Russian Orthodox MP diocese in Argentina
« on: August 04, 2009, 12:42:56 AM »
Does anyone know about the R.O. MP diocese in Argentina?  How many parishes it has?

Is there a web site for it?

Seems to be around 12 or so.

South American seems to be somewhat of an enigma within ROCOR, and you can tell just by looking at the title of their Bishop:  Bishop John of Caracas, Administrator of the Parishes of the Russian Orthodox Church Outside of Russia in South America.  Doesn't look like there is a website, best bet would be to shoot an e-mail for more information.

MP has two dioceses in South America, which have Parishes in Argentina (normal one headed by Metropolitan Platon of Argentina and South America and ROCOR's one ruled by Bishop John of Caracas.

Here you are the directory of ROCOR Parishes but I couldn't find a directory of normal Parishes.

I have heard that a number of ROCOR parishes in South America have broken away and went to the ROCiE.  Thse include all their churches in Brazil and Chile, as well as the historic Holy Trinity cathedral in Beunos Aires.
