Faith: Roman Catholic (Anglican Use)

This is a bit off-topic, at least judging from the selection of replies that I read, but I live in the Philippines, just joined the forum and wanted to say "Hi".  

I hope to attend an Orthodox service or two soon since my interest in liturgy has grown over the years and I have only attended one Orthodox, or rather Eastern service (a Greek Catholic one in Boston).  

One reason for my interest is my conversion from the Episcopal Church (USA) to the Roman Catholic church several years ago and in those years I have tried to stay active in Anglican Use circles.  With the announcement of the coming Anglican Ordinariates within the Catholic Church, there has been more interest in Anglican Use and a few of us are trying to put together a small AU group here in the Philippines.

I hope too to learn some more about the Orthodox perspective on various issues.  I have read a bit on Orthodoxy especially from Frederica Mathewes-Greene, a feminist pro-lifer, wife of a priest, and Orthodox convert from Anglicanism, which I enjoyed and found deepened by faith.

According to the Board Policy we should not describe Eastern Rite Catholics in the way you did as it can be received as an offence. BTW welcome to the forum.

is there anybody who could confirm if the Davao vicariate under Fr. Jeptha Aniceto was officially received into ROCOR? Their list in the Philippines parishes in the antiochian orthodox australian website seemed deleted.

Joseph Aniceto was officially excluded from ROCOR missions in the Philippines by his Eminence Metropolitan Hilarion in writing last year.  ROCOR has two operating missions in the Philippines, both under Saint Petroc Monastery.  We have no connection with any other jurisdiction in the Philippines and we do not acknowledge anyone's suzerainty there it is a missionary area.

That leads to more questions and blank walls of silence.

Hope the ROCOR mission moves fast toward North of the Philippines. Its indeed a vast mission area, and the grains are ready for harvest.

Lets pray for more harvesters...Lord have mercy..

For information re the ROCOR western rite missions in the Philippines, which claims 200 plus souls ( originating and released from Antioch, I read) see: http://orthodoxwesternrite.wordpress.com/698-2/

Quote
Saint Thomas Orthodox Mission[/b]

Mindanao, the Philippines   

Thomas, the faithful servant and disciple of Christ, filled with divine grace, cried out from the depth of his love: You are my Lord and my God!

The Saint Thomas Mission is a thriving Orthodox community of 140 former Old Catholics who entered the Church in 2008 through Antioch and, after obtaining canonical release, were later received by ROCOR with the blessing of Metropolitan Hilarion.  They, and their pastor, whom they refer to as Father from habit and affection (and therefore so do their brothers and sisters in Christ in England), own their own church building which they use for regular Sunday services and meetings throughout the week. The faithfulness of these people worshipping together and raising their children in the Faith without a priest of their own is an inspiring witness.  They are all Chrismated Orthodox and have for the past year received occasional visits from Orthodox clergy.  The mission is in the middle of an area where the moslem Abbu Sayyef terrorists operate and no Priest serving this mission visiting from Australia will be named or have his schedule known.

Advice on travel and terrorism in the Philippines from the Australian government

“We strongly advise you not to travel to Mindanao, including mainland Mindanao, the Zamboanga Peninsula and the Sulu Archipelago, due to the very high threat of terrorist attack, including kidnapping, and related counter-terrorism operations.   Armed clashes between Philippine security forces and the Moro Islamic Liberation Front could occur without warning, including in central Mindanao”.


St Thomas' traditionally built church.

Some of the faithful of St Thomas’ Mission who came as a family to the fullness of Christ in Holy Orthodoxy.

Interior of the church.

As you can see there are many children and young people, please pray particularly for them that they continue to be blessed to grow up in the Orthodox Church.
.
Saint Anastasia Orthodox Mission

Mimndanao, the Philippines

This formerly Old Catholic mission is without its own pastor, with only some lay leaders and occasional visits from Orthodox clergy.  About eighty people, it incorporated as a ROCOR mission and is searching for a property to use for worship.

NB

Jeptah Aguas Aniceto and Chrysostom Canezal

We realise that the activities of these two have caused legitimate concern and remind you that they have been formally excluded from involvement in the Philippines Missions by the Metropolitan at Fr Michael’s request. The formal document of exclusion has been circulated in the Philippines, the original is held in Saint Petroc Monastery.

I meant blessings for the both of them.  Yes, Metropolitan Paul (Saliba) is head of the jurisidciton in the Philipines, if I have understood this correctly.  May God bless bless him.

Michal - I believe that originated on OrthodoxWiki a while back and, after some time on there (and the enquiries of an American priest, IIRC), was corrected. See: http://orthodoxwiki.org/Paul_%28Saliba%29_of_Australia%2C_New_Zealand_and_the_Philippines

_Seraphim_, thank you for the link. Do you know, or can you, please, get information, what rite are they using on the Philippines? Is it still Roman Catholic Novus Ordo Missae or have they turned to one of the Orthodox Liturgies, Eastern or Western?

To answer that, the Ecumenical Patriarchate here, uses Eastern Rites, while the Antiochian Church, uses Western Rites and even uses the Roman Catholic Calendar (or at least I found out that they do)..

Metropolitan Paul told me in July that his parishes in the Philippines use the Byzantine Rite.
