Internet Adviser

This page is designed to introduce a newcomer to the Orthodox Internet. The list of sites presented here is based on the personal experience and expertise of our parishioners and is opened to further upgrades, corrections and discussions. We thought it is very important for everybody starting on their path to Orthodoxy and wanting to develop their knowledge of Orthodox teaching, history and practice to be guided to some reliable Internet sources. It is difficult not to get lost in the jungle of the Internet even if you have a good start. So we advise you to be careful and discerning and to consult your priest if you have any doubts. Our priest Father David is always happy to answer your questions.
