First mission in Western Rio de Janeiro opened
« on: September 15, 2019, 04:22:38 PM »
Despite being home to 18% of the population, Western Rio de Janeiro was the only region of the metropolitan area not to have a canonical Orthodox church, even though many people from there attended churches in other parts of the city, including myself until I moved to Southern Rio two years ago. Not anymore. Yesterday, the first Divine Liturgy was celebrated in the new Sts. Cosmas and Damian Mission (PAOC), in Bangu, by Archbishop Chrysostom, Archpriest Bento Freitas, newly ordained Deacon Emanuel Freitas and local Subdeacon David Vinicius.



The trip included a visit to Mr. José's home. He was chrismated an Orthodox Christian by his bed at 81 years old.



There are other Orthodox churches in Southern Rio (PAOC), Northern Rio (AOC and two or three GOC, formerly PAOC and ROC, both communities merging into others, and one AOC parish that went vagante), Eastern Rio (AOC and PAOC, formerly ROCOR before the PSCA schism), Central Rio (AOC and ROC) and the Lowland (two AOC). There is also PAOC and GOC presence (maybe AOC?) in the countryside, as for Eastern Orthodoxy. As for Oriental Orthodoxy, there are only two SOC parishes in the countryside.

What's PSCA?
Happy shall he be, that shall take and dash thy little ones against the rock. Alleluia.

Once Christ has filled the Cross, it can never be empty again.

Is any of the above Orthodox?  I have no idea, so there’s that.

I have adopted that title for myself.

I love Orthodox Alphabet soup. There should be some childrens' song for learning the alphabet with Orthodox jurisdictions.

As it is tradition in Rio, members of the mission distributed candy for local kids yesterday, in memory of their namesake Ss. Cosmas and Damian, who are celebrated September the 27th in the Tridentine rite.
