The ministries of the Greek Orthodox Metropolis of Chicago represent the works of the Church and are created on both the diocesan and parish levels to meet the needs, concerns, and expectations of the faithful as well as to positively impact parish communities. In short, ministries are the Christian faith in action.

The Metropolis of Chicago maintains several ministries focused on outreach, athletic, musical, fraternal, and cultural ministries, to name a few. All provide the opportunity for laypeople and clergy to come together and grow spiritually in fellowship, service, and community.

The Metropolis of Chicago welcomes recommendations from its faithful for ministry development. If you have a specific need for a ministry you wish to be considered, please read and complete this downloadable Request for Ministry Need form and an appropriate representative of the Metropolis will responded to you in a timely fashion.
