Does ROCOR-A still exist?  If so, is there a current list of parishes?
It does still exist, I strolled by one of their parishes recently. No idea of there being any list. Why?

I think I may have caught the end of Liturgy at one of their parishes...I couldn’t find it on any ROCOR-MP list, so I thought maybe it was the other group.

For someone who claims to be the Provisional Supreme Church Authority, they're apparently quite unorganised then
"May the Lord our God remember in His kingdom all Holy Catholic Apostolic Church, which heralds the Word of Truth and fearlessly offers and distributes the Holy Oblation despite human deficiencies and persecutions moved by the powers of this world, in all time and unto the ages of ages."

34th anniversary of the Challenger Disaster

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_2MNAaQHeLw

Heartbreaking watching it, then heartbreaking again watching the happy pre-launch footage of everyone, then heartbreaking again watching footage of the parents of one of the people aboard as they watched their daughter die

There is (was, not sure) an -A parish near DC.  Nice people, priest was a little off.

I've spent the first half of the last couple of Super Bowls in front of the computer.  I usually show up for the halftime show and the second half.  You can bet money on whether or not there will be a wardrobe malfunction with Shakira or JLo, lol.

I have seen no discussion of 20|9~nC()V. If there is anything I should know, please PM me. :]

Some things that worry me:

1. Some people who work with viruses have been detained in USA and Canada.
2. The narrative seems to have been composed by someone who likes snakes: "Don't eat snakes.", but who dislikes bats.
3. A certain president has connoted it with the Devil.
4. Some countries respond very seriously, others seem to want their citizens to get infected.
5. The virus has much genetic similarity with HlV.

I ask because it seems prudent to avoid transfering menace from foes to friends.
