Of interest is the missionary growth of ROCOR's Western-rite St, Petroc Monastery Missions in the Far East. Notably of interest is the St. Seraphim Mission in Singapore. The Paruchia website refers to http://orthodoxwesternrite.wordpress.com/south-east-asia-missions/
i St. Seraphim Monastery Mission Singapore, under a Priest Raphael who
comes under the guidance of Saint Petroc Monastery
worshiping in the Armenian Church in Singapore with worship on the 2nd and 4th Thursdays of the month http://orthodoxwesternrite.wordpress.com/south-east-asia-missions/
It is worthwhile following the link from http://orthodoxwesternrite.wordpress.com/south-east-asia-missions/
to the St. Seraphim Mission website which appears to not mention the St. Seraphim Mission by name, or ROCOR or the ROCOR Western-rite or the St. Petroc Monastery at all.
Indeed I was confused by what Fr. Raphael means in his liturgy page: http://saintflannan.org/liturgy.html
where he writes of a closed private worship group that is not evangelical. I thought St. Seraphim's Singapore was part of the the Western-rite missionary movement?
Interestingly Father Raphael also uses the name of "Fr. Seamus
" (click on the link in the orthodoxwesternrite which takes you to: http://saintflannan.org/
This site is called "Saint Flannan's Communion"
and acknowledges post-Schism Western saints including St Ignatius of Loyola, San Juan de la Cruz (St John of the Cross), and many others. The site also says that it is part of Fides in Adversis Ministries Inc (USA non-profit). which is the successor to St Flannan's Communion. Fides in Adversis Ministries
has a number of references including: http://celticchurchlist.community.officelive.com/default.aspx
which lists Fr. Seamus as the Provincial of St. Flannan, and the ministry as both Celtic, Orthodox and Catholic and a ministry of Fides in Adversis Ministries Inc
Also connected is: http://gregorypalamas.org/
an online podcast ministry of Fr. Raphael and Franciscan Lutheran's claim connection to this Singapore organisation: http://www.osf-lutheran.org/#/partners-in-ministry/4540156322
In all these sites one can find no reference to the mission being under the Russian Orthodox Church Outside of Russia's Western-rite, or indeed the name of St. Seraphim's Monastery Mission.
Nor can one find any reference to the superior of the Paruchia. Perhaps since the start of the St. Seraphim Monastery Mission in Singapore the new mission name and details are yet to be loaded to the website, but given that this was a link from a principal website of ROCOR's Western-rite, to say the least it leaves me with more questions than answers.
