The article affirms that the issue lies with the large number of mixed marriages that take place in the Greek American community. Kehayes goes as far as saying that the Greek Orthodox Church in America will be nearly extinct, unless the church acts quickly. The Constitution guarantees their freedom.
Changes have occurred in the cultural make up of Greek Americans since young men first arrived in America in the late 19th century to escape the chaos of their homelands and seek their fortunes. Over the next years they came, limited only by quotas and war.
Among them were the dispossessed, joining millions of immigrants from Europe looking for a new start. Those who came liked what they found and the vast majority remained to build a new life.
They continued to come through most of the 20th century. The first Greek Orthodox Church was founded in New Orleans, almost years ago, but in the main, communities began to appear in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, in an era encompassing the largest immigrations. Byover Greek Orthodox Churches had been built.
Descendants of these immigrants are in their fourth or fifth generations and are several million in number with the vast majority beyond the second generation. However our Church in striving to preserve its cultural heritage continues to project itself as an ethnic religion and most people today view it as such with the result that Greek Orthodoxy has been decimated by attrition and faces a grave survival and identity crisis.
It is a concern shared by learned religious leaders who understand the need for a compassionate outreach towards intermarried families with sensitivity to differences among intermarried couples and the problems they face as a family.
In the transition, as each population passes into successive generations, growing numbers of families move further from their origins, with the probability that our beloved Greek Orthodox Church in America will become moribund in the very near future.
In our society today, religious affiliation of young families may be less about theology than of love, sensitivity and acceptance leading to a conversion of the heart.
The family must be encouraged to facilitate their worshiping as one family. In an act that can strengthen our Church and assure its future, the link must be created that transcends the stumbling blocks that have distanced growing numbers of families. Sincewith continuing immigration and with families spreading across America, over churches were added; yet as the Greek American population has grown into the millions, the number of religiously observant communicants has dropped significantly.
Although the Greek American population has grown extensively through immigrations and post war baby boomer periods, there are fewer active Greek Orthodox today, than in Statistical analyses of reported data by the Archdiocese suggests the majority of marriages in a generation involving Greek Americans occur in jurisdictions other than our Church, and of those within its jurisdiction, interfaith marriages exceed Orthodox marriages by almost two to one.
Indeed, religious attrition has drawn the attention of religious leaders of all faiths. Certainly the high intermarriage trend has affected many institutional religions in a nation that increasingly embraces all religions and in the process has become more secular.
In looking at other culturally based religions in America, the Roman Catholic Church with a population comprised of several nationalities, has also had interfaith marriages and lost communicants for a variety of reasons, however, with many Hispanics immigrating to America over the past fifty years attrition was masked, much as large immigrations in the 20th century obscured religious attrition in the Greek Orthodox Church.
Thus, even as the pre-existing core Catholic population is decreasing, Hispanic population growth can be expected to add millions of Catholic families in the coming decades with continuing growth in America. Conversely, the Greek Orthodox population continuing in the current trend and without supporting immigration to bolster its numbers is expected to lose over half of its religious constituency over this period.
The Trinity report disclosed the number of Jews who described themselves as religiously observant has dropped from 4 million in to 2. In comparing the two religions, intermarriages within the Greek Orthodox Church on a large scale began at an earlier time.
They are further along the attrition rate curve; their situation in the immediate future is more critical. What should be clearly manifest is that the Greek Orthodox Church in America must look hard at how accessible our religion is to evolving young families.
If it is to continue its sacred ministry in America, it must find a way to encompass the old and the new.The brandguide table above concludes the The Garden Centre Group SWOT analysis along with its marketing and brand parameters.
