we sometimes used to go to St. Markella’s when i was a kid and lived in Astoria, it was one of my favorite churches, beautiful. mostly we used to go to st. Demetrius, around the corner, i also went to Greek school there. how did this book come about, has Metropolitan Petros left us? someone told me that the church is now with the newcalender, is that true?

St. Markella is still old calendar. The nearby St. Irene Chrysovalantou is now a canonical Orthodox Church directly under HH Bartholomew of Constantinople, but has special permission to retain its usage of the old calendar.  Perhaps you are confusing the two? If you are talking about an exceptionally beautiful church, it's probably St. Irene.  Wink

Not anymore.  Not for several years.

They are both beautiful.  I can't make up my mind which I think is more beautiful, as my standards are not typical.  But if I'm in the area and can only visit one, I usually go to St Markella's because the people are more welcoming.  I try and go to both, though, since they are not that far from each other at all.

You're thinking of Metropolitan Pavlos, the nephew (?) of Metropolitan Petros.  I just saw Met Pavlos on Sunday, so yes, he is still very much alive, serving, preaching, etc.

Really? I stood in the doorway of St Markella's and it gave me the heebie jeebies. Probably my ecumenical demons.  Smiley

From their ecclesiastical POV, I'm worse off than you, yet I've always felt welcome at St Markella's.

Oh, it definitely wasn't the people. One of the first things I noticed was a nun smiling at me.

Was she really tiny? That's probably Sister Irene Chrysovalantou (ironic name, I know). She is amazing; I have never known anyone as hard-working. The other nuns are awesome, too, though.
