Priests are not members of unions. There are several major groups in the Eastern Orthodox faith in North America. The Orthodox Church in America has dioceses in the United States, Canada, and Mexico, about 400 parishes, and three seminaries. The Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America is composed of an archdiocesan district—New York—and eight metropolises: New Jersey, Chicago, Atlanta, Detroit, San Francisco, Pittsburgh, Boston, and Denver. It has 540 parishes, 800 priests, and approximately 1.5 million faithful. Aspiring priests train for the field by attending Hellenic College Holy Cross. The Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the United States of America has about 80 parishes in 23 states and one seminary.
