7. 'AKA' - What Does It Mean?


What Does 'AKA' Mean?

'AKA' means 'Also Known As'.

We have attempted to use the formal name of a parish in its listing. By 'formal name', we mean the name by which a parish was canonically erected, usually also the name by which it was legally incorporated or chartered.

However, there are instances in which a parish is commonly or frequently known by an alternative name, which may be a variant styling or a shortened form.

  • Examples: Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary versus Dormition of the Theotokos or St Mary's versus Protection of the Holy Theotokos

While such variants may be obvious to parishioners and those familiar with the Eastern Churches, they may be less so to a visitor searching for a parish known only by its informal name. As a result, in instances where a parish has a common alternative name, we list that name, preceded by 'AKA'.

Wisdom from the Church Fathers

Why do you increase your bonds? Take hold of your life before your light grows dark and you seek help and do not find it. This life has been given to you for repentance; do not waste it in vain pursuits.
