Unfortunately, some people have to travel to even find a parish. In many towns and smaller cities, there aren't any Orthodox churches. Before my mission (and we don't have a resident priest--we have typica services most weeks) started where I live, you had to travel 70 miles to the nearest parish. In winter (I live in Montana), you may not be able to make the trip often in wintertime when roads are bad and you have to cross a couple of mountain passes to get there. When I first started looking into Orthodoxy, the mission wasn't here, so I'm thankful to have what I have. However, if there is more than one jurisdiction in town, I really don't see a problem with attending them all and choosing to attend the one where you feel you fit in and have the most opportunity to grow. Some parishes are not welcoming to people that are not of their ethnic heritage and the services aren't done in a language they can understand. I would do whatever I had to do to be Orthodox, but if I had a choice of attending a parish where I am welcomed as family and can serve and grow there, then I will choose that parish.
