Welcome to the Interfaith Marriage Website
If you’re looking for information about intermarriage, you’ve come to the right place. I pray you will enjoy your stay. Since the site will be updated regularly with new information, I encourage you to come back.
Thanks to the continued financial support of Leadership 100, together with Archbishop Demetrios’ pastoral guidance, this ministry is dedicated to addressing the intermarriage challenge in the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese (GOA).
Most of the contents in this site have emerged from Fr. Charles Joanides' research, workshops and conversations with hundreds of intermarried spouses and couples who are associated with the GOA.
Spouses and couples who are not only from the GOA, but also from other Orthodox jurisdictions belonging to SCOBA have reported profiting from this information.
Intermarried spouses and couples associated with another Metropolis or Archdiocese that is under the jurisdiction of the Ecumenical Patriarchate have also indicated that they found much of this information relevant to their needs and challenges.
Spouses and couples from one of the Oriental Orthodox Churches located in North America have also informed me that the information in this site was both valuable and informative.
Many other types of intermarried spouses and couples have also indicated that they found the contents both interesting and relevant to their needs.
Clergy, grandparents, lay workers, seminarians, psychotherapists, marriage and family scholars and other professionals who, either work with this population, or have an interest in this subject, have also found the information in this site beneficial to their work.
If you happen to have questions or concerns that are not addressed in this site, you can e-mail them to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
