Russian Orthodoxy in Ireland

The patriarchal Russian Orthodox diocese in Great Britain and Ireland has just erected four deaneries for its parishes and missions in Ireland. The deaneries appear more a missionary outreach than a response to pastoral needs as none have more than two communities apiece, but God willing they bode well for the future of Orthodoxy in Ireland!


  1. Fr Nikolai from the Stavropegial parish in Dubline has been received into the Sourozh diocese to look after thgese deaneries. I really rather like him.

  2. How lovely! Why is that parish stavropeghial, btw? It seems kind of random from over here in the New World :-).
