HEADQUARTERS OF RUSSIAN ORTHODOX CHURCH
NOW ESTABLISHED IN THIS CITY.
One of the recent effects of the Russian
troubles has been the moving of the headquar
ters of the Russian Church In this country to
New- York. This has come largely because of
Lhe greatly increased immigration of the last
few years, which gives the Russian population
of the Eastern Stales a preponderance over tfwt
of the Paciric Coast, and because of the ex
pectation that this immigration will continue.
The headquarters of Archbishop Tykon of the
Greek Catholic diocese of America, are now es
tablished at St. .Nicholas's Church, in East
UTth-st. The change was effected earlier in the
year, the Archbishop being transferred from
San Francisco, where the headquarters hitd been
since Ib«JT. The change was made officiary
for practical reasons, to put the head of
church in closer communication with the larger
bodies of his ijarishioners. Before ISDS there
were practially no memoers of the Greek Cath
olic Church in the Eastern States. Shortly
after that time emigration began, not immedi
ately from Russia, but from parts of Austro-
Hungary and other countries which are iarge
ly Greek in religion. Since 1595, therefore, the
Archbishop has been, as he was until this year,
obliged to spend a large part of his time at a
temporary residence here, and he soon found
that his duties on this coast wore heavier than
those 0:1 the Pacific. As soon as arrangements
could be made the change in official headquar
ters was effected, the Bishop becoming an Areh
hishop and his immediate duties in the West
being taken up by a new bishop.
The Greek Church in America now has ai»-ut
sixty churches, in chargo of regularly ordained
priests, and about one hundred chapels, which
are in immediate charge of deacens and other
minor officers of the Church, being visited at
regular Intervals by priests whose parishes each
include a number of chapels. These chaDels
are largely scattered among the islands al-~ng
the coast of Alaska and in smaller cities of the
United States. It is thought that there are
about sixty thousand persons in the territory
of the diocese whose allegiance Is naturally
to the Greek Church, but the number is con
stantly changing, and as there are no rolls kept
in Individual churches it is not certain how
great the number Is at any particular time,
nor how great the number of regular attend
The Archbishop is assisted m the executive
«ork of the Church by the two bishops, one in
Brooklyn, who has been in charge of that dio
cese for several years, and one, the Bishop of
Alaska, in Fan Francisco, who took charge of
the diocese when T> kon was made Archbishop.
There are lxnween sixty-five and seventy priests
connected with the archieplscopal diocese and
several hundred deacons.
The first Greek Church In America was, of
course, :it Washington, where there was a chap
lain conn.rte'-J with the Russian Legation. In
the purchase of Alaska, however, the first real
bo*y of Greek Catholics came under the juris
diction of the government. They were at that
time in charge of a Bishop, who made his li<-;u<
quarters at Sitka, but ho almost immediately
moved to San Francisco, as communication with
the home government was difficult after the
territorial official of Russia left Sitka. It was
not until the late iX>'s that the members of the
Greek Church in the Eastern States became
sufficiently numerous to be constituted a diocese.
the small chapels having been directly uncW the
control of the head of the Church at Constanti
As to the future of the Greek Church in this
country there is. of course, considerable doubt
pending the settlement of the present troubles in
Russ'a. It is believed by prominent officials of
the Church here, however, that the difficulties
will necessarily increase the amount of immigra
tion, and that if another revolution should h^gin
many of th^> better educated and wealthier Pus
sin us would, temporarily at least, expatriate
themselves. This would, of course, give a
greatly improved quality of immigration from
Russia, and might Hrgeiy increase its quantity.
Inimigration from the non-Russian Greek Cath
.untried is expected to continue at about
its prosent volume.
A conclusion which Is drawn by Father Hoto
ritsky. one of Archbishop Tykmi's assistants.
from the present upheaval in Russia is of in
terest from its bearinir on Ken^ral church condi
tions in this country Father Hotoritsky believes
thit when the troubles In Russia have subsided
many Jews already in this country will return
to take advantage of the increased freedom in

ready familiar to them, and which is really their
home. He expects, also, thnt the volume of
immigration of Po"sh and Russian Jews will
suffer a considerable falling off when Russia
