Momentum builds to unify Orthodox church, 23 Oct 2001 [cached]
Orthodoxy has been in America literally for 200 years , since it first came to Alaska , and we've had a strong presence here for 100 years , said Peter Marudas , spokesman for the lay organization , who is also a former chief of staff for Sen.
The momentum is clearly beginning to build for a unified , self-governing Orthodox church in the United States , said Marudas , adding that his group already has raised $110 , 000 toward the $1 million goal.
Orthodox push for single church -- The Washington Times, 20 Oct 2001 [cached]
We believe Orthodoxy in America is mature enough to be self-governing , without cutting spiritual ties to its roots abroad , said Peter Marudas , an OCL board member and former chief of staff for Sen.
Now , with the Antiochians firmly on the record , we feel the opportunity to energize the other Orthodox jurisdictions , particularly the Greek Orthodox , Mr. Marudas said.Archbishop Demetrios , the new leader of the United States' largest Greek Orthodox archdiocese , has rejected the idea of a United Orthodoxy in America , except for a pan-Orthodox bishops' council , of which he already is chairman.If some of the awkward political , ethnic and financial burdens could be lifted from Greek Orthodox believers in the United States , Mr. Marudas said , the church could evangelize in America and address crisis levels of young people marrying outside the tradition.We think this could be the moment for Orthodoxy in America , he said.The U.S. church that has Russian roots , the Orthodox Church in America , gained self-governance in 1970 , though it honors its ties to the Moscow Patriarchate , seat of the senior spiritual leader , and Russian culture.The Greek church , however , has always been closely supervised by the Greek Ecumenical Patriarch , who is stationed in Istanbul , and the church hierarchy in Greece.An attempt for a unified American Orthodox church was made in 1995 , but it was seen mostly as the former U.S. Greek church leader's effort to position himself to be the next ecumenical patriarch , who is called the first among equals in world Orthodoxy.Archbishop Demetrios and his top counselors now are considering a new charter for how the church will operate in the United States and in its relationship to Istanbul and Athens.The laity group , however , worries that discussion of the new governance is not taking place openly , though the charter report is due next summer , before the Greek church's clergy-laity conference.We don't really know what is in the charter , said Mr. Marudas , who said it may weaken the governing role of nonclergy.Meanwhile , he said , the Chicago meeting will plan for an educational push among the U.S. Orthodox jurisdictions - Greek , Romanian , Bulgarian , Ukrainian , Antiochian , Serbian , Russian - for consensus on a united church.In 10 years , the whole situation here will be different in Orthodoxy.There's a growing consciousness , he said.
