History

Prior to the establishment of metropolises as sub-organizations of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America, the New England area was designated in 1968 the Third Archdiocese District of the Greek Archdiocese of North and South America. In 1979, the archdiocese was re-organized under a decree of the Ecumenical Patriarchate into a number of dioceses of which the Diocese of Boston replaced the 3rd district.

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 Boston became the Metropolis of Boston in December 2002.
