NEW YORK – The 2016 Yearbook of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America is dedicated to His All-Holiness Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew on the occasion of the 25th Anniversary of His Enthronement as Ecumenical Patriarch.
The book is now available online at www.goarch.org/archdiocese/yearbook. The Yearbook can also be downloaded from the website as a pdf and used as a digital book on tablets, smartphones and other digital reading devices.
Hard copies of the 2016 Yearbook will be available by mail by the end of January. Please note that every parish of the Archdiocese will receive two complimentary copies in January.
The Yearbook is designed as an easy-to-read, accurate, reference handbook of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America. The new edition includes updated directories of the Ecumenical Patriarchate, Archdiocesan departments and institutions, Metropolises, parishes, clergy, religious and secular media resources plus additional information.
The significance of this year’s book is highlighted in the letter by His Eminence Archbishop Demetrios, Primate of the Greek Orthodox Church in America, where he states: “His All-Holiness has provided spiritual guidance from a foundation of deep faith in God and a commitment to His will. He has offered compassionate pastoral leadership from his experience and understanding of the power of the grace of God. We dedicate this Yearbook to His All Holiness in recognition of the contribution his leadership has made to the vitality and witness of our Holy Archdiocese. As with previous editions over the last few decades, this Yearbook represents a tremendous growth at all levels of our Greek Orthodox Church in America. Parishes continue to grow with additions of new missions each year. Our range of national ministries and work in the Metropolises has expanded. Resources for the work of the ministries and the vital work of clergy and laity in the parishes have grown impressively.”
