St. Petroc Mission spreads to Europe
« on: January 19, 2011, 05:54:38 AM »
The St. Petroc Monastery's British blogsite's Hieromonk Michael (Mansbridge-Wood) has announced a Western-rite mission in the Netherlands:

 January 18th 2011.  The Missionary Organisation now has the first Priest in place ready to open the first Western Rite mission on mainland Europe this year.  Saint Swithbert Mission in Holland already has a private chapel, and is looking for more public premises.  Western Rite services have previously been held in Belgium, but no permanent mission was possible at the time.  Western Rite services have been held under the Moscow Patriarchate as well.

To the Russians abroad it has been granted to shine in the whole world  the light of Orthodoxy, so that other peoples, seeing their good deeds, might glorify our Father in Heaven, and thus obtain salvation

Does anybody know what Liturgy is being offered to the Western Europeans?  It doesn't make sense to offer them the revised Anglican BCP?
