History

Many new Orthodox priests had been transferred to Atlanta from the various jurisdictions around the year 2000. They began meeting once a month for fellowship and lunch. This group decided to name the brotherhood after SS. Cyril and Methodius. Over the next several years, relationships deepened and they began frequenting one another’s churches and participating in one another’s parish life. His Eminence Metropolitan ALEXIOS of Atlanta, the Greek Orthodox Metropolitan of the area, very much supported their meetings. He wanted them to do more for Atlanta to bring people the knowledge of the Orthodox Church and to assist those throughout the city who were needy. He wanted them to combine their efforts in outreach to the poor. It is from this base of an extremely supportive local hierarch and a unified group of local Orthodox clergy that many programs begin including:

The Sunday of Orthodoxy Pan-Orthodox Vespers Service

The Pan-Orthodox Lenten (Contrition) Vesper Services

Feast-day (nameday) Vespers and Divine Liturgy celebrations of the communities

The Loaves and Fishes Food Program

The brotherhood has since changed its name to the Atlanta Orthodox Clergy Brotherhood and continues to grow every year.

Our Mission

To bring people the knowledge of the Orthodox Church and to assist those throughout the city of Atlanta who are in need.
