Abba Pachom and St. Cyril, Pray for us!


« on: April 06, 2014, 07:14:51 AM »

Hello everyone. I hope everyone is benefiting from the Great Fast and preparing for Holy Week. I wanted to know if any (oriental, eastern or even catholic) chanters, readers, subdeacons, deacons, or priests have had to switch jurisdiction. ( for example Greek to russian, coptic to syrian, western to eastern catholic) could you share your experience? What is that like? I'm just curious to know. Pray for me.

I suppose it depends.  It's different if you are a deacon or a priest: there are regulations and procedures for transfer.  I'm not sure if such pertain to subdeacons and lower ranks, whether or not they should.  Can you narrow down what you're interested in?

I don't know of any OO priests that switched jurisdictions unless it was a Church of the same rite.  I don't (think I) know any EO priests who transferred between jurisdictions, but I know it happens.

I know of EO priests and deacons who have transferred to another jurisdiction. Before the Bishop of the man's new jurisdiction can accept him, he must first obtain a canonical release from his current jurisdiction. Sometimes Priests are put on loan to another jurisdiction.

One of our local priests, a retired Army chaplain ordained in ACROD, often serves at our OCA parish and helps out at the local Greek and Antiochian parishes regularly when their respective pastors are away for one reason or another.

That sort of thing takes place all of the time. A retired or assistant Priest from another jurisdiction frequently subs for a Priest when he is ill or on vacation.
