Do you have proof for this? Not that I'd disagree since I know quite a little about the history of the Finnish Orthodox Church but it would be interesting to know what made you think the way you did.

I don't remember now were I took this information from. When I come across the source once again, I'll let you know.

I'd also like to know why Finnish Church introduced Gregorian paschalion.

Mods: topic split?

And the Finnish Church isn't the only one which did it. AFAIN, some parishes in Estonia, Czech Republic and/or Slovakia and, as was said above, Philippines also use the Gregorian paschalion. I'd like to learn about their reasons for doing that. Anyone?

here in the Philippines, its quite confusing actually..  some parishes under the same vicariate use the Gregorian paschalion, while some use the Orthodox date for Pascha..
