Columbia’s Orthodox Christian community is growing – at least, that’s what churchgoers say it feels like.

*Clarification: The audio version of this story contains misleading information about the church's connection to the Great Schism of 1054. The church was among five patriarchates dating from the third century, and the schism was a time of separation -- the Roman Church split from the other four -- not a time of origin.
