Join the project
Orthodox Australia project has started 28th February 2014 with the blessing from Mitred Archpriest, Very Rev Dr Michael Protopopov Dean of Russian Orthodox Church of Our Lady Dormition in Dandenong. It went live 24th August 2014.
The Orthodox Australia project was expanded and joined into the Official Website of the Assembly of Canonical Orthodox Bishops of Oceania in accordance with the decisions rendered at the II Episcopal Assembly of 16-17th October 2011 and the III Episcopal Assembly of 14-15th October 2012 under the episcopal moderation of His Grace Bishop Irinej of the Metropolitanate of Australia and New Zealand of the Serbian Orthodox Church.
Our goal is to create multilingual missionary, catechesis and community website about Orthodoxy in Australia, which will provide basic information about Orthodox faith for non-believers and will link Orthodox churches from various national backgrounds.
Please have a look at project presentation and find out our ambitious goals.
We are very young project and we need a lot of help!
Here how you can help:
Verify your parish address
We are trying to provide accurate information about every parish and monastery in Australia; please let us know if we got it wrong or you want more information to be provided.
Submit your local events, photos, Bible study groups, piligrimages
Provide a link to us
Please provide a link on your parish website, something like this: www.orthodox.net.au - map of all Orthodox churches in Australia, Community discussions, calendar of events, photos.
This will inform your visitors about our website and also improve our position in Google search.
Help with Translations
Most of our multi lingual sections are nearly empty! We need translations to Greek, Arabic, Romanian, Bulgarian, Serbian, Ukrainian and possibly other languages too!
Have a look on what is already done and tell if you like it, and how we can improve.
If you have an idea what should/should not be on the website, please let us know
Perhaps this is most important. We need a lot of articles on various topics: missionary (why we don't believe in Buddhism), basics of our faith etc. - look at presentation for proposed list of topics. Of course, submit ideas outside of that range if you think this is important for our site!
Article should come from reputable orthodox source - book or website.
It is good to have permission to reproduce the article; link to original website will be provided
- More information on prayer
- More information on Holy Communion
- More good photos for the front page (send us yours!)
- Some information on non-chalkedonian churches
We run on Joomla 3
