founded= |
bishop= |
see= |

You should link this to the appropriate article, in this case, Church of Antioch.

  • Metropolis
  • Archdiocese

In this case: Self-ruled Archdiocese

founded The year when this diocese was founded, such as: 1924

bishop The abbreviated title and name of the current bishop of the diocese, such as: Metr. Philip

see The current seat of the bishop (a city), such as: New York

language The language or languages primarily used within the diocese for services, such as: English, Arabic, Spanish
If there more than one language is used, separate by commas.

You should link this to the appropriate article, in this case, Revised Julian Calendar.

population The estimated population of the church, such as: 51,000 to 380,000

website The name of the church (from the OrthodoxWiki article title) may be abbreviated, such as: Antiochian Archdiocese
This should have an external link to the official website of the church, in this case: http://www.antiochian.org

If there is information you do not have, use — as the entry for that line.
