Moldovan Church - Canada

Orthodox Christians in Canada will have a Church that is linked to the Metropolitanate of Chisinau and all Moldova.

A priest from the Republic of Moldova wishes to open a church in Canada where services will be offered in Romanian.

Sources: Unofficial translation of material found at: Mitropolia.md/main/show_article/2824 & www.info-prim.md & www.ortodoxia.md/stiri/3073.

The Moldovan community in Quebec will now have religious services in the Romanian language. “Until now services were held only in Russian and Ukrainian” declared Fr. Alexei Mironaş, a cleric in the Moldovan Metropolitanate [which is under the Moscow Patriarchate] at a press conference where he mentioned that he would be leaving tomorrow on a year and one half mission to Montreal, Quebec region, Canada.

“The Moldovan Metropolitanate has good news for Moldovan Orthodox Christians from Canada. Responding to the request of the Moldovan community in Canada, I will depart tomorrow to be close to the Christian faithful there.”

“With the help and Blessing of His Eminence Vladimir, the Metropolitan of Chişinău and all Moldova, we will, for the beginning, rent a small locale, where Moldovans from Canada will come and feel at home” said Fr. Alexei Mironaş. Christian Orthodox Churches with services in the Romanian language now exist in Italy, Portugual, Spain, etc. “Prime Minister Vlad Filat will financially support this initiative. There are sufficient funds to go to Canada and and open a church there” said the priest, without disclosing the sum of money in question. In his opinion, the region to which he has been sent has over 3,500 Moldovan families.

  1. Administrator Says:

    This announcement made by a priest under the Moldovan Metropolitanate, which is under the Moscow Patriarchate, regarding the opening of a church under them in Canada, shows that they have a policy in place to expand beyond their borders. It also shows the close link between the Church and the State, with the Prime Minister paying for this initiative. It could be asked who initiated this policy, the Church or the State? Chisinau openly states that it operates in this manner. One could assume that since the Moldovan Church is subservient to Moscow this also holds true for Church/State relationships in Moscow and in the former Soviet bloc countries. Why won’t the Romanian Church and their mignons here admit as much? When will these Moldovans open a church in New York?


  2. Administrator Says:

    Acest anunt facut de un preot care este sub Mitropolia Moldovei, care este ea insusi sub Patriarhia Moscovei, privind deschiderea unei biserici sub ei in Canada, arata ca ei au o politica de expansiune peste hotarele lor. In plus, arata cat de apropiat este Biserica de Stat, intrucat Prim Ministrul plateste aceasta initiativa. Putem chiar pune la intrebare cine a initiat acest proiect, Biserica sau Statul? Chisinau spune deschis ca asa functioneaza. Putem presupune ca fiindca Biserica Moldoveneasca este sub Moscova asa merg relatiile Biserica/Stat in Moscova si in fostele tari din blocul sovietic. De ce Biserica Romana si subalternii sai de aici nu vor sa admita ce pare atat de evident? Oare cand vor deschide acesti Moldoveni o Biserica in New York?


  3. Administrator Says:

    Some Moldovans in Quebec deny that they invited Fr. A. Mironas to open a Moldovan church here. A follow-up story found on “Azi Moldova” (www.md/ro/story/12623) states that the priest in question was not invited to Canada by the association called “the Community of Moldovans in Quebec”. Maybe he was invited by someone else?


  4. Administrator Says:

    Niste moldoveni din Quebec au negat ca ar fi invitat pe Pr. A. Mironas sa vina in Canada pentru a deschide o biserica moldoveneasca aici. Un al doilea articol gasit in “Azi Moldova” (www.md/ro/story/12623) zice ca acel preot nu a fost invitat in Canada de catre asociatia numita “Comunitatea Moldovenilor din Quebec”. Poate ca a fost invitat de altcineva?

    Nu ai de ce sa te legi. Te legi de ori ce prostie. Your unbelievable.


  6. Administrator Says:

    Politica de expansiune trecand frontierile teritoriale este un fenomen ne-ortodox si vinovatii sunt si BOR si BORusia. Atunci nu este de mirare ca Bucurestiul continua sa vrea putere in America de Nord, in Europa occidental si in Australia. Iata motivele politice imbracate in haine de pastor. Chiar nu intelegi?


  7. Glodea Says:

    [Dl. Administrator,]
    Ia uitati ce am gasit:

    [Autorul ne arata un site unde a aparut un articol in aprilie 2011 despre o noua misiune la Montreal Canada, al Pr. Alexei Mironas, venit de la Mitropolia Moldovei, aflata sub Patriarhia Moscovei. Acest subiect a fost mentionat pe acest website in iulie 2010.]

    Dl/Dmna Glodea,

    Aceasta misiune pastorita de Pr. Alexei Mironas in cadrul Mitropolia Moldovei, aflata sub Patriarhia Ruseasca, si sustinuta financiar de unul dintre cele mai inalte personalitati politice din Moldova, pare bine inceputa de ceva luni acum. Iata ca are si un site: http://www.egliseort-md.com

    Asa cum am mai spus aici: acest “anunt arata ca ei au o politica de expansiune peste hotarele lor. In plus, arata cat de apropiat este Biserica de Stat, intrucat Prim Ministrul plateste aceasta initiativa. Putem chiar pune la intrebare cine a initiat acest proiect, Biserica sau Statul? Chisinau spune deschis ca asa functioneaza. Putem presupune ca fiindca Biserica Moldoveneasca este sub Moscova asa merg relatiile Biserica/Stat la Moscova, si in fostele tari din blocul sovietic. De ce Biserica Romana si subalternii sai de aici nu vor sa admita ce pare atat de evident?”

    Sa nu uitam ca: “politica de expansiune, trecand frontierile teritoriale, este un fenomen ne-ortodox si vinovatii sunt si BOR si BORusia. Atunci nu este de mirare ca Bucurestiul continua sa vrea putere in America de Nord, in Europa occidentala si in Australia. Iata motivele politice imbracate in haine de pastor.”

    Din pacate, guvernele care sustin bisericiile LOR cu bani, le folosesc pentru scopuri politice… Altfel, cine ar indazni sa spuna ca Moldovenii n-au unde sa se duca pentru slujbe ortodoxe in limba romana in zona Montreal, cu 9 parohii/misiuni de la ROEA/OCA si 5 de la ROAA/BOR?

PRAYER OF ST. EPHREM

O Lord and Master of my life,
leave me not with the spirit of laziness,
of despair, of domination, or idle words.

Rather, give me, your servant, the spirit of integrity,
of humility, of patience, and of love.

Thus, Lord, grant me the wisdom to see my own faults,
and not condemn my brother;

for You are blessed, now and forever. Amen.



OUR FATHER

Our Father, who are in heaven,
hallowed be Your name.

Your kingdom come.
Your will be done,
on earth as it is in heaven.

Give us this day
our daily bread,
and forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those
who trespass against us.

And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.
