    • The Monastery of St. Irene the Chrysovalantou, New York, USA


  • There are 36 Metropolitanates of the "New Lands" of Northern Greece and some of the Aegean Islands which also fall under the spiritual and canonical jurisdiction of the Ecumenical Patriarchate; however, their administration has been entrusted to the Church of Greece on behalf of the Ecumenical Patriarchate since 1928.
  • There are also two autonomous churches whose primates are confirmed by Constantinople, but which are not hierarchically or administratively part of the patriarchate, the Church of Finland, and the Church of Estonia.
