L’orthodoxie

In France, the orthodox communities depend on three bodies for their spirituality animation : the Ecumenical Patriarchate of Constantinople, the Moscow Patriarchate and Russian Archbishop in Europe. The number of orthodox Christians is estimated between 300,000 and 400,000. Their number has noticeably increased due to the immigration from former communist countries, in particular, Romania.
The Assembly of Orthodox Bishops of France (Assemblée des Évêques Orthodoxes de France) is composed of all the canonical Orthodox Bishops in France. Its mission is to coordinate activities of common interest and give impetus to areas relating to theological and pastoral training, catechesis, liturgical life, publication of religious books, communications and information dissemination. The Orthodoxy website provides information on the orthodox community in Europe, especially in France.
