Talk:Macedonian Orthodox Diocese of Australia and New Zealand
I'm unconvinced of the need for a diocese-specific parish listing on OrthodoxWiki in general, as these are usually available on an external source; but I certainly think that, if present, it should be on a seperate page. Thoughts? — edited by Pιsτévο at 06:48, July 4, 2006 (CDT)
As a general rule, I agree parish directories are best found off-wiki. But in this case they do not have their own website and I am unaware of the listing being available on any other internet site. In addition, it gives some idea of the size of the Macedonian presence in Australia, both diocesan and community. In those cities where two parishes have the same name and are right next to each other, one must be the original community and the other the bishop's parallel version. In the absence of a digest showing numbers of community and diocesan by state, the total listing is better than nothing. A separate page might be good. chrisg 2006-07-04-2307 EAST
I did not know that schismatic groups are represented on ortodoxwiki--Ddpbf 08:53, March 20, 2007 (PDT)
- Yes, they often are! They are relevant to the Orthodox Church, despite not being part of the mainstream. Articles should always note their status, though. —Fr. Andrew talk contribs 09:49, March 20, 2007 (PDT)
Headquarters of the Diocesan bishop is Bitola. This is a listing for the diocese. The recent amendment for headquarters appears illfounded.
The diocese in Australia follows the Julian calendar. The recent amendment for calendar also appears illfounded.
