Western-rite in Australia
« on: October 28, 2011, 07:32:43 AM »
Following the regrettable closure of the Ecumenical Chaplaincy Center of the University of Tasmania, the chapel of which was used by St. Dyfan Mission (Russian Western Rite Vicariate) the Mission has relocated for Sunday Mass to St. Petroc Monastery, served by the abbott, Hieromonk Michael (Mansbridge-Wood).  They are actively seeking a new chapel for the mission, which they will hopefully get before the next UK trip of Hieromonk Michael.  Hopefully Fr. Barry Jeffery, the only other Russian Western-rite priest in Australia, will be able to serve the Sunday mass for the St. Dyfan flock.

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
