Bishop John of Caracas Participates in Moscow Old Ritualist Conference

At a recent conference at Christ the Savior Church in Moscow the secretary of the commission for the Old Ritualist parishes of the Moscow Patriarch, Fr. John Mirolubov, gave a presentation on the past and present role of the Old Rite in the Russian Orthodox Church. Bishop John (Berzins) of Caracas, who was recently made part-time overseer of the Old Ritualist parishes of the Russian Orthodox Church Outside Russia, participated in the conference as part of his ongoing visit to Moscow.

Services at the conference were held according to the Old Rite. Both the ongoing growth of the Old Rite and intolerance to it on the part of adherents of the New Rite was discussed as part of the conference. More here and here.
