New priest at St.Nicholas, 12th & East Ave. Young and very devout. Attentive to all details. Cordial. Just what a church needs. St. Nicholas has about 40 regular attendees. Now would be a great time to come back to the faith with this man of faith. He serves vespers and holyday services, knowing 2 or 3 people will show up. Unfortunately the neighborhood is a typical rust belt mess and parishioners are not in the neighborhood. With Father Nick I think this church can be turned around. Please give it a though if you are in this area. Lee Anthony

I'm in the opposite corner of Pennsylvania, never got any closer to Eire than the Cranberry exit of the Turnpike.

Such piety is comforting and, in good time, will prove contagious.

Is St. Nicholas in the ACROD diocese? In the past, Erie had a Romanian church, an OCA church, and a ROCOR church. Except for the ROCOR Old Believer church, the others are gone.

Never mind, I just looked it up. It is ACROD.

What does ACROD mean?
What does "Stavropegion" mean?
What does "oikonomia" mean?
I am new at this. I am registered as "Anaphora"

ACROD is the American Carpatho-Russian Orthodox Diocese, which consists of formerly Greek Catholic parishes that reverted to Orthodoxy and are under the authority of the Ecumenical Patriarchate of Constantinople. They share a common Rusyn heritage with the Byzantine Catholics.

"Stavropegion" refers to churches under the direct rule of a primate, such as a patriarch. It is comparable to the English phrase "peculiar church."

"Oikonomia" or "Economy" in church matters refers to bishops' prerogative to be flexible in the exercise of certain canons, where a rigorous approach would be deemed unnecessarily difficult.
