A new project compiling photographic images presenting Christian life as practiced in the Orthodox Church in America is now underway. The effort will be led by Archdeacon Joseph Matusiak, former Secretary to His Beatitude Metropolitan Tikhon and currently residing in Poland with his family. This important project will culminate in a publicly available album and a proposed exhibition of photos. Widespread participation in this project presenting the diversity and beauty of Orthodoxy in the Orthodox Church in America is sought and encouraged from all interested faithful.

High quality images are requested in the following categories:

  • Churches (architecture, frescos, crosses, tombs, landscape, etc.)
  • People (ordained and lay, portrait, etc.)
  • Reportage (Church events, pilgrimages, feasts, etc.)

To participate, submit your photos by Monday, October 12 to Archdeacon Joseph at with a title for each photo including author name and parish. Submissions are limited to a maximum of six (6) photos in each category. Images should be no smaller than 2,000 pixels in either width or height and each file size should be no greater than 20MB. Please send only original images. Questions may be directed to Archdeacon Joseph at the above address.
