Greek Orthodox parish in US quits Constantinople to join Russian Church over Ukrainian schism

The US branch of the Constantinople Patriarchate is at risk of a split after self-rule was granted to Ukrainian schismatics, a Russian priest in Texas said. One Greek parish has already quit and joined the Russian Church.

The believers in the US reacted “quite differently” to the January move by Constantinople Patriarch Bartholomew to grant Ukraine’s request for its own Orthodox Church independent of Moscow, Archpriest John Whiteford of the Russian Orthodox Church Abroad said.
