WARNING

NOT EVERYTHING THAT

CALLS ITSELF ORTHODOX IS

TRULY ORTHODOX


The above warning was given to me when I first met Orthodoxy in 1986. Today [2009] it is even more perilous, even more difficult to find the Royal Path. For one thing there is a far greater abundance of misinformation. And many materials are missing, and other materials are being rapidly rewritten. For another thing there are fewer than ever guides remaining on the Royal Path, especially who speak English. Hopefully this website will be a place where Newcomers to the Faith can keep at least one foot on solid ground, while they are "exploring."

Website Review
Parish website

Looking at the parish history provided on the website, we see that the parish used to be Rocor under Rocor Metropolitan Vitaly in 1996.  But it apparently went with the Rocor-MP union in 2007, because also there is a report of RocorMP Bp. Jerome's visit to the parish in 2010.  

An aside:
Bp. Jerome was elevated to bishop by the RocorMP after the Rocor-MP union.  Since then, there have appeared many photos of Bp. Jerome on the internet where he is dressed up like a Roman Catholic pope.  Before he was Bp. Jerome, he was Fr. John Shaw, part of the Lebedeff/Whiteford/Shaw internet goon team whose assignment it was to prevent any fruitful anti-union discussions on the internet.   Shaw was rewarded for his service by being elevated to bishop.  [This is how I see it and how I remember it.  Most of the evidence of this has been forcefully removed from the internet, but some does remain.]

This parish is a sad loss for the Rocor.  Yet, the Online Orthodox Library on this website remains a superior collection, with a large number of materials from the Fathers not easily found elsewhere online.  2/20/13

While the collection is really good, there lacks materials on defending the faith and eschatology.
