РПЦЗ: Алексий Иванов рукоположен в сан диакона
В Одесском Архангело-Михайловском храме Митрополит Агафангел за воскресной Божественной Литургией постриг во чтеца, хиротенисал в иподиакона и рукоположил в сан диакона Алексея Сергеевича Иванова.
His family and he come from Buenos Aires, Argentina, where his father and brother (Fr. Alexander) are ROCA priests under our Bp. Gregory of Sao Paulo and South America.
MNOGAYA LETA to Fr. Pablo!

My impression is that Fr. Pablo must make his own decisions about all of this, in consultations with our Vladyka Andronik of course.
However, we do need a full time resident priest in our southern California parish of the Holy Trinity, in Oxnard...which is slightly north of Los Angeles, not far from the coast. And since it is largely a very Russian parish, it would benefit best, with a Russian speaking resident priest, and who serves in Slavonic and English. Most parishioners [actually a fairly large number of them] come up from Los Angeles for services, which is south of Oxnard.
They are, mostly, ROCOR members, who rejected that 2007 union, plus a few converts.
But, so far, there is no official announcement being made.
