We hope you will enjoy the new design we have created for the site. There are still a few kinks to be worked out in the coding, so please excuse any errors. As time permits, we will add additional content.

Thank you for continuing to make OrthodoxChristianity.net the best and largest Orthodox Christian message board on the Internet!
Clean Monday Shutdown
Written by Fr Anastasios Hudson Monday, 15 February 2010 00:39
Continuing its long-standing tradition, OrthodoxChristianity.net has shut down its Orthodox Christian message board for the duration of Clean Monday.
Clean Monday, the first day of Lent, is one of the strictest fast days of the year. Fasting is not just about giving up food, however; the Fathers of the Church also explain that we must fast from the passions. In this vein, the Administrators of OrthodoxChristianity.net wish to assist their fellow Christians by removing any temptations that might arise from posting online.
Over the years, some have asked why the site is not shut down during the entirety of Lent. The reason is that the site is a large repository of information on the Orthodox faith, and a place where Orthodox Christians gather to fellowship, which are inherently positive things. The site does ask that participants review their total time spent on the site during fasts, however, and limit it accordingly.
Welcome to OrthodoxChristianity.net

Welcome to OrthodoxChristianity.net, home of the world's largest Orthodox Christian message board/discussion forum!
OrthodoxChristianity.net was founded on May 12, 2002, and has enjoyed a steady growth since then thanks to our readers and participants. Our goal is the propagation of the Orthodox Christian faith—the faith of Jesus Christ and His Apostles. Numerous people have been helped along on their journey towards becoming Orthodox due to our site, and we thank God for the opportunity to serve others in this capacity. In addition, our site provides fellowship for many people who live far from an Orthodox Christian parish.
The forum is not the only feature of our site, though. We have several articles, photo galleries, and a growing Orthodox dictionary which will help to define all the terms that many find unfamiliar when encountering Orthodox reading for the first time. We are always looking to expand our offerings, and if you'd like to join our team of editors and writers, please contact me.
Welcome again to the site, and please pray for us as we pray for all that they might find the fullness of faith, the New Testament Church, the Orthodox Church of Christ.
Fr Anastasios Hudson
Founder and co-Administrator, OrthodoxChristianity.net
