Other Jurisdiction
== Other Jurisdiction ==In December 2006, Fr. Chris Gain, a deacon from the [[Antiochian Orthodox Archdiocese of Australia and New Zealand]], came to Manila, and, without informing the local hierarchy of the Orthodox Church in the Philippines, registered a church bearing the name "Iglesia Orthodoxa ng Pilipinas" (Orthodox Church of the Philippines). Their webpage describes their church as ''the'' Orthodox Church in the Philippines. This church is seeking to receive Filipino clergymen through incardination. They do not provide information regarding the actual number of members. This jurisdiction, represented by one Abbot Cristofor and based in New Castle, Australia, has no clergy, churches, nor parishes anywhere in the Philippines and is not in communion with the canonical Orthodox Church in the Philippines, which is under the [[Ecumenical Patriarchate]] of Constantinople.
