Old calendar juristictions
« on: May 24, 2012, 01:26:27 PM »
Everytime I look at the old calendarists, I get so confused, because I can't figure out who is in communion with who. To be honest, I'm not even sure how many old calendar groups there are, so I would be very happy if someone could post a list over the different old calendar juristictions and  the different groups who are in communion with each other.

Also, I would appreciate if we could keep this on an informative level, thank you.  :)

If we can keep this on that level, this thread should be pinned.

It would definitely be nice if we could have the Old Calendarist groups return to us. I mean, we always talk about reunion with our Oriental brothers, so if that is possible, then I definitely think a reunion with the Old Calendarists is possible.
...Or it's just possible he's a mouthy young man on an internet forum.
In the infinite wisdom of God, James can be all three.

There are lots of links at E Cafe, but I do not know if we can post a link to that site.

That'd be funny if someone got in trouble for that, considering that the same guy runs both forums.  ;D

Are all those juristictions in communion with each other?

Those are just the TOC synods that have a presence in America. In America, the only synods that are in communion with each other are the Synod in Resistance under Met. Cyprian of Fili and ROCOR under Met. Agafangel of Odessa. There are other synods who are not listed on that site as they don't have a presence in America. For example, the synod I am a member of is in communion with a Russian Catacomb synod, a Greek synod, and a Bulgarian synod, as you can see here if you look on the left portion of the website:
http://www.hermitage-journal.org/

I know that HOCNA has officially stated (although I can't find it at the moment) that they'll allow laymen of other TOC synods not in communion with HOCNA to partake of the Sacraments in HOCNA as long as HOCNA recognizes their bishop as being a TOC bishop, and as long as the laymen's bishop recognizes HOCNAs Met. Ephraim as being a TOC bishop. While I do not have much experience with synods other than my own, from what I have read, I would imagine that there are other synods who would follow this HOCNA example, just as their are synods that are more safeguarding of the Sacraments and will only allow people who are in communion with them to partake in their Sacraments.
Let us the faithful now come together to praise our father, protector and teacher the pillar of the Orthodox faith and firm defender of piety even the wondrous hierarch Philaret and let us glorify our Saviour Who has granted us his incorrupt relics as a manifest sign of his sanctity.
