After my death our beloved Church abroad will break three ways ... first the Greeks will leave us as they were never a part of us ... then those who live for this world and its glory will go to Moscow ... what will remain will be those souls faithful to Christ and His Church. ~St. Philaret of NY


New Book: Metropolitan Petros of Astoria

It is with great pleasure that I announce the availability of my book, "Metropolitan Petros of Astoria: A Microcosm of the Old Calendar Movement in America."   This work examines the ecclesiastical life of Metropolitan Petros (Astyfides), the founder of St. Markella's Cathedral in Astoria, New York.  

Metropolitan Petros of Astoria: A Microcosm of the Old Calendar Movement In America
By Anastasios Hudson

This work examines the career of Metropolitan Petros (Astyfides) of Astoria (1915-1997), the founder of St. Markella’s Cathedral and first bishop of the Church of the Genuine Orthodox Christians of America (also known as the Greek Old Calendarist Church). Metropolitan Petros’s life spans the entire history of the Old Calendar movement and many of its major challenges, crises, and turning-points are reflected in his life. Therefore, he represents a microcosm of the movement, and study of his life sheds light on the Old Calendar movement in general.
