Help us develop an Orthodox prayer book in Tagalog

PHILIPPINE MISSION

In 2014, through the gracious help of the Mission Society of St Serapion Kolozhersky, the Orthodox prayer book was printed in the Cebuano language of the southern Philippines. Now an increasing number of Orthodox Filipinos are finding this resource to be of great value in their morning and evening prayers, preparation for Communion, and daily life together. Glory to God!

However in parts of Mindanao, as well as in the northern island of Luzon and in the capital region, many Orthodox Filipinos speak Tagalog, also known as Filipino, one of the national languages of the Philippines. The languages are related, but not mutually understandable.  We are now seeing growth in Tagalog-speaking Orthodox mission communities, so we want to provide the same resources in their language.

So, with fear and trembling, we are beginning the process of translating the Orthodox prayer book into Tagalog. Some find it helpful to refer to the Cebuano version to see how the thoughts have been transferred into a more familiar order, so we are working in three columns: English, Cebuano, and Tagalog. You can follow the progress of the project or contribute to it, at this Facebook group: facebook.com/groups/TagalogOrthodoxPrayerbook. Pages will also be linked here on the Web, for those who do not use Facebook.

If you are a native speaker of the Tagalog language, and you would like to be involved, it’s easy! Just open one of these files, choose any prayer and put it into Tagalog, and send your work to silouan@gmail.com or facebook.com/silouanthompson. As the text grows, it will be reviewed and edited by clergy, and then the Orthodox faithful will start putting it into action.

Whether you can contribute or not, please pray for this project. It’s an exciting opportunity to help the Church grow in the Philippines!
