Archdiocese Web Site Named "Best of 1998"
Mar 23, 1999
GoGreece.com has named the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America web site as the best religious web site for 1998. Visitors to the nominated web sites conducted the voting for this web award.
"This is what makes this award so meaningful", said Mr. Theo Nicolakis, the director of the Archdiocese's department of Internet Ministries. "It means that our vision of communicating the message of the Gospel and other information pertaining to the Orthodox Faith is being recognized. While this and the other awards we have received are certainly special, it is really the comments we receive from individuals that are the most rewarding. They express how the Archdiocese web site has helped them learn about the Orthodox faith and life and, in many instances, even lead them to convert to Orthodox Christianity."
The Archdiocese web site was once again recognized in February of 1999 when it was named the "site of the week" by omogenia.com. Other awards which the Archdiocese web site has won include LookSmart's editor's choice award, NetGuide magazine's Gold Award, and Links2Go's Key Resource award.
To date, the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese web site has received over 24 million "hits by individuals from over 100 countries around the world.
The Archdiocese web site features the latest news and releases of the Archdiocese, including the Orthodox Observer; inspirational material on the Orthodox faith and life; live broadcasts of liturgical services and religious education classes; resources for parish ministry; the lives of the saints; online audio and video galleries; and much more.
