I haven't been able to find any info on the Antiochian Church website or on any of the Western Rite blogs.  Heard recently that a fledgling Western Rite mission was starting up in San Antonio, Texas.  A friend says they saw a flyer at a local bookstore announcing Liturgy.  Has anyone heard about this?

Are you sure that this is being started in San Antonio?  A priest was commenting not too long ago that a new Western Rite mission was being started in Oklahoma City.  I know those are 2 very different cities in 2 different states, but this is the only new mission I am aware of.

Tina,

I am aware of several  non-canonical western-rite missions in San Antonio usually of the former Roman Catholic Vagante type, some with 1 Bishop and a few followers.  There is Father Aidan Keller formerly from the Milan Synod out of Austin  who had started a small mission in Austin but then was denied ordination by ROCOR  and the mission folded; he may be trying to start another mission in San Antonio without the prior luggage to hamper it---don't know if he is under anyone at this time.

I would imagine y'all are right about this being something irregular and non-canonical.  We do seem to have our share of flako groups.  My favorite is the Pope John Paul II Orthodox Church & Monastery.  Their monastery and episcopal headquarters are in one old apartment near downtown.  The irony of ironies, is that when alot of the stuff blew up about Christ of the Hills Monastery, the local news interviewed and printed commentary by their "bishop" as if it was official voice of Orthodoxy.

If anyone knows anything on a CANONICAL Western Rite in San Antonio, please let me know ASAP!  I'm being sent there the weekend of November 16, and wanted to go to a Western Rite Parish if there was one just for moral support (I'm Arab, so Eastern).

Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth

Former Charismatic Episcopal Church Priest Starts Western Rite Orthodox Mission

Kevin [Allen of The Illumined Heart (Ancient Faith Radio)] talks with ex-CEC priest - and former Evangelical - Fr Mark Wallace about his journey (along with his wife Susan) to the Eastern Orthodox Church through the Western Rite. Fr Mark's mission is Saint Andrew, the First Called Antiochian Orthodox Church, in Oklahoma City.

Fr Aidan left the Milan Synod and entered the Russian Orthodox Church Abroad.  His Milan Orders were regularised by Cheirothesia (as were those of Father Cuthbert who also left Milan for ROCOR) in September last year by Metropolitan Hilarion  and he is now a hieromonk with the Russian Church Abroad.

Fr Aidan runs a longstanding e-group for the Western Rite, Occidentalis and it is a mine of information.
