Oriental Orthodox Church Directory
« on: October 20, 2011, 09:14:11 PM »
I would like to have this thread be a place where we can link directories and other information that would help people locate Oriental Orthodox parishes, dioceses, and organizations.

Please do not post bare links.  Please give a short explanation of what the links are about when you post them.

Here's something Copts use for churches in the US and Canada:

http://www.copticchurch.net/topics/directory/
Vain existence can never exist, for "unless the LORD builds the house, the builders labor in vain." (Psalm 127)

If the faith is unchanged and rock solid, then the gates of Hades never prevailed in the end.

I found these for both Malankara Churches in the US:

Malankara Orthodox Syriac Church:

Malankara Syriac Orthodox Church:

http://www.malankara.com/church/church-directory.html

If any Malankara Orthodox has better lists, please share :-)

By the way for people in Europe, Canada, Australia, everywhere else in the world, please do share your directories as well.

Please, Ethiopians, Eritreans, Indians, Syriacs, Copts, British, French, Armenians, please share these places for an Oriental Orthodox to look through, or for an inquirer who's looking into our churches.

If we can unite all OO sources into this one thread here, this thread can be a great service for all.  Perhaps, this can open the door to help make a SCOOCh directory site in the future.

Thank you.

So as it turns out, the copticchurch.net website does not update regularly, and when they do, it's usually a church with an official priest.  However, I just found out that in the place where I'm staying, there's a Coptic community which has a visiting priest coming in twice a month for liturgical services.

A website where you can find these communities and churches in the Southern Diocese of the US may be found here:

I was confused and assumed they weren’t OO when I saw “Eastern” and “Western” on theses website. Now I know it is used for their locations in the USA…..

Thanks

This is the first time I saw this, but I'm glad there's this site:
