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'.
