Good News for the Sarum Use of the Roman Rite

NEWS RELEASE--
On Sept. 18, 2008, Fr. Hieromonk Aidan (Keller), formerly of the old-calendarist Synod of Milan, was received into the bosom of the Russian Orthodox Church Outside Russia by Metropolitan Hilarion of New York. His ordination was regularised, and he was assigned to the Diocese of Eastern America and New York. Fr. Aidan has been blessed by Metr. Hilarion (Sept. 26, 2008) to celebrate services according to the Sarum use of the Roman rite, using the full line of liturgical books published by St. Hilarion Press and which are due for re-issue under the aegis of the Russian Orthodox Church.

Shortly afterward, on Sept. 29, 2008, Fr. Hieromonk Cuthbert (Pierce), formerly of the old-calendarist Synod of Milan, was received into the Russian Orthodox Church Outside Russia, also by Metropolitan Hilarion. His ordination was regularised and he was assigned to serve the same diocese at the Holy Cross Hermitage in Jacksonville, Florida. Fr. Cuthbert, who will now be known as Hieromonk David, was blessed by the Metr. to celebrate services according to the Sarum use of the Roman rite, using the line of liturgical books and materials printed at St. Gregory's Press in New Jersey.
