New developments in ROCOR WR for 2017
« on: January 12, 2017, 01:47:27 PM »
From the ROCOR WR Dean, Fr. Mark Rowe:

Quote
Here are some things to look forward to in 2017 already in the works:
New Missal and Breviary will be available
New Ordo will be available
Our first Pilgrimage to England will be in Sept (actual dates tba soon)
Annual Conference @ Mt Alvernia Oct 9-12, 2017
Holy Trinity Seminary, Jordanville and I are working on offering a residential liturgical practicum week each summer that focuses solely on ROCOR WR liturgics.
We will soon have one of our own WR clergy as Chaplain at one of the Marine Corps Recruit Depot (Boot Camp) chapels.
We have received a blessing to form a ROCOR WR monastery, which will formally be announced after Theophany.
We have received another Nun to the WR communities to join Mother Cecelia in Louisiana. They are forming a skete to be under the new Monastery (more info to follow at a later date)
We are looking into a possible summer camp location in 2017 for possible use in 2018.
We are planning on opening missions in the following areas, God willing, in 2017 thus far
St Joseph's -Sarasota, Florida
TBA- St Petersburg/Tampa, Florida
St Aidan's -Nashville, Tennesee
St David of Wales- Las Vegas, Nevada
St Joseph of Arimathea -San Diego County, California
St. Andrew's - Lakeland, Florida
*With also interest in Houston, Texas

I wonder if they'll be located in New Orleans proper (which is where I read Mother Cecelia was located) or if they'll locate out in the desert of Acadiana.

Blessed Nazarius practiced the ascetic life. His clothes were tattered. He wore his shoes without removing them for six years.

THE OPINIONS HERE MAY NOT REFLECT THE ACTUAL OR PERCEIVED ORTHODOX CHURCH

Take a breath, read Ecclesiastes 1:9.

Why not strengthen Christminster instead of opening a new monastery? O.o

I imagine it might be because Christminster is currently on rented/borrowed property.

Exactly my point :-/. That monastery has steadfastly lived Western Orthodoxy for decades, and in its hour of need...this.

Quick question:
I've noticed that on ROCOR's website they removed the Liturgy of Saint Tikhon, with only the Sarum Liturgy available (aside from Gregory). Is this significant in any way?

$200 plus shipping seems a little high.  Comparable Eastern service books are roughly 25-50% less.

Are there plans for an integral e-book? I'd totally buy it, though 200 USD is too much for me particularly.

The new ROCOR missal will contain "The English Liturgy" - a version of what used to be called "The Liturgy of Saint Tikhon".

Very nice, ROCORWRVUK. I prefer no byzantinizations in a Western Rite church but here they're not overdone.

There is more Byzantinization at the high altar of Westminster Abbey or the central altar in the Duomo of Milan than in that ROCOR WRV parish, old chap.

Nice but at $214.00 USD (with shipping) very salty, albeit on par for comparable altar missals.

I'll wait for the pew edition.

Where are the new parishes going to be?

My understanding based on social media posts and some stuff I heard in podcasts is that in several places have some groundwork in place and are working to recruit parishioners. From here:

***MISSIONS IN FORMATION IN THE FOLLOWING CITIES- PLS CONTACT IF YOU ARE IN THESE AREAS AND WANT TO JOIN A FORMING WR MISSION***

CHATTANOOGA, TN

ATLANTA , GA

SAN FRANCISCO, CA

ORLANDO FL

It's been a minute since I've been to Chattanooga, but at one time they had three Byzantine rite churches (Greek, OCA, ROCOR), so adding a Western Rite mission will give it an Orthodox presence very few places in the Deep South have per capita.

The Triangle (Raleigh-Durham-Chapel Hill) has 5, and 3 OO parishes, so I wish we would get a Western-Rite mission around here too.
Quote from: Michael, Pope of Rome
We should fortify ourselves with the truths of the Faith. Our main focus should be to become saints. Unfortunately some spend much of their time in either trying to sort things out or what is worse, trying to convince the world that they are right. If we all aim at sanctifying ourselves, God will intervene and He will straighten things out. We cannot do it without Him.
