Yes, the Southern Continent has its first two official permanent(?) Orthodox chapels.  Go here, and scroll down to the word Mundo, about 3/4 of the way down the page, in red in the middle of the page (or text-search it).  The picture on the left is the Patriarchate of Bulgaria’s chapel (the Ohridski in the name of the base means “of Ohrid,” the same town associated with St. Nikolai whose feast day was yesterday), the one on the right, the Patriarchate of Moscow’s.  They’re both in connection with research stations those countries have there.

Lots of beautiful pictures on that Portuguese page, too!

    No offense meant! I can’t remember for certain, but I must have known that, and chose for whatever reason to refer just to the language, not the provenance. I don’t speak Portuguese, but I know enough of several other Romance languages to tell it’s in Brazil.

    Actually I want to add a couple links to the Brazilian Orthodox ‘scene’ when I get the chance, since mission is the focus of this blog. In the meantime, well, there’s the homepage of the above site – http://www.igrejaortodoxa.info/ – as well as this one – http://ortodoxia-brasil.blogspot.com/.

    I wish you a good remainder of the Fast.
