SCOBA PARISH DIRECTORY AVAILABLE

New York, NY - For the first time, a "Directory of Orthodox Parishes
and Institutions" of all the member jurisdictions of the Standing
Conference of Canonical Orthodox Bishops in the Americas (SCOBA) is
available.  This
2004 Directory has been endorsed by SCOBA.  Praising this noteworthy
effort, Archbishop Demetrios, the Chairman of SCOBA, stated "It is
with great enthusiasm and love that I, on behalf of all the Hierarchs
convey our blessings and endorsement of the Directory."

The Directory has been prepared by the Orthodox Christian
Communications Network, headed by Mr. Philip Tamoush of Torrance, CA,
and  is published by Light & Life Publications of Minneapolis, MN.  A
great travel companion for all clergy and laity who want to
participate in worship services when traveling on vacation or
business, the Directory contains the name and address of each parish,
as well as listings of camps, seminaries, monastic communities,
shrines and an alphabetical index of all priests.

The Directory contains 208 pages in 81/2 x 11 inch format.  It is
perfect bound and has over 2,500 listings.  Though privately financed,
50% of all proceeds will assist the work of SCOBA.

The 2004 Directory may be ordered for $9.95, plus $2.50 postage and
handling, from: OCCNET,  P.O. Box 1128, Torrance, CA 90505-0128. Trade
discounts are available, as are discounts on 10 or more copies to one
address.  For additional information call: 800-747-9245. Fax:
800-903-4266. Email: FESTAL@JUNO.COM


Oh Lord, Save thy people and bless thine inheritance.
Grant victory to the Orthodox Christians over their adversaries.
And by virtue of thy Cross preserve thy habitation.

Now, if they could just have an online version...maybe linking the search engines/directories of OCA, GOA, Antiochian, etc. together?

Or how about just a directory of ORTHODOX parishes including ROCOR and Jerusalem Patriarchate parishes?

Yeah, but that would piss off the Antiochians, for example and they wouldn't allow it. ::)

Check out CRTL's website

  http://www.receive.org

and there find a fledgling parish database with SCOBA and ROCOR included (they haven't linked ACROD database in yet, but it's planned). I guess if the JP finally gets onto the SCOBA, theirs will be included as well.
