Hartford Institute Studies The Eastern Orthodox Church in America

Attendance at Eastern Orthodox parishes in the United States has grown faster than at evangelical Protestant congregations, but the financial health of Orthodox parishes is worse than that of either Protestant congregations or Catholic parishes, according to a recent study housed on the website of the Hartford Institute for Religion Research. The study of U.S. Christian Orthodox parishes was conducted by Alexie Krindatch, research coordinator for the Assembly of Canonical Orthodox Bishops of North and Central America, and is detailed in the book Atlas of American Orthodox Christian Churches, available on Amazon.com. The Hartford Institute's web page, Research on Orthodox Christian Communities, has additional reports on the Orthodox church in America, including a summary slide show, Ten  Facts About U.S. Eastern Orthodox Churches, prepared by Krindatch, that describes his key findings. The Hartford Institute conducts and disseminates rigorous research into current and emerging issues related to the practice of faith in America. Many of the Institute's research findings, including articles, studies and discussion guides, are vailable for free download and may be useful for clergy, students, journalists or researchers.
