Orthodoxy in the Philippines today: the Antiochian Mission in the Philippines has been disbanded. Pls. see En Wikipedia article on the said Antiochian Mission
Within the Ecumenical Patriarchate's [[Orthodox Metropolitanate of Hong Kong and Southeast Asia]], there are currently three Filipino Orthodox priests in the Philippines under the spiritual jurisdiction of the Ecumenical Patriarchate of Constantinople and are administratively under an ecclesiastical vicar from Greece. In these communities, the Divine Liturgy and other Orthodox worship services are said in English, Greek and Filipino.
Metropolitan Archbishop [[Paul (Saliba) of Australia and New Zealand|Paul (Saliba)]] appeared to have established the now defunct Antiochian Orthodox Christian Mission in the Philippines within the [[Antiochian Orthodox Archdiocese of Australia and New Zealand]] (as per the Holy Synod of Antioch). At present, there are two mission areas in Metro Manila
There are also some [[Independent Orthodox churches|independent groups]] in the Philippines that use the term ''Orthodox'' in their names but are not in communion with or are recognized by any canonical Orthodox church.
