History

Prior to the establishment of metropolises as sub-organizations of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America, the southeastern area of the United States was designated in 1955 the Fifth Archdiocese District of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of North and South America with a see in Charlotte, North Carolina. In 1979, the archdiocese was re-organized under a decree of the Ecumenical Patriarchate into a number of dioceses of which the Diocese of Charlotte replaced the 5th district. The diocese became the Diocese of Atlanta during the following year, 1980, with the change of its see from Charlotte to Atlanta, Georgia.

In 1996, the Archdiocese of North and South America was split into four separate archdioceses: those of America, Canada, Central America, and South America. With the establishment of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America, the title of the dioceses was changed to metropolises and the Diocese of Atlanta became the Metropolis of Atlanta in December 2002.
