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.
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'.
Our Lord Jesus Christ..., who came to liberate mankind, in which both males and females are destined to salvation, was not adverse to males, for He took the form of a male, nor to females, for of a female He was born. Besides, there is a great mystery here: that just as death comes to us through a woman, Life is born to us through a woman; that the devil - defeated - would be tormented by each nature, feminine and masculine, since he had taken delight in the defection of both.
