Some Eastern Orthodox peoples living in the West believe that they are living as dispersed peoples. Or, to be precise, as specific national and ecclesial "diasporas." The Church teaches that Christians, in full communion in faith, love, and sacramental life, should be at home in the One Holy Catholic and Apostolic Church in the new land in which they find themselves. The notion of a diaspora of Orthodox Christians is seen, by many, as an obstacle to jurisdictional unity in North America.
