Hello! My name is Anastasios Hudson. I currently live in Reston, Virginia, where I work as a business resiliency analyst.
From 2002-2005, I attended St. Vladimir's Seminary, in Yonkers, New York. I graduated cum laude with a Master of Divinity degree, and my thesis was titled Metropolitan Petros of Astoria: Microcosm of the Old Calendar Movement in America. In 2014, I self-published a revised version of my thesis under the same title. It is available for sale on Amazon.com in both hardcover and eBook versions.
Between New York and Virginia, I spent many years living in Raleigh, North Carolina, where I was part of several missionary endeavors.
I am a member of the Church of the Genuine Orthodox Christians (GOC), also known as the Greek Old Calendarist Church, and my diocesan bishop is His Eminence Metropolitan Demetrius of America. I attend St. Nicholas of Myra Orthodox Church in Upper Marlboro, Maryland, under the pastorship of the Reverend Fr. George Psaromatis. I should note that any and all of my writings are my sole responsibility, and I am responsible for any errors contained therein.
I am part of the administrative team of OrthodoxChristianity.net, which I co-founded on May 12, 2002. It is the oldest Orthodox forum of its kind still active, and indeed the largest; while forums in general have waned in popularity owing to the rise of social media, there is still a strong commitment to and participation in online forums as they allow a method of communication that is far superior to and thoughtful than Facebook threads, for instance.
You can find many of my writings online at my website, listed below. As of the present (February 2021), it has been inactive for over five years owing to personal circumstances, but I do hope to begin publishing again at some point this year.
