The Antiochian Archdiocese places a high priority on outreach and communication through a variety of mediums. This is particularly demonstrated by Ancient Faith Ministries, which encompasses both Ancient Faith Publishing and Ancient Faith Radio, an online streaming radio station. Ancient Faith Publishing, formerly Conciliar Press, has been a witness of Orthodox Christianity in the English-speaking world for over thirty years. Ancient Faith Radio broadcasts both Orthodox music and talk in two separate streams twenty-four hours a day.

Ancient Faith Ministries Launches Orthodox Christian Ebooks

Ancient Faith Ministries has announced the launch of Orthodox Christian Ebooks. The collaborative website features Orthodox ebooks from multiple publishers, all in one place.

"We are excited about this new web site which will provide a convenient online destination for the best in Orthodox ebooks," said John Maddex, CEO of Ancient Faith. "It will especially be helpful to international readers who are often discouraged by high shipping costs from the U.S."

2016 Ancient Faith Icon Calendar Features American Saints

One of the most popular Ancient Faith offerings each year during the Advent season is the Icon Calendar. Now again available for purchase, the 2016 version features the saints of America rendered by six notable iconographers. The 11" x 12" full-color calendar displays large calendar boxes for recording important reminders. 

The feast days shown on this calendar in bold, blue type are the twelve great feast days of the Orthodox Church. Other feast days of some of the most popularly venerated saints of the Orthodox Churches around the world are listed in black, regular type. Dates are listed according to the Gregorian or "new" calendar. (Note: A different version of this calendar is available which makes use of the Julian or "old" calendar dates.)

Antiochian.org and Ancient Faith Collaborate on New Podcast Section

A new offering on Antiochian.org features a selection of Ancient Faith Radio's podcasts, providing edification and ease-of-listening access for our visitors. You can find the latest releases on our Antiochian.org homepage sidebar, and in our master collection. The section will be continually updated with episodes of popular programs by men and women from across the Antiochian Archdiocese and beyond, like "Roads From Emmaus" and "Frederica Here And Now".

Technical work was completed by developers from both Ancient Faith Ministries and the Department of Internet Ministry. "While these two departments of the Archdiocese have collaborated closely for years," noted Douglas Cramer, Archdiocese Director of Internet Ministry, "with this project the Archdiocese deepens her ability to share the rich teachings continually offered on Ancient Faith Radio's podcasts."
