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…..

Without lessening my happiness that the gospel is being preached, it is still a source of regret for me that, throughout the jurisdiction of the Catholicosate of the East, evangelical activity is being conducted by almost anyone else.
Quote from: Fr Alexander Schmemann
The Gospel is quite clear: both saints and sinners love God. "Religious" people do not love him, and whenever they can, they crucify him.

Of course, OC.net is not reflective of the Church, but is rather a surreal bubble. I have visited a lot of different parishes around the world and have listened to many hours of AFR...

AFAIK, there is only one Coptic cathedral in Brazil, located in São Paulo with Bp. Agathon, in R. S. Borjas, 201.

Bp. Nareg has more than one Armenian parish but I think they're all in São Paulo and the vicinities: Av. Santos Dumont, 55; R. Carlos da Costa Ramalho Júnior, 497. Most Brazilian Armenians seem to be EC, I'm not sure whether this was due to a specific EC region where Armenian emigrants came from or if the RCC organised this upon the arrival of OO Armenians.

Syriacs, on the other hand, are very widespread: https://igrejasirianortodoxa.com/paroquiascomunidades/

I've seen vagante priests claiming to be Syriac, but if I were to guess, they more probably have succession from the Brazilian Catholic Church then from the SOC. There are some crazy Rastafarians claiming to be Tewahedo on the internet too, but there are no Tewahedo priests in the country and I'm not sure if these guys are organised.

Most of congregation are Coptic Orthodox converted from Muslim.
So they experience a major threat from our cousins (Muslim)
Just pray for them.
