Hey, I don't hand out 9.5s to just anyone!
I came across this vide from St. Paul Antiochian Western Rite Orthodox Church in Houston.
In the video from St. Paul's, those aren't women - the man with long hair there is very much a man. That video and the misperception of some in it as women has been discussed on other forums, though you aren't the first to misidentify the participants. Members of that mission have had to clear it up as well.
Are women allowed to serve in a church liturgy so long as they stay outside of the altar? Such as during complicated Pascha services? I'm pretty sure I've seen some videos..
No - to be a server at all, one must be male in the Western rite. Choirs may be mixed, but if they are not male cannot enter the chancel or altar (depending on how the Church is set up.) Pascha services in the West are not all that complicated, but still - we don't do women servers. That would be the normal servers and Deacon for all the services in the Triduum.
My browser can't find the page: http://www.stpaulsorthodox.org/movie/SaintPaul.wmv Has it been moved? Can't find it via http://www.stpaulsorthodox.org either unless it's the one on the main page and from what has been said I don't think that it is.Say please, do the Western Rite separate men and women to either side of the Church during the Holy Liturgy?If not, would somebody please let me know why?
