Welcome!

Mor no longer posts on OCNet.  He follows threads, posts his responses daily, occasionally starts threads, and responds to private messages when and as he wants.  But he really isn't around anymore.

Welcome.
I highly reccomend the Greek Orthodox Church, especially to a Catholic looking for the fullness of the faith, and I would be one if I didn't love my own Church so much.  ;D

As a former RC I found the OCA Orthodox Church of America my home. All services are in English.  You will find that there are the ethnic attachments to the Orthodox name but all Liturgies are basically the same.  Some Greek Orthodox churches will have half English half Greek OR repeat almost everything in English.  BUT, and this is important, ALL our Liturgies are consistent with all the other Canonical Orthodox Churches.  

A warm welcome to our website.  I hope that this will be an enlightening experience for you.

I should have left the word "repeat" out when referring to the GOC.  What I meant to say is that most of the service may be in English.
