Welcome to St. George Greek Orthodox Church on Cape Cod!
I am pleased that you are visiting our site. There are about 3 million Orthodox in North America and approximately 200 million in the world, making Orthodoxy the second-largest Christian community. Being Greek is not a requirement to be Greek Orthodox, just as someone can be Roman Catholic without being Roman. Because only Greek was spoken for approximately the first 300 years in the Christian church, the original church was sometimes referred to as the Greek church.
It is the rule of the Orthodox Church to speak the language of the local people, therefore at Saint George we speak English and Greek. In recent years, as we have some Romanians, Russians, Ukranians, and Serbians among us, we use some church Slavonic to make people feel welcome to worship with us. Currently the largest American jurisdictions are the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese, The Orthodox Church in America (Russian roots), and the Antiochian Archdiocese (Arabic roots). The liturgy is substantially the same in all, though there may be variation in language used and type of music. If you choose to visit our church and this is your first time, please let yourself be known to one of our parish council members who will be at the Pangari. In Christ's love, Rev. Father Panagiotis K. Giannakopoulos Protopresbyter
