Upcoming Western Rite Ordinations in ROCOR

From rwrv.org, the new website of the Russian Western Rite Vicariate:

"With the Blessing of His Eminence, Metropolitan Hilarion, The Rev Andrew William Winters will be ordained a deacon [March 23rd] and a priest [March 24] this month at St Ambrose of Milan, in Putnam Valley, NY. by His Grace, Bishop Jerome. Fr Andrew is appointed Rector of St Cyril of Alexandria in Winston-Salem, North Carolina.

"With the Blessing of His Eminence, Metropolitan Hilarion, The Rev David Kinghorn will be ordained a priest on May 26th at St Joseph of Optina, in Virginia Beach, VA. by His Grace, Bishop Jerome and the gracious consent of their Rector Fr Seraphim Stephens. Fr David is appointed Rector of St Cuthbert in Pawtucket, Rhode Island."

Blogger's note: The ordination form appearing in the "St. Osmund Pontifical" (10th-11th c. Roman rite pontifical from Anglo-Saxon England) is, unfortunately, incomplete. However, what remains of it, matches perfectly the ordination form as printed by Hittorp. And in Hittorp's form, we have, at the beginning of the ordination service, an Acclamation:

Acclamation

¶ The bishop exclaims:

Is he worthy?

R. He is worthy!

Is he righteous?

R. He is righteous!

Is he worthy?

R. He is worthy!

Is he righteous?

R. He is righteous!

Is he worthy?

R. He is worthy!

Is he righteous?

R. He is righteous!

Bishop: May God make him persevere worthily and righteously in His service for ever.

R. Amen.
