      ============================================================================
      ====
      SYOSSET, NY [OCA Communications] -- The Orthodox Church in America [OCA]
      unveiled its redesigned and expanded web site, www.oca.org, On Wednesday,
      March 2, 2005.

      The site, which made its debut in December 1996, features several thousand
      pages of information on Orthodox Christian Scripture, doctrine, worship,
      history, and spirituality; a wealth of educational and ministry resources;
      a popular question and answer service; extensive photo galleries; daily
      liturgical texts, commemorations, and music; and directories of the OCA's
      hierarchs, clergy, parishes, and institutions.

      With the blessing of His Beatitude, Metropolitan Herman, OCA primate, the
      site's web team, headed by web master John Mindala, spent countless hours
      over the past year reorganizing and redesigning the new site, which
      averages some 700 thousand hits from over 100 countries each month.

      Numerous technical changes also have been added, making the site more
      user-friendly and easing the site's search features.

      "We are confident that the redesigned site will prove useful to our
      faithful, the general public, and researchers alike," said Protopresbyter
      Robert Kondratick, OCA chancellor, who supervised the site's upgrade
      together with the Very Rev. John Matusiak, OCA communications
      director. "Since its inception, the site has steadily gained in popularity
      and has served to introduce countless individuals to the Orthodox Christian
      faith and tradition."

      Tracing its roots to the arrival of Orthodox missionaries in Alaska in
      1794, the Orthodox Church in America embraces over 700 parishes, missions,
      and institutions across the US, Canada, and Mexico.
