Greetings to all of you in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.
In early 2008, two denominations from the Philippines were accepted into the Antiochian Archdiocese, one belonging to the Catholic Patriarchate of the East and the other Evangelical.
The Archdiocese will take care of the education, training and ordination of all the thirty plus religious leaders and their followers. It is a historic moments in the history of the Patriarchate of Antioch and the Archdiocese of Australia and New Zealand
Your Archdiocese has been chosen by the Holy Spirit for this heavy task.
Are we going to say “Lord I am here, use me?”.
All of the faithful of our churches are called to pray to the Holy Spirit to inspire and lead them to be His instrument in this endeavour.
All of our members are invited to help financially, through their local churches, the poor and needy of their brothers and sisters in the new land. God is providing us with an opportunity to help the ones whom He loved, let us listen to His voice and get the Grace of the Holy Spirit.

Manila Vicariate, The Philippines: Appeal for Churches, Schools and a Monastery
Dear Brothers and Sisters,
By the Grace of God Almighty, we are pleased to inform you of our projects to establish monasteries, schools and churches in identified areas here in the Philippines, particularly in Tacloban City (Layte), Calbayog City (Samar), the City of San Jose del Monte (Bulacan), Montalban, Rizal, Caloocan City and Antipolo City.
Initially, we will be needing the amount of Php 999,500.00 (US$22,211.111) and, for a year or two, the amount of Php 7,880,000.00 (US$175,111.11), although we project that the main monastery, to be built in a five hectare (5ha) land in Antipolo City, will cost us approximately Php 40 Million (US$888,888.89) on top of the other sites.
Through these, we can have venues for free education for the poor, for religious institutions, priestly formation, spiritual nourishment and, most of all, a decent place to celebrate the Divine Liturgy.
We are new in the Philippines and are poor. We need your help and pledges. If 1,086,211 Christian faithful would contribute a single dollar (US) for these concerns, we could doubtless build these institutions, with God's blessing.
We will issue BIR Official Receipts (ORs) for tax deductibility purposes for every donation or assistance you will extend to us.
