Greek Orthodox Archdiocese & Blue Mountain Arts Collaborate on E-Greeting Cards
Apr 9, 1999
New York - Orthodox Christians from around the world may now send electronic greeting cards for Pascha (Easter) free of charge via the Internet. In a cooperative effort with Blue Mountain Arts, the premiere electronic greeting card provider on the Internet, the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese will provide Eastern Orthodox electronic greeting cards via the Internet. "We are pleased to offer this opportunity for members of the Eastern Orthodox Church to engage in religious-oriented communications with friends and loved ones over the Internet," commented Jared Schutz, Executive Director of Blue Mountain Arts. "By making these cards available in conjunction with the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America, we are providing an important free service to believers." Users may send electronic greeting cards from both the Archdiocese home page at http://www.goarch.org or via Blue Mountain Arts' Web site: http://www.bluemountain.com.
In the near future, additional Eastern Orthodox greeting cards will be available for namedays, special occasions, and the major feasts of the Church. This endeavor is yet another opportunity that the Archdiocese is offering to the faithful around the world to spread the saving message of our Lord Jesus Christ.
