HAVE FAITH – ORTHODOXY

Philippines, 2012:

Thousand families became Orthodox Christians

In December 2011, one of our Orthodox priests in Manila called His Eminence to report that he had been in contact with three different groups and some individual leaders who had all come to the conclusion that they would like to join the Orthodox Church (Antiochian Patriarchate). The Archdiocese began communications with these groups. We learnt that the larger group, consisting of some seven thousand families, knew much about Orthodoxy and that their leaders were very proud to call themselves “orthodox” with a small o.

On Saturday, January 28, His Eminence travelled to the Philippines to visit his parishes and to meet with the new groups. On Tuesday, January 31, His Eminence and seven clergymen of the two larger groups met and discussed their teachings over three full days. At the conclusion of this meeting His Eminence welcomed them to the Antiochian Orthodox Church and promised to bring some of their clergy to Sydney for training and ordination, to be followed by a trip to the Philippines by His Eminence to train and ordain the other leaders.

The groups are the “Apostolic Catholic Church”, with seven thousand families; the “Missionary Society of St. Paul”, with two thousand families; a minister with one hundred families; a bishop with a thousand families; and a leader with a large group of social workers who work with the homeless and poor.

During his visit to the Philippines, His Eminence and three of the new ministers who are already involved as hospital chaplains visited a government hospital that serves 250 poor children. They asked that the hospital directors assign one of our clergymen as a chaplain, which the directors agreed to do.

Philippines, 2007: The conversion of the leaders of two separate Protestant Christian groups to Orthodox Christian Church

CONVERSION TO ORTHODOXY

Philippines, 2007: The conversion of the leaders

of two separate Protestant Christian groups

to Orthodox Christian Church

In 2007 the leaders of two separate Protestant Christian groups in the Philippines contacted His Eminence Paul in Sydney (Antiochian Patriarchate), asking to join the Orthodox Church.

Many long and fruitful discussions were held between His Eminence and the two leaders, which culminated with His Eminence inviting them to Sydney for further face-to-face discussions.

They arrived in May 2007, where they stayed as guests of His Eminence for three weeks. The teachings of the groups were considered and they also learned about Orthodoxy.

At the end of the three weeks, both leaders stood and declared:

“We accept what the Orthodox Church accepts and refuse what She refuses.”

His Eminence answered them, “Welcome home,” the phrase with which Archbishop Philip (Antiochian Patriarchate) welcomed the converts.

ORTHODOX MISSION

The Philippines is a group of coral-embroidered islands, which the Pacific Ocean stole from the land of South Asia and made its own. They form a sea carved archipelago of more than 7,000 islands with a population of 95 million people. Its people are characterized by politeness in speech and kindness. Their piety stems from as pure as crystal soul and the religious feeling permeates throughout their society.

The Grace of God, Who knows how to defy the odds, allowed our Orthodox faith, which leads to salvation, to rise in this country as well, about 30 years ago. It all began in 1983, when Vincent Escarcha, a Roman Catholic benectidine abbot from the island of Masbate in Central Philippines, made a trip to the USA. There, on Holy Saturday, he met a large crowd of worshippers outside a Greek Orthodox Church and felt the urge to participate in the Divine Liturgy of the Resurrection. He was touched by the Orthodox worship and began to attend the holy services regularly, which lasted for six months.

His quest for Orthodoxy did not stop there. After seven years of laborious research, studying and penetration into the Orthodox faith, in 1990 along with another 12 souls he accepted the pastoral visit of Metropolitan Dionysios of New Zealand and of the Bishop of Zela at that time, Fr. Sotirios Trampas. In the Continue reading “Philippines: The dawn of Orthodoxy”

ORTHODOX CHRISTIANITY

With the coming of the Communists, the Russians in China were forced once again to flee, most of them through the Philippine Islands. In 1949 approximately 5,000 refugees from the Chinese mainland were living in an International Refugee Organization camp on the island of Tubabao in the Philippines. This island is located in the path of the seasonal typhoons which sweep through that part of the Pacific. During the 27-month period of the camp’ s occupancy, the island was threatened only once by a typhoon, and it changed course and bypassed the island.

When the fear of typhoons was mentioned by one Russian to the Filipinos, they replied that there was no reason to worry, because “your holy man blesses your camp from four directions every night.” They referred to Vladyka John; for no typhoon struck the island while he was there. After the camp had been almost totally evacuated and the people resettled elsewhere (mainly in the USA and Australia), it was struck by a terrible typhoon that totally destroyed the camp.

Originally under the canonical spiritual jurisdiction of the Orthodox Metropolitanate of Hong Kong and Southeast Asia. On September 2011, after the suspension of it’s former Rector Fr. Kleopas Dackal, the community was led by him into the Old Calendar schism. The Holy and Sacred Synod of the Ecumenical Patriarchate, during it’s regular monthly session held on Dec. 1, 2012, decided eventually to defrock Fr. Kleopas Daclan, according to decision with Prot. No: 1047/1-12-2012. Orthodox Christians in the Philippines are requested not to have any kind of communication with this schismatic community, until the problem is solved.
