{{orthodoxyinaustralasia}}From the first [[Divine Liturgy]] celebrated at Kirribilli Point (Sydney) in 1820, New Zealand's first [[priest]] in 1910, Australia's first Exarch in 1913, and Australia and New Zealand's first [[bishop]] in 1924, right to the present day, '''Orthodoxy in Australasia''' has a short history that is extremely undocumented and, therefore, largely unseen.
This Previously, this article seeks to be was a clearinghouse of information and links regarding the history and state of [[Orthodox Christianity]] in Australiaand New Zealand; however, this article is now focused on Orthodoxy and any things that affect both Australia and New Zealand, and (God willing) on any information on Orthodoxy in Oceania. ==Sub-series==*[[Orthodoxy in Australia]]*[[Orthodoxy in New Zealand]]
