox

THE FIRST JIHAD or How A Few Greek Christians Saved The U.S. Marines.

In 1805 America fought in her first war since independence. That America prevailed was due in great part to the 38 Greek Orthodox Christians who fought side by side with the United States Marine Corps against the terrorists of north Africa. This is their story...

Metropolitan Petros of Astoria (1915-1997) was the founder of St. Markella’s Cathedral in Astoria, New York, and is considered the founder of Traditionalist Greek Orthodox Christianity, and monasticism in America.

In his lifetime, he was a member of the Church of the Genuine Orthodox Christians of Greece as an Archimandrite, then fell in with a group of vagante pseudo-Old Calendarists, and was taken in by the Metropolia (forerunner of the Orthodox Church in America [OCA]), was consecrated a bishop by the Russian Orthodox Church Outside Russia, and became a member of the Synod of Bishops of the Church of the GOC of Greece.

During his forty-seven years in America (thirty-five years as bishop,) he founded and pastored St. Markella’s Cathedral, and oversaw other parishes in New York, Chicago, Detroit, Florida, and Montreal. He remained firmly at the helm of the diocese until his final days. He is therefore of great interest to those concerned with genuine Orthodox Christianity, and to those interested in the building of a Greek Orthodox parish from scratch in an immigrant community, and who have an interest in Greek Old Calendarist relations with the Russian Orthodox Church Outside Russia (ROCOR), among other things.
