Example text

Syros now holds 7,800 Latins and Tinos approximately 2,600. In addition, several thousand foreign Catholics, many of them refugees from Middle Eastern wars, now make Greece their home. The largest groups of foreign Catholics come from two very different parts of the world: Poles have found work in Greece as construction workers and Filipinos in domestic occupations. Many, particularly the Poles, are in Greece illegally and are not counted as parishioners in the parishes. There has been a major emigration of Catholics, along with the population as a whole, into Athens and its suburbs.

This is especially critical in the metropolitan climate of the Athens region. Because it is so much easier for the whole family to belong to the Orthodox church, a husband or wife may very well give up his or her religion, especially in towns where there is no Catholic church. For the past eight centuries Catholics have shared in the history of the Greek people in the East Mediterranean. This experience has often been positive and at other times, admittedly, events have turned sour. As a minority, the Catholics have often felt threatened and without doubt in the past depended too much on political protection and financial support from the West.

Vandals sprayed graffiti on the Catholic church in Patras. Responding to this challenge, in November 1994 Nicholas Phoskolos, Latin Archbishop of Athens, felt it necessary to list eleven issues of discrimination agianst the Catholic Church in a memorandum to the Minister of Religion and Education. Phoskolos detailed the following charges. Greek Catholics are regularly discriminated against in the work place, in the army, and often when they seek employment. ) Secondly, Catholic students are often humiliated in public schools.
