I recently communicated with someone from Holy Trinity Orthodox Cathedral, Chicago. Their web site is very nice and what I thought was quite interesting is they have created a separate web site for the parish’s multi-year restoration efforts which includes before and after shots of some completed restorations. It seems like a very useful part of a capital campaign like that.

My parish has been running in the red and I think is moving toward starting a capital campaign. We're in the middle of having all our stained glass restored. If we had something like this it might have generated more donations.

Holy Trinity is a beautiful cathedral. It's one of only a few churches that were designed by the famed architect, Louis Sullivan, and stands in sharp contrast to the interpretation generally given to a quote for which he's famed - "form follows function". Many architects saw the phrase as suggesting that functionality was of infinite more import than beauty - something that is not particularly true of Sullivan's own work, much of which was adorned with classical or fanciful stonework.

Many years,

Erie,

Very nice pairing of the 2 parish websites. I especially liked the exquisite iconography (I'm a fan of bright, rich, coloration in icons, which it sometimes seems is not very prevalent among we Byzantines, except in iconography of the folk-art style.) The calendars are extremely well-done and informative, as well.

Many years,

Neil

Fr. Andrew has been doing a lot of good things with the Erie Parishes, including getting the website up and running; the website got up and running last year on the Patronal Feast of Ss. Peter and Paul to kick off the rededication year (or at lest that's what I think). I miss being at that parish. In my opinion it seems considerably younger in mean age, than most parishes I've attended.

Rose,

Actually, OLPH was the first parish highlighted in this thread, but I'm glad you posted the link again because it offers the chance to point out the new book by Father Christopher (Zugger) - showcased on the site's front page. I had an e-mail from Father Christopher a few days ago regarding its release and had intended to post about it this week.

"Finding A Hidden Church" is a history of the Ruthenian Church

Quote
the result of eight years of interviews and research covering the history of the Ruthenian Greek Catholic church in the USSR and independent Ukraine


Many years,

Neil

Neil,

It sounded like a wonderful book. It was part of what got my attention.

You know, now I see there are three pages worth of discussion, I checked when I posted it, and didn't see other pages.

It just goes to show I was looking with my eyes closed in a bit of a hurry :D,

In the thread regarding the Baptist minister's visit to an Orthodox parish for Divine Liturgy, Ed MacDonald posted a link to an OCA parish - St Anthony the Great in San Antonio, TX, the parish visited by Rev. Atkinson. It's a beautifully done website, very informative, and evidencing a parish that is alive and thriving - well worth reposting the link in this thread:

Many years,

Neil

If anyone had problems with the link to St Joseph the Betrothed Parish (two posts above), the link has been repaired.

Many years,

Neil

St Anne's Byzantine in San Luis Obispo has done some major upgrading to their website, including: the addition of a number of YouTube clips; the KofC EC Churches booklet that we recently discussed on another thread; and, some beautiful photos of the renovations to their temple (the exterior, in particular, you'd not know to be the same church). Both the weekly bulletin and monthly calendar are very nicely formatted - and the history text is illustrated with thumbnail portraits of clergy and hierarchs who played roles in it.

They also have a parish FaceBook page - link available from the website - an interesting evangelization tool.

The parish does continue its long-time practice of serving some Latin devotions - most notably communal Rosary and Eucharistic Adoration - BUT be forewarned - that is not the point of this thread and I don't expect that we're going to get started on and bogged down on discussion here of those issues.

Many years,

Neil

When one considers that the short- and long-term fate of the Byzantine Church of the Resurrection in Smithtown was a matter of great concern in the not long distant past, its current website speaks volumes for its present and future. The links page is a great resource and the yearly calendars of Fasts and Major Feasts is likewise.

Many years,

Neil
