Orthodox Churches in Albuquerque, NM?
« on: October 24, 2008, 12:43:31 PM »
I have attended two Eastern Orthodox Churches in Albuquerque, NM, St. Greek Orthodox Church, and All Staints of North America Mission OCA. Does anyone have an experience of these parishes? Is what I find here that which is to be expected from the typical Eastern Orthodox Parishes?

Oh, honestly, I am not sure. These two Churches are my only experience of Eastern Orthodoxy outside of the internet.

I don't know the parishes, but I think the priest at the Greek Church is a friend who was in Cleveland for a long time (Fr. Paul - he's really tall, especially for a Greek).  He's a great priest.

"If you are going to serve the Lord, be prepared for times when you will be put to the test. Be sincere and determined. Keep calm when trouble comes. Stay with the Lord; never abandon Him and you will be prosperous at the end of your days. Accept whatever happens to you. Even if you suffer humiliation, be patient. Gold is tested by fire and human character is tested in the furnace of humiliation. Trust the Lord and He will help you. Walk straight in His ways and put your hope in Him. " Sir 2:1-6
