Syriac-Greek Antiochian Orthodox Catholic Church - Rankings by Area (States) [Counties] [Metro-Areas]
The Syriac-Greek Antiochian Orthodox Catholic Church has its origins in what was previously known as the American Orthodox Catholic Archdiocese. Originally formed in 1892, it was one of the first Orthodox Church bodies in America to offer the Divine Liturgy and other worship services in the English language. During the following decades, the worship practices of this Church were affected both by the Syrian Orthodox (i.e., Oriental Orthodox) as well as Russian and Greek Orthodox (i.e., Eastern Orthodox) traditions. Later, the church also operated under the name Syro-Russian Orthodox Catholic Church. The current name was adopted in 2008. This was done with the intention to better describe the origins of this Church: both the Syriac (“Oriental”) and Greek (“Eastern”) Orthodox Patriarchates of Antioch. Also, in 2008, the Synod of Bishops voted unanimously to return to the original mandate of this Church: to be an American Orthodox Church which uses a Western-style Liturgy.
