In a separate, heavy bottomed kettle, saute bacon, butter, onion, oregano, and parsley over low heat. Do not allow to brown. Add flour to make a roux and continue to cook for several minutes.

Add the hot clam stock through a strainer, a cup at a time, and whisk until smooth. Add the remaining potatoes, clams, and stock and bring to a simmer.
