The Coordinating Council of Orthodox Churches in Central Maryland was formed in the 1970’s, and relaunched in January of 2006, for the purpose of fostering cooperation and coordination between the canonical Orthodox Churches in the Greater Baltimore metro area. Each member parish, all of which are listed here, have representation on the Council.
Visitors, or those new to the Greater Baltimore area, are encouraged to use the information on this site to locate an Orthodox Parish that is suited to their particular needs. Members of Parishes in the area are encouraged to visit other Orthodox Parishes from time to time, and to support their patronal Feast Day services, annual festivals, and other special events.
In addition, the Council exists as a forum for sponsoring joint efforts for ministry and outreach, based on the needs of the member parishes.
