Visit of Metropolitan Demetrius to Cuba

On the Sunday before Theophany His Eminence visited our fledgling but growing Cuban flock accompanied by Priestmonk Maximos, the dean of the Latin American missions, and Mr Demetrios Spanos and his wife, Adriana Spanos.

His Eminence met his Cuban flock for the first time. The parishioners (over 20 people) and the Metropolitan were very pleased with their first meetings. His Eminence spoke to the parish on a number of occasions. He presented the new parish with holy relics. Generally speaking, the Cuban people are very poor, so they received icons as gifts which were graciously distributed by our Metropolitan.

Ask A Priest

Is the GOC Insular?

Q. In considering becoming part of the GOC in America, I am getting warnings from various circles that the attitude of GOC people is that of being “walled off,” “arrogant,” “judgmental,” and “in your face” toward those not in the Genuine Orthodox Church, with accusations such as “World Orthodox” priests are “not even Christians” and the like. Could you give me your personal, realistic assessment of this dynamic and possibly refer me to an official statement on how GOC members should and do relate to and communicate with those in “World Orthodoxy”?
