I don't know if it's "a good parish", but if the Assembly of Bishops directory can be believed, it's like sixteen miles away from the town you'll be moving to, and it's Western Rite.  But there seem to be a bunch of parishes in the area.

If the pictures are to be believed, their altar table is a chest of drawers.  :eek:

I'll admit not having looked at any photos, but a chest of drawers is not so bad assuming it's a temporary situation.  I've seen worse.

I really don't see how that has anything to do with it.

There is a Ukrainian Orthodox parish in Boston. 

St. Andrew's
24 Orchardhill Rd
Boston, MA 02130

I realize it's 30 miles, and a 45 minute drive...but, I drive that far every week to reach my own parish..a number of times a week.  It's worth the drive.  :)

That's ROCOR WRV for ya.
You aint lyin'.

Antioch has better numbers usually, because it gets a bit more support than ROCOR. At my current parish, we average 40-60 per Sunday.

Do you know this page? http://www.assemblyofbishops.org/directories/parishes

Putting a random zipcode from Taunton in and closing it to a 15 miles radius, I could find two Greek parishes (and 9 more parishes, including the one Mor posted, going up to 25 miles).
