First Greek Orthodox Church in Alaska Built

The Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America has built its first church in Alaska. The Alaskan Orthodox Church had generally been the one exception to the fractured nature of Orthodoxy in North America, remaining united under the American Orthodox Church (formerly the Russian Orthodox Metropolia). In recent decades, however, small Antiochian, Serbian, and Bulgarian (and now Greek) Orthodox communities have been established in the state, bringing the jurisdiction of Old World Orthodox Churches to the region. More on the new Greek Orthodox church in Anchorage can be found here.
