temples/churches in L.A.???

Post  thecuriousone on Fri Jul 10, 2015 2:15 am

Hello! I've always been in love with Greek mythology and how devoted the Greeks were to their gods, so been researching nonstop of where to find Hellenic community near me.
I live in southern California, does anyone know where to go for Hellenic church/temple/or gatherings overall?

Through my research, it seems vague...by that I mean it wasn't clear whether or not the place is for real Hellenismos. So, I decided to register here in hopes for a certain answer.

Thank you so much in advance!! Smile

There are none in the United States – none outside of Greece at all, as far as I have ever been aware.

The vast majority of those who practice this religion outside of Greece do so individually – that is, they are not part of any 'groups', which is largely the result of #1. there being very few groups outside of Greece in the first place, and #2. those that there are being typically heavily neopagan/neowiccan/occultist influenced.

Individual study ought not to be a deterring factor, however. As it usually happens, eventually, after you get some study under your belt and build some networks via the Internet, you will come across a community that is suitable.

I have not managed to discover such a community, Ερωδιος. Would you direct me to one?
