I have been to a WRO parish. It was very familiar and like what Anglicans (or a least what some ANglicans) do and have done.
What things are done by WRO that aren't RC/Anglican please?
Which one, if I may ask?
What is different from Roman Catholicism? To begin with - the normative majority Revised Roman rite is not used amongst the WRO. Neither are the current Traditional Indult rites, nor the revised Mozarabic or Ambrosian rites (nor the Anglican Use). What Rome follows according to its Sacred Congregation of Rites, and Canon law is not what WRO do. There are differing matters of praxis, liturgy, ceremonial, ornamentation, and music.
For Anglicanism, the normative use of the majority (by the Canon law of each particular church) are the current Books of Common Prayer - Common Worship/1662 English, 1979 BCP, and those of Scotland, Canada, South Africa, etc. None of these are in use in Western Rite Orthodoxy. The Missal parishes (a very small minority in Anglicanism, not only liturgically but theologically) are also not identical with the use of Western Rite Orthodoxy, though similar (founded for the most part to make their worship more like the present Roman Catholic Church, or that of the 19th c./early 20th c., or in the smallest part - like Pre-Reformation or Pre-Schism Catholicism.) Again - not identical. Those who have the liturgy 'close' to WRO have unleavened bread (no WRO use unleavened bread), no WRO use the filioque, all WRO have the practice of the Pain Benit (consecrated bread after Medieval Monastic and Cathedral rites.) Where some Anglicans (outside of their own normative liturgical praxis) find WRO similar is in the same places where Anglicans have adopted the externals of Roman Catholicism (of whatever era or region.) Particular to Anglicanism is 'comprehensiveness' in the sense that one won't find in WRO forms or theology more like Anglican Evangelicals, Puritans, Broad Church, High Church, Aff Cath/Liberal, etc. WRO are all Orthodox - though how that might play out is similar to the 'diversity' one finds amongst the Byzantine rite (comparing liturgy, praxis, and ethos - of a East Coast GOA parish, a West Coast OCA parish, a Texas ROCOR parish, a Midwestern Antiochian parish, etc.)
Would you explain what you mean by "small dependency of a WRO monastery" please? Perhaps I was not totally clear in my question. Are you saying that on Sundays and feasts you do not have one parish or congregation to attend?
Exactly what I said - there is no established Orthodox parish within an hours drive of where we temporarily live. The AWRV model has been that of parishes for the most part, the ROCOR Western Rite towards monasteries with associated parishes, missions, oblates and families. We fall in the latter category - traveling for the sacraments to missions, parishes, monasteries - and otherwise gather to pray the Office as directed on Sundays when we neither have a priest nor can travel. Not uncommon - either to have groups of individuals attached as Oblates (whether a Chapter, a family, or a few here and there), or even missions or families as 'paruchia' of the 'paruchiae' - the Western analogue of metochia/podvorje. 'Paruchia(e)' is a medieval Irish Latin term derived from Latin parochia(e) - the latter meaning 'parish', the former a derivation particular to Insular Medieval Latin referring to a monastic family - a head monastery, associated monasteries, hermits, clergy, parishes, missions, etc.
Again, it seems that my writing is not clear. I apolgize. It was not an incomplete sentence.
Your second question was followed by the cryptic phrase "And ther".
It was my intention to ask what parishes, what congregations, if any, have been in existence since shortly after the WRO was permitted or perhaps dating from the earlier 20th century.
Which I answered - first the canonical basis was established, then the implementation (foundation of parishes, monasteries, missions - reception of groups or individuals.) Not all of the *institutions* are continuous, though the tradition is - as people have relocated, things passed on from clergy to clergy, clergy to laity, laity to laity - that there are many new works indicates that WRO is growing (a healthy sign.) Do some of the institutions survive? A very few, though I'm lacking in exact details on some of them - my point, "the Wrong Question" - what one thinks such evidence might illustrate is likely not what it actually signifies. IOW, it sure looks like a leading question ... especially when the answer given is dismissed as 'not the answer...', which usually means 'not the one the questioner intended to extract'.
By "implemented' do you mean parishes were established? If so, are any of them still functioning without a break?
Yes, and yes. The continuity is mainly of a tradition - and of relationships (such as the relic we have care of - a fragment of a prayer rope. The prayer rope was St. Tikhon of Moscow's, then passed through the hands of ROCOR Metropolitans to St. John of Shanghai and San Francisco - twice blessed by contact with modern saints - then to Abbot Augustine (Whitfield), Abbot of Our Lady of Mount Royal (retired at the Chapel of the Holy Virgin), and on to his spiritual children (Christminster, Holyrood, etc. - including our family.) The chain of relationships illustrates a continuity of networks: Irenee Winnaert, Bp. Jean-Nectaire (Kovalevsky), Fr. Luc Denis Chambault, Abbot Augustine, St. John the Wonderworker, etc. - something that crosses mere ritual.
The AWRV can look for continuity back to the same decade (the 1930's) for implementation or their specific works (the SSB, founded 1933, back under the Antiochians in 1961 with some encouragement and connection with the Russian WRO in Europe. The 1937 date for the Russian Orthodox WRO in Europe extends through to the same period to the USA (1960s) where we have local continuity to the present (though for WRO, like the Roman Catholic Church, there have been/are a few priests 'licensed' (blessed as we say) to celebrate in both rites.)
I know of the ROCOR WR monastery, though the details I would have to look up again. Are there any other ROCOR WR?
Which one? Our Lady of Mount Royal? Christ the Saviour? Saint Petroc? I'd be interested to see where you were 'looking up the details'. And to the last - yes.
