It appears that the first virtual Orthodox chapel was built in Second Life. In a post on Sept. 3, 2006, Todd Michael ("OrthoCelt") states:
- "I have managed to find another Orthodox online, who built a small Eastern Rite chapel. So to mix things up, I build a rather large Western Rite chapel for Raphael on the property he owns (also seen in the photo), with Ancient Faith Radio being piped in for background music."
