  • The Ecumenical Patriarchate in America comprises five separate jurisdictions, along with a number of stavropegial institutions, and includes roughly two-thirds of all Orthodox Christians in America. The archbishop of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America, by far the largest of Constantinopolitan jurisdictions in the US, is considered the local primate and may convene a Holy Synod of all the hierarchs of the Ecumenical throne in America. Reliable statistics are difficult to find, but the Ecumenical Patriarchate has roughly 500,000 adherents (or up to 2 million, by some estimates) in the United States worshiping at about 750 parishes (about 725) and monasteries (about 25). This includes 14 defined dioceses (a number of which overlap, since multiple jurisdictions exist), governed by 19 diocesan and auxiliary bishops. Thus Constantinople is by far the largest numerical representation of Orthodoxy in America, including roughly twice as many Orthodox Christians under its omophorion than all other jurisdictions combined and about two-fifths of all Orthodox bishops in America. Of the nine bishops who are members of SCOBA, four represent Constantinopolitan jurisdictions.
