The local Churches of the Ecumenical Patriarchate consist of five archdioceses, three churches, one exarchate, 12 metropolises ("metropolis" is preferred use over "metropolitanate" within this particular Orthodox jurisdiction), and one diocese, each of which reports directly to the Patriarch of Constantinople with no intervening authority. In addition, three of the five archdioceses have internal metropolises (16 in all), which are part of their respective archdioceses rather than distinct administrative entities, unlike the other metropolises.
In America, the [[Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America]] is headed by His Eminence [[Demetrios (Trakatellis) of America|DEMETRIOS Demetrios (Trakatellis)]], Archbishop of New York and All America.
