a quarterly magazine about Orthodoxy
in the Western World

Orthodox Exchange: The Magazine seeks to present a positive picture of the Orthodox Churches engaged in ministry across the Western World. It does so by gathering news of goings-on in different parts of the world, and by offering brief articles of educational, historical, and spiritual value.

The primary language of Orthodox Exchange: The Magazine is English, although submissions can be in any of the languages used by the Orthodox Churches in the West and the communities within which they serve.

While standing firmly within the tradition of the Church, the Orthodox Exchange magazine will not publish material determined to be polemical, contrary to the spirit of charity, or representative of only one point of view among the Orthodox Churches as a whole. In recognition that there are many channels now available by which a person who wishes to engage in the controversies of today may do so, this medium seeks to share only those things that are edifying to the faithful and consistent with the Good News of Jesus Christ. Orthodox Exchange will not engage in the criticism of bishops of any jurisdiction.

Published online four times a year:

  • Exaltation of the Holy Cross (Autumn)

  • Nativity/Theophany (Winter)

  • Pascha (Spring)

  • Apostles (Summer)
