The Department of Internet Ministry serves the online communications needs of the Antiochian Archdiocese. The Department's team works to share the wisdom and expertise that exists across the workers and ministries of our Archdiocese, by sharing their stories and vital resources with the more than 90,000 monthly visitors to www.Antiochian.org.
Our work at the Department falls in to several different categories: administrative, technical, design, and editorial. Ongoing work includes the development of website content, features and functionality in support of the Archdiocese headquarters, as well as our dioceses, departments and organizations. Original content is also continually being developed and special projects completed.
The staff of the Department includes: Father Michael Habib, Deacon Christian Manasseh, Subdeacon Peter Samore, Subdeacon Michael Haddad, and Editor Virginia Nieuwsma.
We worship Thy Nativity, O Christ.
Show us also Thy divine Theophany!
Christ is born! The team at Antiochian.org is issuing a call for photos from your parish's celebrations, in the season of Nativity and Theophany. Send all photos to email@example.com as JPEG attachments. Please send a maximum of three photos, include a caption for each photo you send, and tell us the name of the parish and priest represented by the photo. We can post videos to our Antiochian.org Vimeo account too, so feel free to send us your videos. More questions? For general submission guidelines, read our checklist here.
A new offering on Antiochian.org features a selection of Ancient Faith Radio's podcasts, providing edification and ease-of-listening access for our visitors. You can find the latest releases on our Antiochian.org homepage sidebar, and in our master collection. The section will be continually updated with episodes of popular programs by men and women from across the Antiochian Archdiocese and beyond, like "Roads From Emmaus" and "Frederica Here And Now".
Technical work was completed by developers from both Ancient Faith Ministries and the Department of Internet Ministry. "While these two departments of the Archdiocese have collaborated closely for years," noted Douglas Cramer, Archdiocese Director of Internet Ministry, "with this project the Archdiocese deepens her ability to share the rich teachings continually offered on Ancient Faith Radio's podcasts."
The team at antiochian.org, in cooperation with the Department of Liturgics and with the blessing and support of His Eminence Metropolitan Joseph, has launched an enhanced Daily Scripture Readings Calendar for use in parishes and homes across the Antiochian Archdiocese. Along with daily references, the complete Scriptural texts are now published in full for added convenience and spiritual enrichment. The readings can be accessed in the homepage sidebar, "Today's Scripture Reading," to the right of the Feature column.
"Creation of a complete calendar has long been a priority of His Eminence, who since his enthronement has wanted the clergy and faithful to be able to access the full Epistle and Gospel readings for both corporate and private worship," noted the Archdiocese's Director of Internet Ministry, Douglas Cramer. "Our Daily Calendar uniquely includes readings in honor of Antiochian saints, such as Ss. Sergius and Bacchus (October 7), and St. Abercius (October 22). Now our readers will be able to follow the annual liturgical guide of the Patriarchate of Antioch."
The readings will soon be published daily on the Archdiocese Facebook page as well.
