I think that where a parish has a variety of nationalities, regard has to be had to how the people hear names. We ought not, I suggest, to employ pronunciation of names which was current in Victorian public schools, which pronunciation may have lingered on for some of an older generation, but which is not that used by all other people from the Orthodox homelands, nor even by many Anglophone faithful. The use of pronunciation which, if not precisely as in the Greek, is nevertheless common to and so recognisable by the faithful from other countries is, I suggest, to be preferred.

Than you for showing me how to pronounce this phrase.  This is something I have been wondering about for a long time, so I really appreciate it.
