I heard that there is a community of Old Believers in Oregon, about 8 parishes, they live semi-Amish-style, and have a bishop there, speak a form of medieval Russian, etc.  Is this true? To what extent? What are their numbers? Contact info?

Thanks!

I have heard similar things, anastasios.  I understand that they were even utilizing a Benedictine facility for a while.  But, AFAIK, they are not in communion with any Orthodox jurisdiction we'd recognize--they are not even in communion with any Greek Old Calendarist group.  Here in the USA, the only canonical "Old Rite" Orthodox (to the best of my knowledge) are those under the omofor of His Grace, Bishop DANIEL of Erie (ROCOR), himself an "Old Ritualist," who is the ROCOR bishop specifically for those of the "Old Believers" who entered canonical Orthodoxy but are permitted (and even encouraged) to maintain the "Old Rite."

Maybe I should take this to a new thread but how different is the old rite from the new one?  

Thanks,
