    I am an Orthodox priest in Edmonton, AB (Canada) who is becoming Western Rite Orthodox. I grew up Roman Catholic but when I discovered Orthodoxy, I became Orthodox. At that time there was only one option - become Eastern Orthodox. So I did. After serving for nearly two decades in the Eastern Rite of the Orthodox Church, I am now returning 'home'. I am finding that the Anglican liturgical practice speaks more fully to me within the Orthodox context.

    As a 'newbie' here, I am looking forward to learning more an enjoying the discussions.

    Welcome aboard, Father! May you be blessed and be a great blessing to us!

    Can you help me understand the current status of WR in the Orthodox World?

    Welcome, Father. I was Orthodox at one point before becoming Anglican.

    Welcome, Father! Your contribution will be greatly appreciated, as you join the small (but great) rank of wonderful clergy here on this forum.
