Re: [orthodox-synod] The Rocor Website
- As been stated many times here in this forum and others, the ROCOR website is
terrible as best! I do not even see the Paschal message on the website.
ROCOR should bit the bullet and spend a few dollars (not cheap I do
understand) developing a site that adequately "advertises" ROCOR. After all
websites are advertisements as well as a means of disseminating information
to its flock and the world. Events occurring within ROCOR should be
documented. For example, Bishop Mitrofan's funeral is not mentioned at all on
ROCOR's website. Bishop Alexander took it upon himself to place pictures of
the funeral on his website.
The website development is best left to professionals. If memory servers me
correctly from a previous email to this forum, it was stated that Father
Peter Perekrestov had stated he has little or no experience developing
websites. Besides he, most likely, has little time to do so anyway.
The OCA website IS phenomenal! The site has Metropolitain Theodosius'
Paschal Message on video and is available in text format in many languages.
The Russian Orthodox Church had its Paschal services available live via
video. This is what ROCOR should be doing as well.
The ROCiE website is also much better that ROCOR's and was put up in a very
ROCOR needs to take initiative and develop a good website that will
disseminate information and be a window to ROCOR. Could it possible deviate

An excellent website can be developed. There are parishes within ROCOR that
do have excellent websites.....
Leaving ROCOR to form an OCA mission is not the answer as the writer of the
email has suggested.
- I have kind of a silly question. I haven't been able
to gather much information regarding the Church's
stance(or lack thereof) towards tattoos. If anyone has
any info, insights, stories, etc. regarding
tattoos(particularly Christian oriented tattoos)
within the church it would be much appreciated. Are
there any known priests with tattoos?
