Orthodox Churches in Uruguay
« on: March 28, 2004, 08:10:50 PM »
I need help finding the names and addresses of Orthodox Churches in Montevideo, Uruguay.  There is a woman in my parish who is moving back to Uruguay, and would like to find a parish there.   I've done various searches  via Google, and have only found one ROCA Church there.   Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Theodore

How did that church end up in a catholic country? I thought that you guys were against proselytizing? Whatever happened to respecting out mutual territories that we here so much against the catholics in eastern Europe?

RB:

1) There are many Russians in South America. Hence there is a Church to serve them.

2) Our Lord commands us to evangelize the world so it would be against his command to not evangelize. Proselytism on the other hand would be defined as any type of unfair evangelism, such as bread for the Gospel (paying someone off with food or money), or lying to them, or attacking practicing Catholics.  There are plenty of non-practicing people of Catholic descent in Uruguay, just like there are plenty of non-practicing people of Orthodox descent in Russia.  According to such agreements, such people are fair game but not active believers.

3) The Catholics have plenty of churches in Russia, Greece, etc.

Too bad the ROCOR Church only has services once a month. She will probably find a good home there though; it is probably the only Orthodox Church in Uruquay.

The Russians living in Uraguay did not wish to become Catholics. Note that it is just a church, there is no Orthodox Patriarchate being set up in Uraguay  ::)

1 billion Roman Catholics in the world vs. 250 million Orthodox Christians in the world, I hardly think that the Vatican has anything to worry about.  Relax Byz we Orthos have a lot to catch up on.
