History

Prior to the establishment of metropolises as sub-organizations of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America, the Detroit area was designated in 1968 the Seventh Archdiocese District of the Greek Orthodox 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 Detroit replaced the 7th 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 Detroit became the Metropolis of Detroit.

Parishes and Monasteries

There are forty six parishes[[1]], two chapels, a mission parish, and one monastery within the metropolis. The monastery is Holy Trinity Monastery of Smiths Creek, Michigan.
