What ever happened to the evangelistic efforts of the Jersulaem Patriachate (JP) in the USA?  It seems that their whole purpose was to "get back" at Metropolitan Philip for his comments about the Arabs under the JP in the Holy Land, by accepting the former Ben Lomond group into their jurisdiction. They were supposed to be the new "traditionalist" and canonical jurisdiction in NA, but they seem to have run out of steam.

Sources from inside the JP tell me that Patriarch Bartholemew decided 14 parishes was enough and pulled the plug on the expansion. He had originally allowed the receptions in a deal with Jerusalem, who had relinquished its right to have parishes and priests in America in 1930.

I would be grateful if anyone else could expand on this or provide other information as my source told me this some time ago.

And what comments were those?

I'm not sure what you mean by "and what comments were those?

Having said that, in regards to the perception of the JP being the new canonical traditionalist jurisdiction, several parishes joined the JP in the early 21st century that were not of Greek or Arab origin (i.e. Washington State). There was lots of talk about joining this group, especially by disaffected Greeks and Antiochian arabs (who often feel English is forced upon them) and Antiochian converts (who feel the  archdiocese is too liberal). Considering the fact that the JP was not allowed in Australia, to me it sounds like Anastasios' sources are "right on the money."

There is a Jerusalem Patriarchate Church about 15 minutes away from my house. The thing I dont like about the JP in NA is that their parishes are so extremely hard to get a hold of any body there to find out if the church is still open and when there services are.
I am going to keep trying though.

Greetings,
I attended a Divine Liturgy at the Glorious Ascension Monastary in Recasa, GA in Oct '05.  They had a great book store and the Monks and parishioners were very kind.  They used to be a ROCOR parish I am told but joined in with the JP. Don't know all of the details, though.

God Bless,
T
